Elastic yarns in the winder system of a textile machine are deformed into a certain convex polygon in the process of winding at an operating speed of the bobbin holder rotating viscoelastically in contact with the drive roll. The polygonal deformation increases and develops into a serious vibration of the machine. This paper presents a model and a theoretical analysis to investigate the mechanism of this vibration phenomenon which is regarded as instability due to the time lag. The bobbin holder and the drive roll are both modeled by the one-mass one-shaft system. From the numerical computations using parameters obtained experimentally, the analytical results showed a good agreement with the phenomenon generated in the actual machines.
