Winding systems are major components in a wide variety of industrial factories for metal sheet or web conveyance, papermaking or polymer film extrusion processes. In those systems, it is clear that the quality of products and the performance of systems are determined by tension and velocity control of the moving material. Although the machine is classified as a nonlinear system typically, however, PID based controller are employed mostly in the industries. In this paper, based on a real machine a simulator with adaptive PID controller of the winding machine modeling and control are presented. Diverse control parameters can be inserted manual or automatic into the simulator via LabView software interface, and the user can observe the simulation results before apply them into the real machine for finishing products, thus saving costly material and time for pre-experiments.
