Title: Method and apparatus for winding a continuously advancing yarn

Abstract: A method and an apparatus for winding a continuously advancing yarn at a constant winding speed to a package on a rotating tube. The tube is mounted on a driven winding spindle. Before the winding cycle, a yarn guide moves the yarn from a threading position to a transfer range for transferring it to the yarn traversing device. In so doing, a transfer tail wind is produced on the tube outside of the traverse range. In accordance with the invention, the speed of the yarn guide is controlled as a function of the winding speed such that a certain number of winds are deposited on the tube for producing the transfer tail wind.
