This thesis deals with the integration of differential algebraic equations systems. Generally speaking the execution of numerical integration algorithms may introduce some errors, which could propagate ending up in a wrong description of system dynamics. This issue, named drifting, will be highlighted by dealing with a specific constrained mechanical system presenting. Such system consists of a looper, which is a mechanism used in the steel production to sense and control the tension acting on the material. The thesis unfolds as follows: a first section model the looper and inspects the main properties related to its joint space and singularities. A brief introduction to stability analysis on multidof systems is proposed. Then, the thesis proceeds analysing looper stability properties, eventually finding a globally asymptotic stable configuration. Lastly, the drifting is highlighted by numerical simulations. To solve this issue two control algorithms are proposed: the first is the Baumgarte algorithm and the second consists of a nonlinear stabilizer. A performance comparison of both algorithms is then presented at the end of the implementation description.
