The lay is the distance the wire moves per 360 degree twist of the flyer. The twists per minute is set by the flyer (lead) speed, the inches per minute is controlled by the follower (nip). The relationship is the setpoint in the M-Trim which controls the nip. The reels of wire in the flyer are fitted with friction brakes to control tension.
