|Wire Twisting #2|
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 (reel). The desired lay is the setpoint ratio in the M-Trim. The M-Trim also corrects the speed for the increase in the diameter. The traverse controls are not shown but could be done mechanically or with an M-Traverse controller.
