Challenges of the metalworking industry.

In all processes of metal strip production, the strip tension has a significant influence on the final product. If precisely controlled tension is not used in the strip, the product quality decreases, the scrap rate increases, and the line speeds are limited.

Our solution

Precise measurement results are the basis for fast control and high production speeds with constant material tension. This is essential for efficient operation – with high productivity and the highest quality. But it does not end here.

Additional benefits

FMS goes one step further. We differentiate ourselves with our products from the competition and, with customization, we also find solutions that go beyond the standard range. Timely, uncomplicated and with superior technical know-how.


High-quality materials, expert craftsmanship, and a superior design guarantee shorter set-up times and a long service life, even under the harshest conditions. Viewed over the entire product life cycle, this means you will increase productivity and improve the quality of your products. 


Our solutions are the first choice for many machine builders in the field of industrial production. Some of our products have been used under the harshest conditions for decades and come back to Switzerland only for overhauls to continue operating reliably.
