    Challenges of the wire and cable industry.

    Production errors cost money. Repairs are often time consuming or not possible. The procurement of new machines is very costly and attempts to reduce errors in the production process is often not possible with conventional technologies. A system for easy retrofitting and monitoring of the most important parameters is required.

    Our solution

    FMS offers its customers real added value in realizing their goals. Precise strand tension measurement/control and radio transmission of signals – essential for efficient operations management – with high productivity and the highest quality. But it does not end here.

    Additional benefits

    FMS goes one step further. Extensions can be used to monitor switches and sensors on the rotating machines. Especially with existing systems, this can mean a considerable increase in machine safety with little effort.

    Data analysis

    In addition to the technical aspects, the solutions of FMS generate measurement data that can be collected and evaluated by you for the continuous improvement of the processes or system. Use this information to save costs and to cope with the increasing international competitive pressure.


    Benefit directly from faster set-up times, consistently high product quality and reproducible process parameters. Increasing productivity, as well as improving the quality of your products lead to the customer satisfaction.
