FMI-6 Takt

The smart alternative for in-line moisture content takt meters

The FMI-6 Takt inline moisture meter STOP & GO system is the alternative after the withdrawal of the Hydromat DMT 8 of Gann and the takt system of Bess Bollman from the market.

The advantages:

  1. Contactless measurement of wood means no pins left in the wood, no problem with pins in the planer etc.
  2. An objective measurement of the whole board instead of a measurement at one spot only.
  3. Real-time data
  4. High repeatability
  5. High accuracy
  6. Proven track record


FMI-6 Takt is approved according to the rules and regulations in:

  • EN14080:2013 annex G
  • EN15497:2014 annex D
  • EN16351:2015 annex G

The communication protocol 21 enables easy communication with all types of machine lines.
