The MI006 is a standardised tapping machine specially designed to fulfill the specifications of ISO 10140-3 and ISO 140-7: Measurements of impact sound insulation of floors in laboratory and field environments and ISO 717-2: Rating of Impact sound insulation.

The MI006 consists of five hammers in-line. Each hammer weighs 500 g and falls free from a distance of 40 mm. The average time between impacts is 100 ms.

3 rubber feet support the unit in order to insulate the tapping machine from vibration.
