Tobacco Fill & Label Machine
The customer is a long established company making branded rolling tobacco and snuff. They still use a machine that grinds leaf for the snuff that dates back to the 1700’s!
The challenge was working with a substance that we had never worked with before. The snuff powder was so fine that we had to undertake a significant amount of research and development to determine the correct way to handle it, which we managed to achieve.
The machine accepts two part plastic boxes, applies a label to each half, fills the base with the measured volume of snuff, and places the lid to complete the assembly. We have supplied machines in the past to “fluff up”, weigh and individually pack snuff into tins and add labels to both sides.
