TEWS Inline, at-line and Laboratory High Speed Solutions

Cigarette & Filter Inspection System

The MW 4420 measurement station is ideal for controlling the quality of many different cigarettes, whether with or without filters, filter-tipped and multifilter.

The test station detects moisture, weight and dense-end profile of a cigarette. In addition, the system thus is able to measure charcoal content and triacetin in cigarettes as well as NTRM (foreign bodies) and it can precisely detect the position and condition of aromatic capsules in filters or determine the different sections of a multifilter. It was tailormade for the tobacco industry, where moisture and density are key to the quality of product.
