The tobacco industry uses MLT laser perforation systems for the offline and online perforation of cigarettes filter and tipping paper. This allows cigarettes with reduced tar and nicotine values to be produced, which in the past were referred to as "light" cigarettes. The laser perforation allows the applicable statutory limits for modern cigarettes to be reliably observed.
We offer laser system solutions for perforating single bobbins and multiple bobbins.
These allow typical hole speeds between 40,000 holes per second and 1,000,000 holes per second to be achieved. With a single layer, annual volumes of up to approx. 800 tonnes tipping paper, in 3-shift operation can be processed.
We also offer customer-specific laser modules for online perforation in cigarette manufacturing.
