MLT laser perforation systems are used in the tobacco industry for off-line perforation of cigarette filter tipping paper webs.
MLT laser units can be found as the on-line perforation system at a number of different cigarette manufacturers to perforated finished cigarettes directly on the production line.
The aim in each case is the manufacture of cigarettes with reduced tar and nicotine values - previously known as "light" cigarettes.
Laser perforation means that the applicable legal limits of modern filter cigarettes can be met reliably.
