In the tobacco industry, especially in cigarette production, Temco blends know-how from the packaging, hygiene and food industries. The high speeds combined with smooth running optimize the manufacturing process as well as the output. Due to the long service life of the bearing arrangements, whether journal bearing, roller or roll, this high productivity is maintained for a long time. Customers also benefit from products compliant with the American Food and Drug Agency (FDA) .
During the cigarette pack packaging process, fine films must be deflected safely and without damage. Temco's deflection rollers ULR and ULW are coated with a non-stick coating so that sensitive foils do not slip or even tear during the fast production process.
To open the foil of cigarette packets, an attached tear tab is used to break through the packaging. On the one hand, this must be stable so that it does not break without external impact, and on the other hand, it must open the packaging easily and without problems. Bearings used for this process are highly precise in order to meet such challenging requirements.
