CSS1000 Cigarette Side SeamAdhesive Application System - Gravity


CSS1000 Cigarette Side Seam - Gravity


The application of aqueous dispersion adhesive (PVA) fed by gravity, to the side seam of a cigarette rod, on a cigarette making machine.


The original kaymich Gravity Fed Side Seam adhesive application system, designed to apply adhesive to the side seam of the cigarette paper on a low speed making machine.


  • Gravity suitable for speeds up to 8000cpm and subject to adhesive specification employed.
  • Incorporates the Kaymich side seam applicator, carbide tipped for long life.
  • Optional manual or automatic retracting stand. Fine adjustment of the applicator to paper position is offered by both options.
  • No moving parts during application.
  • Integral shorts blower removes tobacco shorts from the seam of the cigarette rod.


  • Reliable and consistent application, high production efficiency.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Lower cost alternative to pump fed solution.
  • Simple to install and operate.




Gravity Fed Side Seam Adhesive Application System

Can the nozzle on the Kaymich glue applicator be replaced as a single part?
No. The needle and nozzle are machined as a matched pair to ensure the integrity of the seal.

Are the nozzles available with different diameter outlet?
Yes. 0.8mm, 1.0mm, 1.5mm and 2.0mm as standard, other sizes on request

How can we determine the correct replacement needle and nozzle?
The simplest way is to provide Kaymich with the glue applicator serial number located in the keyway. Otherwise confirmation of the nozzle diameter and host making machine is required.



How do we adjust the amount of adhesive applied to the cigarette rod?
The flow rate of the adhesive is controlled by the rear adjuster on the applicator; this determines the distance the needle retracts from the nozzle and hence, adhesive flow.

Is the application relative to machine speed?
Yes, the Venturi pressure drop principle is created by the cigarette paper and air passing over the end of the nozzle. It is therefore self-regulating.

What types of glue can be used?
Synthetic resin emulsion – PVA or EVA, viscosity range 150 – 1500 centipoise with solids content 45% to 55%.

What making machine speed can the system handle?
Depending upon materials, up to 8000cpm.


  • Gravity option can only be used with PVA adhesive.
  • Gravity option maximum speed 8000 cpm.
  • Minimum adhesive viscosity for gravity option 150 centipoise.
  • Maximum adhesive viscosity for gravity option 1500 centipoise.
  • Not to be used with lubricated air supplies.
