Success through innovation

CSS1000 Cigarette Side Seam Adhesive Application - Pump Fed.

Product:

CSS1000 Cigarette Side Seam - Pump

Application:

The application of aqueous dispersion adhesive (PVA) fed by a pump, on a cigarette making machine.

Overview:

Designed to apply adhesive to the side seam of the cigarette paper ona low or high speed making machine.

Key Features

  • Available as a pump or gravity option. Pump suitable for speeds over 8000cpm.
  • Both the gravity fed and pump fed Side Seam Adhesive Application Systems incorporate the Kaymich side seam applicator, which has a diaphragm seal eliminating adhesive entering the working parts of the applicator, providing reliability.
  • Automatic retracting stand for applicator mount. Fine adjustment of the applicator to paper position.
  • Adhesive application relative to machine speed.
  • Integral shorts blower removes tobacco shorts from the seam of the cigarette rod.
  • Manual over-ride for easy flow checks and setting.
  • Choice of nozzle designs depending upon host machine and lap width required. 
  • Carbide coated nozzle tip for long life.

 

PUMP OPTION

  • Near linear flow at all speeds.
  • Suitable for high and low speed.
  • Extensive adjustment of flow.

FAQs

APPLICATOR

Can the nozzle 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 applicator serial number located in the keyway. Otherwise confirmation of the nozzle diameter and host making machine is required.

 

PUMP

How do we adjust the amount of adhesive applied to the cigarette rod?
The amount of adhesive applied can be adjusted in the controller by inputting a value in units of cc/1000cigs or cc/1000m.

Is the application proportional to machine speed?
Yes, an optical encoder is fitted to the machine that gives 300 pulses per cigarette.

What types of glue can be used?
A wide range of PVA and Starch based adhesives.

Does the system apply more adhesive when the rod maker is accelerating to full speed?
Yes, an over feed function within the controller allows the user to specify exactly how much extra glue is required. This amount is also proportional to machine speed.

Does the system need to be calibrated?
Only when a different adhesive is used. The process takes less than 5 minutes to complete.

What making machine speed can the system handle?
The latest software can process machine speeds of up to 20,000 cpm.

Notes

  • Pump option maximum speed 20,000 cpm.
