New filter maker from Molins

| July 15, 2013

Molins Tobacco Machinery has developed a new filter making machine, the Forte.

While retaining the familiar layout and footprint of previous machines, the Forte has been completely improved and upgraded, according to Molins, “to set the standard for filter rod production for the future.”

New features include a touchscreen control panel that constantly feeds information to the operator and upgraded electronics that facilitate offsite monitoring and diagnostic control. The basic machine setting can be stored as a “recipe,” and each filter brand can be implemented at the touch of a button.

The new machine also features servo drives to reduce maintenance and eliminate the requirement for change gears. It has an Octave-type bobbin changer with hub braking and splice-on-the-fly splicing. The redesigned garniture improves filter quality, while a servo-driven paper drive capstan roller greatly improves the machine’s ability to process porous paper.

The Forte continues Molins’ quest to build and supply state-of-the-art machines that will produce the very best of quality in even the harshest of environments. According to the company, all Molins machines feature low maintenance and cost of lifetime ownership plus the full Molins worldwide support network.

The Forte is available to order now and can be viewed in the United Kingdom for a limited time.

Molins celebrates 100 years of service

| October 18, 2012

The Molins Machine Co. was founded on Oct. 18, 1912—exactly one hundred years ago.  The Mark 1 cigarette making machine introduced in 1928 was the first of its kind and led to a long line of machinery that became the latest standard for quality. During these years the company revolutionized the tobacco industry with innovative engineering that shaped cigarette and packaging production across the world.

Today Molins remains a prominent company in the industry with one of the largest installed bases of machinery in the world. A dedicated service to customers for spares and maintenance has fostered relationships that have endured for very many years.

“With new machinery like the Octave and Alto plus other upgrades and machinery in the pipeline, new and old customer relationships getting stronger and the same dedication to quality and customer satisfaction, it’s clear that Molins will be around for a long time yet… perhaps even, for another hundred years,” the company wrote in a press statement.
