Tobacco has been produced for many years from the ancient times. In fact, in the past these products were al hand-made. However, with the years, this trend has changed with the help of technology. Therefore, over the years this industry has grown and developed into major plants. As a fact, they are able to cater to the needs of many smokers worldwide. Given that, even with constant warnings against these harmful consumer products, companies continue to meet with the consumer demands. With the help of automated systems these companies are able to produce tobacco products in large supplies. As a fact, it’s considered one of the major industries in the world that generates large revenue yearly.
For that matter, these manufacturing plants have improved the premises with high tech machinery to keep up with the demand. Hence, with continuous technological advancements, these companies continue to seek ways to design better models to fulfill the supply and demand gap. With that said, this article would be highlighting the process of making tobacco with automated systems:
- Step 1: transferring and processing the nicotine-rich leaves
The first step of the manufacturing process is transferring the tobacco from the silo to the automatic cigarette machine. This is where the raw materials are stored, prior to the commencement of the procedure. Then, the nicotine leaves are processed to extract the maximum flavour it contains.
- Step 2: cutting the nicotine
The processed and extracted tobacco is then transferred into another part or machine, which divides it, after being slicing it. These then are divided equally and rolled in the shape of the cylinder (shape of the cigarette). These rolled up cigarettes are then sent into another compartment of the automated machines. Afterwards, the cylindrical shapes are flipped and positioned in the correct way.
- Step 3: Final product
Since, the automatic cigarette machine had made production convenient, the final output is sold in good quality finesse. Now the paper is fed into another compartment and would be cut off, filled, added the filter and sent in for printing the logo. Then, the final stage of it includes packing of the final product into packs, which is operated by the machine.
These automated systems, with the help of technological advancement has made it much easier for companies to produce these consumer items in bulk volumes. Therefore, compared to previous era, it’s much cost effective and become convenient. However, still, there’s an ongoing process of bringing about policy frameworks to control the production, as it’s harm to the society.
