Capricorn is the cigarette or filter rod FIFO reservoir conveyor, to be used between a cigarette maker and cigarette packer.
The machine performs as a tray-free reservoir system, enabling continues operation for the linked upstream and downstream machines.
First-in-first-out to eliminate degradation of cigarettes
The characteristic feature of the machine is that the first rod coming in is also the first one to come out (FIFO), which eliminates drying out and degradation of the cigarettes and guarantees curing time while filter rods are transported.
Tracing and automatic rejection of disqualified rods or filters
Capricorn enables tracing of selected portion of the product (traceability) and automatic rejection of disqualified rods. The simple and safe filling process enables prompt emptying and a short brand- change procedure.
Capricorn widely adopted
Since it was launched in 1998, Capricorn has been adopted by all major cigarette manufacturers as their new standard buffering equipment.
