Interested in a Quality comparison of Cigarette Maker Machines


I would be keen to read expert, non-biased reviews comparing quality parameters of Cigarette Maker Machines, namely the Hauni Protos 1-8 versus the G.D SpA 121AF12.  I am actively reviewing machines for a new production site and any information will be highly appreciated.

Hi, I am a technician with 20 years experience working in India.  Here is my view:

Sr. #QUALITY PARAMETER (KSF Cigt. At target density of 0.240 gm/cc)Cigarette Maker: Protos 1-8Cigarette Maker: GD121AF12Comments
1Tobacco OV % in the hopper during trials11.8813.9Moisture loss in transit in case of Protos1-8
2Tobacco degradation % (L + M)
– Ex Hopper4557
Fluidised bed hopper of Protos 1-8 handles tobacco gently. However, tobacco degradation % of both HSMs is comparable
– Ex Garniture3747
– Tobacco degradation810
3Cigt. Dia. / Circumference (in mm)7.84/24.637.82/24.55
GD121 has a better SD of the circumference
– Circumference SD0.020.014
4Ovality %0.350.35Ovality of both is comparable
5Avg. cigarette Weight (in mg)932898As per cigarette specifications
6Individual Cigt. Weight SD
– Long term SD65
GD121 has a better SD which is a mark of consistency. This consistency in SD is observed during all density trials
– Short term SD1515
– Total SD16.1515.8
7Firmness index (in mm)2.42.5HSM gives better & consistent firmness
8End loss in %1.51.4Ends quality is better with improved DED
9Tobacco falls out in mg/cigarette109End fallout is as per International standard
10Rod finishV. GoodV. GoodAs per International standard

MY CONCLUSION: Overall, inclusive of all parameters, the GD 121 Cigarette Maker machine is superior to the Hauni Protos 1-8.
