Depending on customer requirements the tow is plaited in moveable or fixed containers or boxes. The plaiting procedure for the different fiber products has huge varieties and therefore can be controlled on all three axes individually.
Especially the plaiting process of cigarette tow has to follow the highest specification related the final plaiting result. The tow must be plaited parallel with an even surface to avoid any density differences in the final product.
The tow quantity can be programmed during the plaiting motion by means of the patented control system "Profiling". The plaiting quality is optimized by keeping the distance between the plaiting funnel and the tow surface constant. Thus, high demands regarding precise tow plating are completely satisfied.
