Automated guided vehicles for tobacco
Automatic handling is made necessary also by health and safety regulations governing the weights that operators are allowed to lift and the number of times they are allowed to lift them during a shift. Due to increased complexity of the tobacco process with much more blends and packing requirements automatic handling is important as well to eliminate production errors and handle recipe management.
Optimised transport of tobacco blends to feedersMany tobacco processing plants look for added value with a larger variety of blends in smaller batches. Just-in-time delivery of tobacco materials from primary to secondary is essential to cut costs and save time, especially when switching to another blend.
Our AGV management software E’tricc® helps you optimising the tobacco flows to the most critical points in your process to make sure all tobacco blends are present at the right time and place.
