The VDL PMB - TPC 160 is part of our cigar finishing line-up. This machine combines two machines in one frame to reduce the footprint and create a perfect process between storage, tipping and finishing it in cellophane wrapping. A mouthpiece or tip creates an extra dimension in smoking a cigar.

The JL provides a continuous product supply with a hopper capacity of 1.500 to 2.500 cigars. Refilling is easy by adding complete bundles without stopping the machine. The JL places the cigars for the next phase, tipping.

The TP 160 is the first step in this process. It handles practically all standard models of cigars and tips. You can use other tips by changing the hopper and sliding guide. The hopper holds sufficient tips for about 1 hour’s running. A vibrator conveyor feeds the tips to the fitting station. Before the tip is attached to the cigar a thin layer of glue is applied on the cigar end.

The final phase is on our cellophane part of the RSC machine. This part gives the end user the ultimate experience and excitement of unwrapping their enjoyment. The C-160 offers the possibility to wrap the cigar in polypropylene, laminate or aluminium foil with or without a tear strip. With speeds reaching over 160 cigars per minute, we created a machine
that provides the ease of creating cigars with an exceptional finish and experience.

Besides the tipping option, we can also offer a ring, wood, perforating, piercing or cutting option.
