AGS – gluing system

The AGS gluing system is based on the old glue-needle system that was used for years on MID and MIR machines. The glue-needle and reservoir are replaced by a special glue-plate and several gluepumps. The glue is pumped by the gluepumps towards the glue-plate. The glueplate has the exact shape of the wrapper.

To control the amount of glue on the glue-surface, the plate is separated into several compartments (two or three). Each compartment has its own glue-pump. This ensures more accurate regulation of the quality of glue and less moisture in the cigar. At the same moment as the needle insert is made, the glue-plate is lifted and glues the wrapper.

In case no leaf is detected at the pick-up position, a pneumatic cylinder blocks the lift movement. A cam positioned on the main-shaft of the machine, drives the liftmovement mechanically.

Advantages are:

  • Less glue consumption
  • Accurate and reliable
  • Less moisture in the cigar

Although there is much more to tell about the performance of this machine, we prefer to do so in person. Please leave your details via the contact page or call us and we will contact you as soon as we can. You can also send us your question directly.
