The SWWV is a machine that makes bunches with head shaped ends at medium speed. The machine consists out of a bunch making part, named SW, and a head shaping part, named WV.


The filler is fed manually into the hopper. A conveyor belt with carriers mounted onto it, transports the filler towards the formatchamber. By a mechanical dosing-system the amount of tobacco is controlled. A vertical knife cuts the tobacco and a horizontal pusher pushes the filler onto the HTL paper. After the filler is positioned, the HTL is folded around the filler by the garniture. After gluing one end of the HTL a straight bunch is produced. Finally the bunches are cut and kicked out of the SW machine onto the transport system of the WV.


To give the straight bunches the desired head-shape, both ends of the bunches need to be pressed by head-shapers. Five bunches on the discharge-chain of the SW are lifted by a walking-beam construction and positioned into the first 5 positions of the WV (head shaper). At this position, the first pressing of the cigar is done (about 3 seconds). After this pressing the headshaped bunches are taken by the same walking beam construction and transported towards the second press-position of the machine. During lift and lay-down, the bunches are rotated 90 degrees. After pressing is completed, the head shaped bunches are put on a conveyor chain that transports the bunches out of the machine and fall onto a collection-belt.


  • Cutting
    To cut double length bunches on the
    discharge-side of the machine.
  • Safety housing
    The SWWV machine will be completely guarded
    with safety housing according CE standards.
  • Format parts
    For each cigar format, format parts can
    be produced
  • WV part available as stand alone
