Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9720476A1] Disclosed is a manual packing device for cigarette tubes, in particular cigarette filter tubes, with a tobacco packing chamber extending along the length of the tube and formed by a housing (12) mounted in a bottom section (14), a packing rod (16) on a cover (18) which covers the housing (12) and is hinged thereto, an expelling slider (22) for expelling a strand of tobacco from the tobacco packing chamber into a cigarette (filter) tube via an aperture (24) in the housing (12), a clamping device (59) which clamps the cigarette (filter) tube securely on a tubular connection piece (50) at an outlet of the tobacco packing chamber, and a catch, snap-in or other similar device (60) for detachably connecting the housing (12) and cover (18). In order to adapt the filling length of the tobacco packing chamber, a displaceable stop element (84) is allocated to the expelling slider (22) and used to adjust the tobacco filling position of the expelling slider (22) and match it to the desired filling length of the tobacco packing chamber.
