Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19635598A1] A handling installation is disclosed, in particular for cigarettes. Known installations for handling cigarettes have a reservoir for temporarily storing the cigarettes, a maker (10) for the cigarettes and a packer (11). The maker (10) is arranged upstream of the reservoir (12) and the packer (11) is arranged downstream of the reservoir (12). In known installations, synchronising the action between reservoir (12), packer (11) and maker (10) causes problems. In the disclosed installation, the working speed of the maker (10) and packer (11) is controlled depending on a measured filling level of the reservoir (12). When the filling level of the reservoir (12) is low, the working speed of the maker (10) is increased, when the filling level is high, said speed is decreased. On the contrary, the working speed of the packer (11) is increased when the filling level is high but reduced when the filling level is low.
