To allow for the safe and efficient transport of tobacco products, from freshly harvested leaves and cured bricks of lamina to blended tobacco and full cartons of cigarettes, Megadyne offers a series of specialty belts for each phase of the production process.
Our Product portfolio includes conveying and timing belts for primary processing, including harvesting and curing; secondary processing, including blending and forming; and packaging.
Tobacco Industry Belts
Tobacco processing facilities require hundreds of belts to stage and convey tobacco throughout every step of primary processing; we offer conveyance solutions for each phase, from picking and weighing leaf to conveying bales.
Our belts reliably convey large, condensed bricks of lamina as they are guillotined into smaller, more manageable pieces before being further processed into a state suitable for use in cigarettes.
For the packaging stages of cigarette production, we can provide a number of FDA-approved belt solutions: Our spun cast Hytrel® belt, which features a small footprint, can be used as a vacuum belt for paperboard cigarette packages, and a variety of our specialty profile urethane timing belts are well suited for packaging cartons into boxes for shipping.
