TOBACCO INDUSTRY

The production of high – quality tobacco sheets that can be successfully integrated into cigarette blends requires very reliable equipment made to a high technical standard.

At the heart of a tobacco sheet plant is a high - quality steel belt.

The tobacco slurry is cast onto the belt which transports the material through sheet forming and drying processes to form a dry sheet product.

This product is then cut into hand sized pieces, cooled and packed into containers.

As this process is continuous, it must employ belts that are able to stand up under constant wear and repeated change of temperatures.
For this challenging task , Berndorf Band employed Martensitic stainless steel Type NICRO  52 , as the main belt grade.

The required high quality of the steel belts from Berndorf Band makes them the first choice for this process.
