Minimizing the distance between the point of manufacture and the point of quality verification is critical in today’s fast paced, quality conscious cigarette and filter manufacturing environments. OMI+ provides a compact, fast, accurate and robust measurement package to ensure the right tools are available to the people responsible for the manufacturing quality.
The measurements of weight, diameter / circumference, pressure drop and ventilation have proven to be the fundamental parameters used during cigarette manufacturing. These parameters support the confidence that the correct yields are delivered during the smoke validation more than many hours later.
With such a time difference between the time of manufacture and the final quality assurance validation, confidence in the measuring tools on the production floor is a must. The OMI+ delivers accurate measurements, fast sample processing, a simplified user experience, IT integration and exceeds the needs of most manufacturing environments.
With its small footprint, the OMI+ can easily be accommodated directly at the making machine so minimizing the distance that the maker’s operator has to travel to complete a quality sample. With its ability to operate either as an individual instrument or as part of a factory wide network of connected instruments, the OMI+ easily adapts to any infrastructure. With brand, maker and calibration libraries, the OMI+ can synchronize data across a network and distribute data directly to the people who need it.
