Low input, maximum output – gentle and efficient pneumatic transport of tobacco using smart SACU technology.

SACU tobtronic® for pneumatic transport of tobacco

Transport control

Our patented SACU tobtronic® is one of the most effective technologies available for transporting cut tobacco gently during pneumatic conveying. It increases tobacco yield in cigarette making and reduces the downtime of cigarette makers. The system, made up of two units, continuously measures air and cut tobacco speed in the feeding pipe and regulates transport to as low a speed level as possible. The integrated anti-blockage control function prevents blockages inside the piping.


  • Higher material efficiency and improved tobacco yield
  • Improved cut tobacco quality
  • Reliable and on-demand supply of cut tobacco
  • Reduced energy costs
  • Compatibility with all feeder and maker types


  • Measuring and regulation of air and cut tobacco conveying speed
  • Leakage monitoring and compensation for the receiving airlock of the cigarette maker
