Discover outstanding machinery for your needs

We are your competent hardware partner in the global tobacco industry. Our machines not only set industry standards but also provide customized solutions for every stage of your production. 

With our cigarette and filter machines, we set global benchmarks in terms of performance, speed, efficiency, quality, and flexibility in processing products from tobacco and tobacco alternatives. 

With a maximum of experience, know-how and a passion for innovation, we solve the challenges of a changing industry. "The entire industry is currently undergoing a profound transformation. This requires intelligent answers. And as a technology leader, we must provide them", explains Andreas Panz, Chief Technology Officer in the Körber Business Area Technologies. "Our machines and systems take the production of cigarettes, mono, special and multi-filter sticks, tobacco heating products and pre-roll products made from hemp to a new level." We also offer logistics components and machines for the production of drinking straws.

Jörg Wittek, as Vice President, heads the R&D Secondary department in the Körber Business Area Technologies. 

How has product development changed for us in recent years? 

Jörg Wittek: In parallel with market developments, our product development focuses on increasingly diverse topics. The significance of standard solutions is steadily decreasing in favor of customer-specific developments, especially in the Tobacco Heating Products (THP) sector, where significantly more development projects take place than in the traditional cigarette area. All major manufacturers are constantly testing new products and markets in this area. Modular machine concepts such as our Multi Segment Maker (HAUNI MSM) are therefore particularly in demand. 

What do these changes mean for the specific development process? 

Jörg Wittek: Besides expertise and enthusiasm for innovation, communicative skills and modern project management methods are more crucial than ever today. Development processes involve an intensive dialogue with you as the customer. From the initial idea to the prototype and the final production line, our project management closely accompanies you, continually exchanging information about goals, interim results and challenges. 

How does this change the relationship with you as a customer? 

Jörg Wittek: In the development process, such projects often redefine customer relationships and deepen collaboration. In the THP segment, many solutions are built for the first time – that's where our company becomes a true development partner for the tobacco industry. We engage much earlier in the development processes of our customers today. Especially with our laboratory expertise, we are optimally positioned: we can test the end products produced on our machines on-site at any time.
