Abstract

A cigarette packing machine wherein empty packs are produced independently of the rate of formation and transport of blocks of cigarettes. The blocks of cigarettes are introduced into a compacting turret which rotates past a detector serving to effect transfer of an empty pack to a pack filling station whenever it detects a satisfactory blocks so that a particular empty pack is assigned to each scanned block. Unfilled packs are temporarily stored or immediately removed from the packing machine. If stored, the empty packs can be moved stepwise along an endless path defined by one or more turrets or one or more turrets and one or more belt conveyors.
