Title
(EN) ORIENTATING A TOBACCO PRODUCT
(FR) ORIENTATION D'UN PRODUIT DE TABAC
Abstract
(EN) Apparatus is disclosed for orientating a tobacco product (20) containing a strip component (4). The apparatus comprises means (12) for producing an image of the tobacco product, means (18) for determining an apparent width of the strip component from the image, means (18) for determining an amount of rotation of the tobacco product (20) based on the apparent width, and means (16) for rotating the tobacco product relative to the imaging means (12) by the determined amount of rotation. This may allow the product (20) to be rotated such that the strip component has a known orientation with respect to the imaging means.
(FR) Est divulgué ici un appareil pour orienter un produit de tabac (20) contenant un composant de bande (4). L'appareil comprend des moyens (12) pour produire une image du produit de tabac, des moyens (18) pour déterminer une largeur apparente du composant de bande à partir de l'image, des moyens (18) pour déterminer un degré de rotation du produit de tabac (20) sur la base de la largeur apparente, et des moyens (16) pour faire tourner le produit de tabac selon le degré de rotation déterminé par rapport au moyen d'imagerie (12). Cela peut permettre la rotation du produit (20) de telle sorte que le composant de bande a une orientation connue par rapport au moyen d'imagerie.
