JTI prepares tobacco products and packs them into bags and boxes for sale and export. Before Pattyn's machines came into play, their biggest challenge was manually placing those big bags into big boxes. Now, with automation, the process has transformed: foil bags are automatically inserted, filled with tobacco, and sealed. 

This change has eased the workload on employees and boosted capacity. Plus, the machine can run for 12 hours straight without needing any interventions. It's a win-win for everyone at JTI!
