the scaferlati obtaining
the threshing quality (grain size: strip size and edges)
the scaferlati quality in terms of:
- Folding capacity (density)
- Grain size (% of short blades)
At the manufacturing
control mechanized of cigarettes (weight, module and pulling resistance)
control of combustibility, the sectioning, the gluing and the aspect
In Post Production
