Abstract On a continuously operating cigarette packing machine, a group (2) of cigarettes (3) is transferred from a pocket (14) – integral with an endless conveyor (5) having at least one substantially straight portion – to a first seat (60) – carried on an input wheel (7) of a wrapping line (4) and movable with respect to the input wheel (7) – by transferring the group (2) axially from the pocket (14) to a second seat (28), which is fed by an intermediate wheel (6) along a portion of the endless conveyor (5) and is movable with respect to the intermediate wheel (6); and by then orienting the first and second seats (60, 28) with respect to the respective wheels (7, 6) so that one of the first and second seats (60, 28) penetrates the other for a given time.
