How To Manufacture Egg Trays with Waste Paper?

Paper egg tray manufacturing process is to recycing waste paper. The whole egg tray manufacturing process can be roughly divided into 3 parts: pulping-molding-drying.


To make fine pulp, you’d better put 70%-75% water and 25%-35% waste paper to the pulp beater(overall ratio of water:paper is 3:1). And after about 40 minutes, the pulp is completed. The pulp is automatically transported to the pulp supply tank for storage.


Pipes convey the pulp to the forming mold, and the egg tray takes shape. The air compressor blows the egg tray from the forming mold to the transfer mold, and from the transfer mold to the conveyor belt. The vacuum pump removes the extra water of the egg tray on the forming mold, and the pumped water is recycled to the sewage pool to form recycling.


The drying system uses fuel to generate hot air, which enters the drying room to ensure that the temperature in the drying room is about 200 degrees. After taking away the moisture in the wet tray, you can obtain finished egg trays.

FAQs About Egg Tray Manufacturing Machine

Raw Material Related

What raw materials are available?

Carton, wrapping paper, books, notebooks, A4 paper, document paper, pulp, etc.

What is the ratio of water to paper?

According to our configuration, the reference mass ratio of the high consistency pulper is 5:1-6:1

Mold Related

What is the difference between aluminum molds and plastic molds?

Aluminum molds have a long service life, and plastic molds are cost-effective.

What is the size of our plastic mold?

290*290mm, 295*295mm, 300*300mm.

Why is the egg tray mold of the molding machine made of plastic?

Under the premise of not affecting the use effect, it is cost-effective.

Can I mix different molds on one machine?

1. The vacuuming position of a mold layout is fixed, and the shape and size of the mold directly affect the vacuuming efficiency of the entire layout.
2. Due to the different height, area, number and position of openings of different types of molds, it is very likely that the vacuum degree is unstable and the molding effect is not good.
Recommendation: Use the same type of mold for one layout.

Process Related

Are additives required? What is the concentration of the additive?

Generally, no additives are needed, only water and paper need to be mixed. If you need color, you can add color additives. If you need to increase the adhesion rate, take talc powder as an example. If you need to add talc powder to achieve high retention rate, you must use Filler handling system. The water suspension containing 20%-30% talc filler was treated in a mixer at high speed for 6 minutes, diluted with water and then added with chemical additives, and the filler suspension was made into the slurry after 5 minutes of treatment.

How to add color?

Before the dye is added to the pulper, the amount of toner and auxiliaries required for each tank of slurry should be calculated according to the weight of the raw materials (refer to the selection for details), and the toner and auxiliaries should be put into a container with a stirrer. Dilute and dissolve, and the temperature of the dissolution process is controlled at 60-85°C. (Generally, 25kg of dye can color 30,000 egg trays)

What are the ingredients and how to add water repellent?

The content of added water repellent varies according to different water repellents. The waterproofing agent is generally rosin, paraffin wax latex or rosin paraffin glue. In order to obtain high-quality products, the pulp of non-bonded waste paper products must be added with 3% rosin size relative to the absolute dry fiber mass of the pulp. The addition method is sizing in the slurry in the homogenizing tank.

What type of equipment molding machine is equipped with a case with the company's LOGO?

BTF4-8 metal drying and above models.

How can we make our products more distinctive?

The aluminum mold can be customized, and the company’s name or logo can be added to the aluminum mold.
