Process for Manufacturing Egg Trays

To well understand the egg tray manufacturing business well, let’s review the steps in brief. There are 4 steps for making egg trays from waste paper, namely, pulp making, molding, drying, and packaging.

1. Pulp Making Process

Add 1 part of water paper and 3 parts of water into the hydraulic pulper to beat it into pulp. In order to make high-quality trays, you can use more old books or newspapers instead of cardboards. Then the pulp after preliminary processing will be stored in the pulp pool. After that, there is a stirred tank with pulp refiner, which can mix the pulp more evenly. You can also add some additives like coloring agents to change the color of the end products. The stirred tank is connected with the pulp pool and the molding machine. So the prepared pulp will be used for pulp molding.

For small scale egg tray machines, we also have integrated pulping system to choose from. It combines the pulper, pulp refiner, and pulp pump together, which can reduce floor space. The pulp making system is automatic. In general, only one worker is needed for feeding waste paper.

2. Pulp Molding Process

The main equipment of the molding system is the pulp forming machine. With different molding dies, you can make different products. Also, you can choose plastic or aluminum molding dies. The plastic one is cheaper, while the aluminum one is more durable. Beston uses rotary pulp molding machines, which is more effective and safer. Except for the molding machine, there is a vacuum pump and air compressor. The vacuum pump is used for forming and removing 60% water from the wet trays. While the air compressor is for demolding. It seems difficult. But in fact, it is fully automatic. You can find some videos from Beston Youtube.

3. Drying System

This system aims to dry the wet trays. You can choose natural drying, brick drying room, or metal dryer. The difference in the egg tray drying line matters the automation of your egg tray production line. In general, natural drying is only suitable for small egg tray machines, such as BTF-1-3, BTF-1-4, and BTF-3-4. It takes 2-3 hours to dry the trays on windy and sunny days. And also, it needs more space and workers. While it only needs about 20 minutes for brick or metal drying systems. Egg tray dryer will be an important part of your egg tray manufacturing project report. You need also take the available fuels, weather, labor force cost, etc. into consideration.

4. Packaging System

Large scale production line always employs an automatic packing system, including automatic counter, packer, etc. Some also have a hot press to make the surface more tidy and good-looking, especially for egg carton machine, apple tray machine, etc. You can choose according to your needs. Below is the Beston egg tray production line, which has worked for 7 years.

Preparation for Egg Tray Manufacturing Project Report

In order to make a professional egg tray manufacturing business plan, you need to do some preliminary work.

1. Do Market Research

You need to know what pulp molded products are in great demand in your local market, and how many trays you will make to sell. For example, if you have a poultry farm with 300,000 chickens and you make trays for your farm only, a BTF-1 machine is big enough. In addition, make clear the locally available fuels. The dryer can be designed with fuel sources.

2. Prepare Your Money

The Beston egg tray making machine price is from USD8,000 to 70,000. Besides that, you also need space, workers, fuels, etc. So you need to put all these factors into consideration.

3. Where to Get the Raw Materials?

You need a reliable supply of waste paper. And more old books or newspapers are better. So you’d better know the waste paper price, which will directly influence your profits.

4. Find A Place for Your Factory

The egg tray machine itself is not big. But you also need space for raw materials and end products, for pulp making and drying. For example, the brick drying line is single-layer. So it requires at least 40 meters in length. If you don’t have enough space, you need a multilayer metal drying room instead. In addition, your egg tray factory should be convenient for transportation.

5. Know Your Local Policy

There is no polluted water or air during the production process. It may be helpful for you to get the certificates. But you need to know the related policy in your area. For example, there is a ban on plastic products, which will make the waste paper recycling industry more promising.

6. Cooperate With Reliable Supplier

There are numerous egg tray machine manufacturers and suppliers on the market, especially in China and India.
