Who Will Invest in A Fruit Tray Making Machine?

1. If you have a large orchard, and you buy a lot of trays from others, you can buy a fruit tray machine to make trays by yourself. For one thing, it can reduce your cost of buying trays. For the other thing, the trays make it easy to transport and protect your fruits to sell at a higher price. Generally, a small apple tray machine will be enough for your own use.

2. If you want to make trays for business, a paper apple tray machine will be a great choice. Firstly, there is a promising market for paper trays because it is eco-friendly and portable. With the ban on plastic packaging products, there will be a great demand for paper trays. Secondly, the fruit tray machine is not as popular as egg tray or egg carton machine, so it is a less competitive market.

3. If you have a lot of waste paper to process, including old books, newspapers, offcuts, old cartons, etc., then you can have a paper tray machine. Compared to paper making machine, paper pulp tray machine is more affordable.

Apple Tray Manufacturing Machine Price

Beston apple tray making machine price is from $8,000. It is different with the capacity, drying system, auxiliary equipment, etc. Generally, the larger the capacity, the higher the price. And the automatic one with a metal dryer will be more expensive. But it can save your cost on space and labor. When you do a cost estimate, you need to take the operating cost into consideration, including the labor cost, space expense, fuel cost, raw material cost, etc. For example, if you operate in countries with low income and low minimum wages, you can choose a manual model. If not, the automatic one will be better.

Tips for Choosing A Suitable Machine

So when you choose an apple tray machine, ask yourself the questions below:

  1. How many apple trays you will make per hour? You can do some researches to know your local market well. At the same time, you can determine the design of your trays.
  2. How much will you spend on this project? If you have a limited budget, you can start with a small pulp molding machine with natural drying.
  3. Where to get enough waste paper? We use waste paper as raw material. If you want to make quality paper trays, you need to use more newspaper, old books instead of old cartons. If you get waste paper from 200 kilometers away, it will increase your cost as well. So remember the transportation cost.
  4. How large is your plant? Natural drying needs much space for drying. And the brick drying line needs at least 40 meters in length. If you don’t have enough space, you can choose a metal dryer.
  5. What are the available fuels in your area, natural gas, coal, wood, or fuel oil? And which one is the cheapest? It matters to your operating costs.
  6. Is it expensive to employ workers? The apple tray production line is easy to operate, which means no professional workers are needed.
