3. What Steps And Processes to Produce Paper Egg Trays?

It is important to understand well the egg tray manufacturing process. As mentioned, there are four steps in an egg tray production line. The first step is to break scrap paper into pulp. In this section, we often employ a hydrapulper, a refiner, and pumps. Then the prepared pulp will be molded through the molding machine. However, there is still more than 60% of the water in wet pulp molded products. That’s why we also need a drying system. After drying, the end products will be packed up for sale. This is the entire production line to manufacture paper egg trays. Below is an egg tray making machine video for your reference.

ROI Analysis

We do not suggest investors buying a machine relying on the price only, but the ROI analysis. First, let’s see the advantages of the egg tray manufacturing business.


Egg tray production line recycles waste paper into trays, which can reduce waste paper and turn it into something useful. In addition, the egg tray making process is free of contamination. All the waste paper and water can be reused.

2.High Return on Investment

Firstly, we use waste paper as raw materials, which is abundant and cheap. For example, the sorted residential papers are only $ 10-14 per ton. So it can lower your investment cost. Besides, even the small egg tray machine can make 1,000 pieces of egg trays per hour. According to the price in Amazon, each egg tray costs about 0.05$. That is to say, you can earn $500 a day if you have a BTF-1000 egg tray machine work 10 hours a day. Below is a sample ROI analysis for your reference.
