How to Make Paper Trays?
1. Making Pulp from Waste Paper
The first step is to break waste paper into paper pulp. The raw material can be old newspaper, old cartoons, old books, etc. The main euqipment includes hydraulic pulper, a pulp refiner, pulp pumps, water pumps, etc. It is simple to operate. What workers need to is to put the waste paper and water into hydraulic pulper. It will be smashed into pulp and stored in the pulp pool. Then there is a pulp refiner to make pulp smooth for use. The prepared pulp will be pumped into molding system. By the way, Beston offers intergrated pulping system for small egg tray machins, which is easy to install and save your space.
2. Molding Pulp into Trays
This is the key section of an egg tray production line. The prepared pulp will be transferred through pumps into pulp molding equipment. With the use of vacuum pump and air compressor, paper pulp is molded in forming molds. Different pulp products can be formed by means of different molding dies. Then the transfer molds will demold the wet trays. Beston pulp molding system is automatic, which makes egg tray production line easy and safe to operate. Moreover, with different designs of molding dies, you can make different trays, such as egg trays, egg cartons, cup holders, etc.
3. Drying Trays
Although most water of pulp trays is removed with the help of a vacuum pump, the egg trays after demolding are still wet. So you need to dry them. There are 3 different drying modes to choose from, which decide the automatic level of an egg tray production line. They are natural drying (manul), brick drying line, and metal drying line. Which one is the best? It depends on many factors, such as your investment cost, the scale of your egg tray plant, etc.
For example, if you have a BTF1-3 egg tray machine and want to lower your cost, natural drying will be your best choice. However, if you have a BTF6-8 machine, you have to choose a brick or metal drying line. The former one is cheaper but requires more construction works. While the latter one is more expensive but easy to transport and install. More importantly, it can be multi-layer to save space. You can contact Beston for a customized business plan.
