Brief Introduction of Egg Carton Manufacturing Process
Pulp molded products can be made with the help of raw material like waste paper. It is an efficient and cost-effective process, which yields high profits. The final product obtained is eco-friendly and doesn’t cause harm to the environment. The process doesn’t involve any harmful raw material or by-products that may cause may cause different types of pollution. The raw material can be obtained from old newspapers, books, waste paper cartons, etc. They are simple and easily available. With the ban on plastic products, the pulp molding machine is getting popular, including egg tray molding machine, egg carton machine, etc.
The egg carton making machines is a common pulp molding machine. It comes in different models depending on the capacity of the cartons manufactured, the total power consumption, labor force, materials consumption, fuel consumption, and electricity consumption. Beston Machinery is a qualified egg tray machine manufacturer, which has different models of egg carton machines for sale. The capacity of these models ranges from 1000 pieces/h to 6000 pieces/h. The machine mainly consists of a pulp making system, molding system, drying system, and a packing system. For proper functioning of the egg carton manufacturing machine, a series of predetermined processes have been set.
Pulp Making System:
The first and foremost step for egg carton making is breaking the raw material into pulp. A hydraulic pulper, water pump, pulp refiner and pulp pump are used to produce good quality pulp. After the pulp is produced, two types of pools are used for further processing. Pulp pool is used for temporarily storing pulp and the other pool is used for pulp refining.
A molding system contains a molding machine, vacuum pump, and an air compressor. It determines the quality, design and the scale of the production line. The shape, groove size, appearance, etc of the cartons depends on the dies of the molding machine. Dies have a lot of influence on the quality and quantity of the cartons. The molding system has detachable dies. The pulp formed in the first step is compressed in the air compressor and the mold is removed carefully with the help of the vacuum pump.
Drying & Packing System:
After the cartons are molded, they are being dried with the help of drying equipment. The egg cartons need to be hot pressed with the help of a hot press machine to make the cartons smooth and denser. The temperature might reach up to 200 degrees while the cartons are being hot pressed. And an automatic packing system includes hot press, packer and counter equipment. An automatic egg tray making machine will be more expensive but efficient.
1. They are highly stable and have very long durability.
2. The operating process and maintenance are very simple and safe.
3. They are custom designed according to customer requirements.
4. The output and returns are very high.
5. They can be used in manufacturing different pulp molded products with the help of different molding dies, like egg trays, egg boxes, fruit trays, shoe trays, etc. using the same pulp molding production line.
Depending on the budget and the size of the manufacturing plant, the type of machine can be chosen. A small egg tray making machine can be used if the budget is less. It is cheaper than the automatic or semi-automatic egg carton making machine. Egg carton making machines are highly profitable and simple to use and don’t require extensive labor or power consumption. They are widely used across the world and are gaining high popularity.
