Are you looking to become a manufacturer of egg trays or egg cartons and want to buy a pulp molding machine? There are several features of the machine that you have to keep in mind before you become a manufacturer. Starting from the raw materials used in the machine to the packing of the trays, you need to be aware of all the features to make sure that the machine provides the desired output every week. Most importantly, as a manufacturer, you should pay extra attention to the egg tray production line. Here are some of the most important features and production process of pulp molding machines that you need to know.
1.Raw material consumption
The pulp molding machines require waste paper to make the desired trays or cartons that you want to manufacture. The most common type is egg tray making machine and egg carton making machine. These papers are shredded and then mixed with water to form the slurry pulp. The question is, what is the quantity of waste paper that will be required to manufacture an average of 2000 to 3000 trays per hour? Ideally, the size of the machine and production output is what decides the number of raw materials that will be needed. If you are looking to manufacture around 2000 to 3000 trays, then you will need about 110 kg to 175 kg of waste paper per hour. The difference in the range is due to the wastage that is involved. You will often notice that the drying process produces several poorly-constructed trays. So, you need to them into account while calculating the total quantity of raw materials.
Different pulp molding machines come with different molds that you need to check before you buy the machine. If you will be manufacturing egg cartons and not egg trays, you will have to find a machine that is a specialist in producing egg cartons. You should find can experienced pulp molding machine manufacturer, such as Beston Machinery. There are machines that can produce both the types of molds and it will be best to buy a machine that has this facility. The automatic machines come with a unique pulp molding process that has got several properties such as vacuum pump, negative pressure tank, baler, transfer mould, high-pressure washer, and the mould itself. After the pulp slurry is made, it is sent into the molding segment where the slurry is given shape according to the item that you want to manufacture. It can be egg trays or egg cartons according to the mold you provide.
