Manual Egg Tray Making Machine

Brief Introduction Of Manual Egg Tray Machine

A manual egg tray making machine is a type of egg tray making machine using human labor to deliver the finished product to natural drying and packaging in the egg tray production line. The pulping process and the egg tray molding process are the same as the semi-automatic egg tray machine and the automatic egg tray machine.

Though the decisive difference between automatic and non-automatic machines is not the productivity, the production capacity of a manual egg tray production line in actual application is usually between 1000-2500 pieces per hour. So the machine is also known as the small egg tray making machine. It is an optimal choice for the small-scale investment since the cost is much lower and the cost-recovering is much quicker.

1. The above consumption data is based on the weight of each egg tray 100 grams.
2. The above data is based on pure pulp without adding powder. If adding 20-30% powder, the actual paper consumption is 70-80% of the above data.

Advantages of AGICO manual egg tray making machine

The prominent benefit of investing in a manual egg tray making machine is the low investment. The manual egg tray production line uses natural sun and wind to finish drying. As long as the weather condition is suitable, the energy and construction cost of drying equipment is saved. 

  • Small investment and quick return.
  • No construction cost of brick dryer or cost of the metal dryer. Save factory floor area.

  • Easy operation
  • Workers can easily finish the collecting and transferring of wet egg trays.

  • Energy saving
  • Since the drying uses natural sun and wind, there is no extra energy consumption.

  • Environmentally friendly
  • The raw materials and the water used in the process are recycled.

Working process of the manual egg tray making

To understand the whole process of egg tray production, we start with the selection of raw materials. The raw material of the manual egg tray machine is waste paper. In the production and processing process, the main part is a physical reaction, only a few chemical products are added as waterproofing agents. These chemical materials are basically all retained in the finished product after the egg tray is dried, and there is no discharge pollution.

Four manufacturing steps of manual egg tray machine

The working process of the manual egg tray making machine includes four systems. The pulping system, the molding system, the drying system, and the packaging system.


The raw materials are made into pulp at this stage. Waste papers are fed into the hydraulic pulper by manpower or a conveyor machine. The rotor impeller in the hydraulic pulper rotates and the raw materials are broken and turned into slurry by the blades. Some additives can be added to the slurry for improving the performance of the egg trays. The pulp slurry is further mixed and adjusted with water(paper to water 1:3) to get the required concentration.

Pulping equipment used in this step mainly includes the hydraulic pulper, the pulp pump, the pulp refiner, and the sewage pump.

The forming mold sucks the pulp onto the surface of it through a vacuum pump. The pulp is deposited because of the fiber contained in it. At the same time, a large quantity of water is drained out. The wet egg trays are produced. The transfer mold takes the part of removing wet egg trays from the forming mold and placing it on a grate hold by workers.

Molding-related equipment mainly includes a vacuum pump, air compressor, vacuum negative pressure device, water pump.



The drying system for the manual egg tray making machine is mainly natural drying. After the egg trays are formed by the molding machine, they are collected and transferred to the outdoors by manpower using carts. The wet egg trays will be dried under the sun. The temperature and wind affect the drying efficiency. That’s why customers located in Africa like to choose natural drying over brick drying and metal drying. Of course, if you have a sufficient budget, you are free to choose brick drying or metal drying.
