    Wide Raw Materials Used to Produce Apple Tray

    Here is a breakdown of the raw materials commonly used:

    Waste newspapers and old books: These are often collected and used as a primary source of recycled paper and books. They provide a significant amount of paper fiber that can be repurposed into new products like paper apple trays.

    Cartons: Used cartons, such as used egg trays, cardboard boxes or packaging boxes, also contribute to the recycled paper pulp. These cartons are collected and processed, removing any adhesives or contaminants, and converted into pulp for paper tray production.

    Scrap paper from paper mills: Paper mills generate a significant amount of waste paper during their manufacturing processes. This waste paper, which may include trimmings and rejected paper products, can be recycled and used as a valuable raw material for making paper apple trays.

    Scrap paper from carton factories and printing plants: Carton factories and printing plants often produce excess or rejected paper products that are unsuitable for sale or further use. These scrap papers, after sorting and cleaning, are integrated into the recycling process and contribute to the recycled paper pulp production.

    Poly Apple Tray Molding Machine End Products

    The end products of a paper apple tray making machine are typically paper trays or containers specifically designed for packaging apples. These trays are made from recycled paper pulp and are molded into a shape that securely holds and protects the apples during storage and transportation.

    While the primary use of the machine is for making apple trays, it is possible to customize the molds to produce trays or containers for other fruits (pear, peach, orange, mango…) or products as well. For example, with the right mold, the machine can produce tomato trays, egg trays, fruit trays, or even trays for delicate items like glassware or electronics.

    The versatility of the machine allows for the production of various tray designs and sizes, depending on the specific needs of the customer. The end products are eco-friendly, as they are made from recycled materials and can be recycled again after use.

    It is important to note that while the machine can potentially produce a wide range of trays, its primary focus remains on apple tray production. Customization for other products may require additional molds or adjustments to the machine settings.

    Advantages of Poly Apple Tray Making Machine End Products

    Lightweight yet sturdy: Paper apple trays are lightweight, which helps reduce overall packaging weight and transportation costs. Despite their lightweight nature, they are still sturdy enough to protect apples during handling, storage, and transportation. This combination of lightweight and sturdy properties makes them an efficient and cost-effective packaging solution.

    Breathable and absorbent: Paper trays allow for proper ventilation, which helps to maintain the freshness and quality of apples. The breathable nature of the paper allows any excess moisture to escape, reducing the risk of mold or spoilage. Moreover, paper apple trays produced by Poly apple tray making machine can also absorb any excess moisture, providing a protective environment for the apples.

    Biodegradable: Paper apple trays are biodegradable, meaning they can be broken down easily by microorganisms in the environment. This helps to reduce plastic waste and protect the environment. Additionally, paper apple trays can also be recycled for a more sustainable solution to meet the requirements of the international markets.

    Versatile and customizable: Paper apple trays produced from Poly paper tray making machine can be designed and customized to fit different apple sizes and counts. Manufacturers can adjust the mold design and size to accommodate various apple varieties, ensuring a snug and secure fit. Additionally, the trays can be easily branded or printed with logos, product information, or promotional messages, enhancing the visual appeal of the packaging.

    Major Equipment:

    Hydraulic Pulper

    Pulp Refiner

    Pulp Pump

    Water Pulp

    2. Pulp Molding

    The pulp mixture is then poured into the pulp molding machine, which molds the apple trays into the desired size and shape. The machine applies a vacuum to remove excess water and create the mold shape, which is then transferred to the drying stage.

    Major Equipment:

    1-Side Molding

    4-Side Molding

    5-Side Molding

    8-Side Molding

    3. Drying

    Major Equipment:

    Natural Dryer

    Brick Dryer

    Automatic Metal Dryer

    4. Packaging

    After the apple trays have passed quality assurance, they are then packed and ready to be shipped. The packaging process involves the use of a packaging machine or done by hand, where the apple trays are stacked and wrapped with thin plastic sheets or shrink wrap.

    Major Equipment:

    Hot Press




    How to Choose A Paper Apple Tray Production Line?

    When looking for a paper apple tray molding machine, there are several factors to consider to ensure you purchase one that is the most suitable for your needs.

    1. Consider Output Capacity

    The output capacity of the machine is an important factor when making a purchase. Make sure you choose a machine that can produce the number of trays required on a daily basis.

    500 to 11,000 pcs/h apple tray making machines are available in Poly Machinery.

    2. Consider Automation

    The degree of automation of the machine is also a key factor to consider when buying a paper apple tray molding machine.

    Choose a fully automatic machine to reduce labor costs and improve efficiency, especially when you invest in a medium and large scale production. The only drawback is that the automatic paper tray making machine costs a little higher than semi-automatic and manual ones.

    If you are in a small scale business, manual and semi-automatic apple tray making machines are offered, which can still offer high quality production of paper apple trays, but more economical. Besides, due to the multi-layer drying system, manual paper tray making machine are more space-saving.

    3. Consider Drying System

    One popular method is natural drying, which typically involves manual labor. With this approach, more than two individuals are required to perform the necessary tasks. It is an economical choice as it involves low construction costs and allows for fast construction in large fields. The drying trays used in this system typically number less than 2000 pieces, making it suitable for smaller-scale operations.

    Another drying system option is the brick dryer, which boasts a high level of automation. This technology requires a labor force of 2-3 individuals to operate efficiently. Construction of the bricking dryer typically takes around 15-30 days. Importantly, this type of dryer is suitable for all models, ensuring versatility in its drying capabilities.

    For those seeking an automated and efficient solution, the multiple-layer metal dryer is a popular choice. This system requires only 1-3 laborers to operate effectively. It offers the advantage of fast and easy installation and is suitable for all models, providing flexibility in its usage.

    Except for the above factors, you also should keep your factory scale, your labor force, fuel type and your raw material… in mind. Keep in touch to get professional advice.
