    Wide Raw Materials Used to Produce Shoe Tray

    When making paper shoe trays through pulp shoe tray molding machines, you have various options for waste paper materials. Here are some types of waste paper commonly used in the production of pulp molds:

    1. Corrugated Cardboard: Cardboard boxes, cartons, and packaging materials made from corrugated cardboard are excellent sources of waste paper. They offer good strength and rigidity to the final shoe trays.

    2. Old Newspapers: Recycled newspapers are commonly used in pulp molding processes. They provide a good source of cellulose fibers and can be easily converted into pulp.

    3. Office Paper: Discarded office papers, including white or colored printer paper, letterhead, envelopes, and other office waste, can be utilized in the production of shoe trays. They are typically of good quality and offer a smooth surface.

    4. Magazines and Catalogs: Glossy or matte magazines, catalogs, and brochures can be shredded and added to the pulp mixture. They can bring visual appeal and colors to the shoe trays.

    5. Tetra Pak Cartons: Tetra Pak cartons, commonly used for packaging liquids such as milk or juice, are also potential sources of waste paper. The cartons have a combination of paper, plastic, and aluminum layers that can be recycled into pulp and molded into trays.

    6. Old Books: Damaged or outdated books can be shredded and mixed with other pulp materials. They can add unique textures and thickness to the shoe trays.

    It’s important to remove any non-paper elements like plastic, metal, or wax coatings from the waste paper before processing it into the pulp mixture. Additionally, ensure that the waste paper is clean and free from contaminants like food residues or chemicals.

    Poly Shoe Tray Molding Machine End Products

    Poly shoe tray making machine has 3-6 molds on each side, mainly used to produce paper shoe trays for any type of shoe. But the molds can be changed to produce egg trays, fruit trays, nursery seedling trays and other paper pulp trays. The paper shoe trays produced by the machine have high strength, good stability, and beautiful appearance.

    The end product of the pulp tray making machine is not only used for stretching shoes in a safe manner but can also be used to package other light weight or fragile items such as small electronics or even fragile pieces of glass. This makes the pulp tray making machine an ideal equipment for industries such as electronics, jewelry and crafts.

    Process of Shoe Tray Production Line

    Understanding the process of shoe tray production line can help businesses and individuals create high-quality shoe trays efficiently while producing minimal waste. Have a look at Poly shoe tray production line working process.

    1. Pulping Prep

    The shoe tray production process begins with the collection and sorting of waste paper, which is then shredded and mixed with water to create a pulp mixture. This pulp mixture and then is filtered to remove any impurities, such as inks and other debris.

    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 shoe 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

    Once the shoe trays have been molded, they are sent to the drying stage. The drying is done using natural, brick or meta dryer that evaporates any remaining moisture. This process ensures that the shoe trays are completely dry and ready for next stage.

    Major Equipment:

    Natural Dryer

    Brick Dryer

    Automatic Metal Dryer

    4. Packaging

    After the shoe 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 shoe trays are stacked and wrapped with thin plastic sheets or shrink wrap.

    Major Equipment:

    Hot Press




    Advantages of Paper Pulp Hot Press Machine

    The paper pulp hot press machine offers a multitude of advantages, making it a valuable asset within the paper industry.

    1. Increased Strength and Density:

    The hot press machine applies pressure and heat to the paper pulp, resulting in increased strength and density of the final product. This helps to enhance the durability and structural integrity of the pulp-based items, such as shoe trays.

    Through its hot pressing mechanism, it ensures that each paper product is well-formed, sturdy and exhibits smooth surfaces.

    2. Improved Surface Smoothness:

    The hot pressing process helps to smoothen the surface of the pulp-based products, giving them a more appealing and polished appearance. This is particularly important for shoe trays, as a smooth surface allows for easy placement and removal of shoes.

    Besides, the heat applied during the hot press process improves the moldability of the paper pulp. It helps to achieve more intricate and precise designs, allowing for the creation of customized and aesthetically appealing shoe trays.

    3. Faster Production Cycle:

    Hot pressing reduces the drying time required for the pulp-based products. By applying heat and pressure, the machine accelerates the evaporation of moisture, allowing for faster production cycles and increased efficiency.

    4. Waste Reduction:

    Hot pressing minimizes the wastage of paper pulp. The improved moldability and increased density of the pulp result in reduced trimming and waste during the production process.

    5. Consistent Quality:

    The hot press machine ensures consistent quality and uniformity in the final products. By controlling the temperature, pressure, and pressing time, it produces shoe trays with consistent thickness, shape, and surface characteristics.

    What Do You Need to Produce Paper Shoe Trays?

    To make paper shoe trays using a paper pulp molding making machine, the following raw materials are needed:

    1. Waste paper: This can include newspapers, magazines, cardboard, or any other type of paper waste. The waste paper is shredded and soaked in water to form the paper pulp.

    2. Water: Water is used to soak the waste paper and create the paper pulp. It helps in breaking down the fibers and making them malleable for molding.

    3. Binder: A binder is added to the paper pulp to improve its strength and durability. Common binders used in pulp molding include starch, glue, or natural additives like vegetable extracts.

    4. Dyes or pigments (optional): If desired, dyes or pigments can be added to the paper pulp to give the shoe trays a specific color or pattern.

    Additionally, you will need the following materials/equipment for the paper pulp molding process:

    1. Pulp molding machine: This is a specialized machine designed for creating paper products through molding. It helps shape the paper pulp into the desired form, such as shoe trays.

    2. Molds or trays: These are the molds or trays specifically designed for making shoe trays. They provide the shape and form in which the paper pulp will be molded.

    3. Drying equipment: After the paper pulp is molded into shoe trays, they need to be dried. This can be done using a piece of specialized drying equipment.

    Please note that the specific requirements and materials may vary depending on the type and design of the paper pulp molding machine you are using. Contact our experts to get solutions.
