What Steps and Processes Are to Produce an Egg Tray?

Raw Materials

Before starting egg tray production, you need to prepare enough raw materials: waste paper and water. Waste paper includes waste cartons, waste books, waste newspaper, old magazine, book leftovers, recycled and used egg trays and other kinds of waste paper can be put into production. The other is 3 times water. In addition, 3 times more water than waste paper is needed for each production.

Pulping System – Mix Waste Paper and Water into Pulp

To produce high-quality egg trays, the composition of the pulp is critical. First of all, we must remove the debris in the waste paper to ensure the fiber composition of the pulp. Under the action of a hydraulic pulper, waste paper and water will be stirred for nearly 40 minutes. Then the uniform and fine pulp are stored in the supply pump.

If a customer wants to go to a high-end egg tray manufacturing plant, Beston provides a pulp refine system that can process a variety of waste paper and create a more detailed pulp to produce high-quality egg trays.

Molding System – Mold the Shape of Egg Trays

The pulp supply pump transfers the pulp to the forming mold, and then the vacuum system will firmly adsorb the pulp on the mold and remove part of the water (excess water will be stored for subsequent production). This part is the key to determining the shape of the egg tray. The most common style is an egg tray with 24/30 eggs or an egg box with 6/12 eggs. When you want to change the shape of the product, you only need to change the mold of the molding machine part. We support customized molds, you can contact Beston designers to provide you with free customized services.

Plastic And Aluminium Molds

Plastic and aluminum egg tray moulds are available in Beston. Each plastic mold has a one-year warranty period. Its service life is about 3-5 years. When you buy an egg tray machine, Beston offers the plastic mold for free. Each aluminum mold has a two-year warranty period, and the service life is about 5-8 years (specifically, it needs to be determined according to the customer’s usage). The aluminum mold has good corrosion resistance and can be customized according to the different needs of customers. Contact Beston Designer now to get free customized services!

Is Beston Egg Tray Production Line Profitable?

Yes! Beston egg tray production line is definitely a profitable investment. After continuous upgrading, the Beston egg tray production line can achieve a good effect of saving resources and reducing production costs.


A full set of egg tray production line price is from $8,000. (Price provided here are for reference only. The specific price will change according to the equipment model, the choice of accessories and local conditions.)

In addition, you should also consider the cost of raw materials, water and electricity consumption in production, labor costs, profit of end products, and so on. You can refer to the table below and consider egg tray making machine cost based on your actual situation.

Here we simply made a cost-effective analysis. This report takes BTF4-4 egg tray production line in Namibia as an example. Suppose this machine works 22.5 hours a day.

  • Paper: 185kg/h, unit price in Namibia is 0.18 usd/kg, total cost 749.25 USD;
  • Water: 360kg/h, unit price in Namibia is 0.68 usd/kg, total cost 5508 USD;
  • Electric: 80 kw/h, unit price in Namibia is 0.14 usd/kw, total cost 252 USD;
  • Labor: 5 workers per shift, unit price in Namibia is 9.5usd/h, total cost 1068.75 USD.

Total cost is about 7578usd/d.


Egg tray price in Namibia is 0.23usd/d. The production can reach 56250pcs/d. So the gross profit is 12937.5USD/d.

Long-term earnings are considerable:

  • Net profit per day: 12937.5 usd – 7578 usd = 5359.5 usd;
  • Net profit per month: 5359.5 usd × 30 days = 160,785 usd;
  • Net profit per year: 160,785 usd × 12 months = 1,929,420 usd.
