Egg Carton Manufacturing Process

Pulping: Put the egg carton materials (various waste paper) and water into the pulping machine in a ratio of 3:1, and after about 40 minutes of high-concentration stirring, they will be automatically transported to the pulp supply tank for storage. These pulps are transported by the supply pump to the mixing tank for further mixing, and then put into the supply tank and transported to the forming machine through the supply pump.

Molding: The molding machine absorbs the pulp to the egg carton mould through vacuum suction, and at the same time sucks the excess water into the vapor separation tank, and then the water is pumped into the pool for storage by the water pump; the mold of the pulp molding equipment absorbs the pulp to form the The manipulator of the forming machine takes the finished product out and sends it to the drying conveyor belt.

Drying: Our drying system mainly uses high temperature to evaporate the water in the formed pulp egg carton, so that it becomes firm.

Packaging: This is a system specially created by Beston for customers. It automatically organizes the dried egg trays, saves floor space and counts, and improves work efficiency.
