Pulp Molding Dies

What is Pulp Molding Dies?

Pulp molding dies, also known as molds or pulp mold, are essential components used in the pulp molding process to manufacture products such as egg trays, fruit trays, egg cartons, shoe trays, bottle trays, industrial product packaging and other molded pulp packaging items. 

Pulp molding dies are used to shape and form pulp material into specific product designs. They play a crucial role in determining the final shape, size, and texture of the molded pulp products. Pulp molding dies are essential tools in the production of molded pulp packaging products, offering versatility, customization options, and durability to meet the diverse needs of manufacturers in various industries.

At Agico, we offer a range of pulp molding equipment with diverse molds for producing various pulp molded products. Our company specializes in customizing pulp molding machines to meet individual customer needs. Owning one of our egg tray machines allows you to produce not only egg trays but also a variety of other pulp molded products. Simply by changing the molds of the pulp molding machine, you can produce paper egg cartons, seed trays, shoe trays, industrial package products and more.

Choosing Materials of Pulp Molding Dies

Pulp molding dies are typically made from materials such as aluminum, steel, or composite materials. These materials are chosen for their durability, heat resistance, and ability to withstand the molding process.

Design of Pulp Molding Dies

The design process of pulp molded products encompasses both the structural design of the product itself and the design of the processing mold, which are interdependent and interconnected. Typically, these two designs need to be carried out synchronously, following three general steps and key considerations:

  1. Initially, the product structure is designed, followed by the design of the mold based on the product structure. This sequence is crucial as the mold is responsible for protecting and securing the product, thus its internal dimensions must align with the overall dimensions of the product.
  2. During mold design, the integral mold is first designed, followed by the design of the molding mold. Given the heightened requirements for size control in the later stages of production, particular attention is paid to ensuring precise size control during the shaping process. This entails designing the size of the shaping mold first, with due consideration to the thickness of the pulp molded products. Additionally, provisions must be made for demolding after integration, necessitating the inclusion of a certain gap size. Furthermore, the molding process subjects the formed products to additional pressure, particularly in terms of thickness, prompting a redesign of the molding die based on the size of the shaping die. Typically, considerations regarding the characteristics of the forming mold and process are made with regard to size, such as the thickness of the net covering wire of the forming mold and size shrinkage post-integral heating.
  3. In mold design, the lower mold is prioritized over the upper mold. Generally, the molding lower mold is designed based on the size of the integral upper mold, while the molding upper mold is fabricated by molding the lower mold with epoxy resin. Furthermore, the alignment between the external dimensions of pulp molded products and the internal dimensions of cartons makes it advantageous to first design the lower die.

Different Kinds of Pulp Molds for Pulp Molding Machine

The pulp molding line is an integral part of the recycling industry, capable of producing various products such as egg trays, egg cartons, and fruit trays using waste paper as raw material. By simply changing molds, the same production line can cater to different product demands in the market. Customers have the flexibility to customize molding dies and pulp molding machines according to their specific needs and requirements, providing only the samples of molds they intend to use.

Utilizing paper pulp molding machines helps recycle waste materials and minimizes pollution. Most egg trays are crafted from waste paper, and pulp molding equipment efficiently integrates these materials, reducing resource wastage.

How to Choose Egg Tray Molds?

We are a professional manufacturer specializing in the design and production of complete egg tray production lines. The selection of egg tray molds is crucial within the egg tray production line. To assist our customers in choosing suitable egg tray molds, we typically engage in thorough communication to understand their requirements, especially regarding the local weight range and shape of eggs. For customers with poultry farms, we also consider their daily egg production quantity to match appropriate models and molds. Egg tray molds come in plastic and aluminum variants, and we select the suitable material based on the customer’s budget and production volume to save costs.

If customers are unsure about the mold model, they can simply send us their required egg tray samples, and we will use our 3D scanning system to measure relevant data and create 3D drawings for confirmation. After customer confirmation, we proceed with further mold design, processing, and production. We adhere to strict quality control mechanisms throughout the design and processing stages to ensure that each egg tray mold meets customer requirements. Upon receiving the egg tray molds, we also provide guidance on proper installation and ongoing maintenance to extend the lifespan of the molds.

How to Maintain and Extend the Service Life of Egg Tray Molds?

  • Regular Cleaning: Regularly clean the surface and interior of the egg tray molds to remove impurities and residual pulp, ensuring a smooth surface and preventing corrosion and pulp accumulation.
  • Periodic Inspection: Periodically inspect various components of the molds, especially the mold mesh and mold cavities, to identify problems and promptly repair or replace them to prevent further damage.
  • Proper Usage: Avoid excessive use or overload operations of the molds, and try to avoid impacts or excessive force application to reduce mold fatigue and damage.
  • Maintenance Records: Establish maintenance records for the egg tray molds, recording maintenance time, maintenance content, and issue feedback to promptly identify and resolve potential problems.
  • Operator Training: Provide training to operators on the use and maintenance of egg tray molds, enhancing their awareness and skills in mold maintenance to reduce damage caused by improper operation.

If the egg tray molds are regularly cleaned and well-maintained, the lifespan of aluminum egg tray molds can exceed 15 years.

Egg Tray Molds Making Process

First based on customers’ requirements of pulp molding dies, and consider the load-bearing proportion to design drawings. Materials shall be prepared after the approved drawing for egg tray molds is passed. Then go to processing, first to process egg tray mold frame, including the panel, the bottom plate… then the mold core details processing, and finally assemble.

According to the design drawings of pulp molding dies, the processing master will cut, milling, turning and other processing technologies of raw materials, and process the parts of the mold one by one. It is necessary to ensure the accuracy and surface quality in the processing process to ensure the performance of the mold dies.
