How a tray former works

A tray erector, also called tray former, is used to shape trays into their final form. The forming is done from a flat shape. Blanks are picked up directly from the machine’s storage magazine.

Several options for the choice of materials are available. These include corrugated, micro-fluted or solid carton. However, frequently found in the food industry, they can be formed from a reel of aluminium, plastic (polystyrene, polypropylene, …) or wood.

The creation of trays can be achieved through different processes:

– Gluing (cardboard boxes)
– Snap-in (cartons)
– Ratcheting (cardboard boxes)
– Pressure (aluminium)
– Thermoforming (creation of plastic trays)
