Tray Formers


BPDM stocks a wide variety of new & used Tray Formers customized for specific applications and requirements in all industries.


Tray Formers work in a very similar way to Box Formers, but instead of an enclosed container they form trays that are open at the top. Tray Formers take flat-packed cardboard to form trays of many different shapes and sizes using either mechanical pin and dome systems, vacuum-assisted systems or a combination of both. Trays are typically sealed using glue.


Tray Packers are widely used in virtually any industry for automated drop loading and hand packing operations. They are used to form trays, cases and boxes for the food, beverage, personal care and household care industries. These machines can be applied to pack bottles, jars, cans, cartons, pouches, bags and much more.

Many times tray forming functions are performed as part of a larger integrated machine such as wrap around tray packers, end-load tray former packers, intermittent motion vertical mandrel type tray former packers and even larger scale machines which tray form, pack and bundle all in one machine.
