Wayne corrugated tray formers deliver powerful solutions for manufacturers looking to enhance their end-of-line processes. The TR-50 Trayformer is capable of assembling over 15 unique tray styles at up to 55 trays per minute, allowing you to choose the best packaging for your process every time. This makes this model the ideal choice for performance-minded packers large and small.

Alternatively, Wayne’s WR-25TR Tray Former is a model optimized for flexibility and size efficiency. A modular system allows manufacturers to incorporate a tray-packing module into a smaller footprint, all while handling both glue and fold-over interlocking (FOIL) trays. Assembling up to 25 trays per minute, the model is the ideal choice for small operations looking to enhance their process with limited space.

For manufacturers needing to pack their product in less conventional sizes and shapes, Wayne has answers too. The CPT-25 Corner Post Trayformer provides precision folding and handling for display trays, with custom mandrels for different post types depending on your needs. Wayne’s JTF-10 Trayformer incorporates a pallet handling system into the design, accommodating the needs of extra large trays.

Whatever your application, Wayne Automation has an automatic tray former that exceeds expectations.


Wayne machines are not only versatile, they are also highly efficient. Even complex, unusual tray shapes can be produced at 50 trays per minute. The ability to handle bulk units of unfolded trays means less storage use, less downtime, and a better environment for operators. Finally, our machines offer simple, tool-free changeover, simplifying the process, and saving valuable time and resources.
