TR-50 Trayformer

Exceptional Performance For High Speed Applications

In addition to forming trays that are excellent for shipping bottled or canned beverages, the TR-50 is perfect for rapidly producing bakeable cardboard trays or corrugated baking trays suitable for bakeries, pâtisseries, or confectionery shops.


Small & Scaling Businesses

Producing a good, square tray is usually a top priority in an end-of-line packaging process. Many businesses starting out or ramping up often rely on manual assembly for constructing their trays. However, the strain of manual production can eventually become too much. To scale your business smoothly, you need to shift from people to machines to increase the pace and precision of your operations.

Adding a tray former like the TR-50 to your packaging line can ease you into automation, and save you time and money in the long run. The initial investment into this kind of automation is often quickly offset by the efficiency it provides, making it accessible for companies of all sizes. Also with a Wayne TR-50 Trayformer, you can ensure that you will have:

  • Long term durability, reliability and performance
  • Exceptional package quality even with sub optimal materials

Bakeries & Food Companies

We have formed an exciting new partnership with Innovative Fiber to develop quality packaging solutions that focus on performance and sustainability for food packaging.

Unlike aluminum, foam, plastic, and other less sustainable products, our joint solution enables food producers to use sustainable packaging products, such as CorrBake™ and CorrFresh™, as part of their end of line processing. Together, Wayne Automation and Innovative Fiber can help you create a solution that’s economical, customizable, and environmentally friendly for your consumable goods.


High Performance without Compromise

High speed is nothing without quality and reliability. The TR-50 has it covered. The machine is based around the highly successful and field-proven TR-30. To achieve consistent high speed performance, the machine utilizes a mechanical motion pick-and-place magazine and transporter system, providing smooth continuous paper handling even at its maximum speed.

Simple, Repeatable Changeovers

The TR-50 tray forming mandrel is quickly and easily removed and changed to prepare for an alternate tray size. The machine comes standard with toolless adjustments at changeover points. Optional scaling and hand wheel and counter packages allow you to configure the machine to meet the needs of your line.

Safety Is at the Core of Every Wayne Machine

Standard on the TR-50 are Lexan doors equipped with Allen Bradley anti-intrusion switches. Together, these provide effective guarding as well as an unobstructed view of machine function. The vertical traveling forming head is equipped with an Amlok rod clamp safety system that positively locks the motion of the head when the machine has been stopped or turned off. Remote emergency and cycle stop stations are also located around the machine for quick and easy access.

We work to ensure all our recommendations are the perfect fit for our customer’s specific application. For pricing or other information on the TR-50, please contact us for a quote.

Sierra Nevada Gets A Case Sealer And A Partner

When Sierra Nevada Brewing needed to rapidly assemble uneven cases, but couldn’t risk excessive downtime or redundant machines, they relied on Wayne Automation’s reputation for unmatched quality and dedicated service.


Sierra Nevada Brewing needed an efficient and rugged system to facilitate shipping out of their Mills River location.


Wayne Automation supplied a case erector and sealer, basing the setup off Wayne’s work at their sister brewery in Chico, CA.
