Raw material needed


Supported Cup Dimension:

Top Diameter: min 45--max 110mm

Bottom Diameter: min 35--max 80mm

Height: Minimum 40mm---Maximum 130mm

Simply saying a cup holds 3-12 oz (matter of fact you can make different sizes with different molds)

raw Material: 1. PE coated paper reel (For cup bottom)

2. Die cutting paper (For cup body)

For cold drink recommend to use PE coated paper for both cup body and bottom


The machine Dimension is 2500 by 12000 by 1400, pretty handy to fit in your extended backyard or a small godown facility, the machine use 4.5 KW of power at 3-phase power line.

Standard cup use 170-420 gsm, single or double PE coated paper, and please be noted for this proposal, you will need to buy “die cut” paper, already cut and printed for the cup body, the machine only weld the cup body to bottom.




Product Price: Standard paper cup: about 0.015$/Pc (minimized)

per day production: 50,000units (assume 5 gram per cup)

Sales per day : 1,000 USD

Material cost: 1500$ (DDP most major port) per ton (average cost for PE coated and uncoated)

material per day cost: 0.3 x 1500 = 450$ (maximized)

Production cost: assume 20% of sales = 200$ (Max)

Minimum Profit: 1000 - 450 -200 = 350 USD

That about 2,400 USD per week or 10,000USD per Month!
