A customized protection !
 25 Août 2014

In May 2013 began the collaboration between JAM&Ry and the Packaging Department of CELABOR, in the framework of a « Chèque Technologique » (www.ct.innovons.be).
 
JAM&RY (www.jamry.be), young company located in Liège which was founded in 2011 under the leadership of Catherine Jamar and her husband Luc Mairy, offers various solutions for customised wedging and protection of items during transport, shipping and handling.
 
The company has especially developed a cardboard corner protection : the Elastocoin (www.facebook.com/elastocoin), which received the Greener Packaging Award 2013. The Elastocoin is expandable in width thanks to its accordion structure with 2 elastic bands. Therefore, it can protect the corners of panels having a thickness from 20 to 100 mm against impacts.
 
This Elastocoin has several advantages: it is convenient, can be set up easily and quickly, is recyclable and customizable.
 
JAM&RY appealed to CELABOR for help to expand the range of products (more fragile items) which can be protected by the Elastocoin. So, we developed and offered several new cardboard prototypes to JAM&RY.
 
These prototypes were designed using ArtiosCad software and made by a cutting table. Drop tests were performed on them to simulate the shocks, impacts, during transport and handling. So, the performance of the various developed prototypes was assessed.
 
After several meetings with JAM&RY, we selected and perfected some prototypes and finally optimized a prototype which showed very promising results in terms of protection.
 
This last prototype is a cardboard reinforcement which has an accordion structure and can be added to the Elastocoin according to customer needs in terms of protection.
 
The system composed of Elastocoin and cardboard reinforcement gives panels a 10 times greater resistance to impacts. The cardboard reinforcement itself increases the resistance by 5 compared to the Elastocoin alone.
 
Therefore the project has just ended on a very positive note!
