Elitron and Europal Packaging: sustainable creativity takes shape on honeycomb cardboard

At FESPA 2017 Elitron and Europal Packaging join forces to show how digital cutting solutions like Kombo SD Series bring out Beelite’s quality and creative potential.


During FESPA 2017 Elitron’s cutting solutions Kombo SDC+ 3.2 and Kombo TH have been operating on several projects on Beelite like: POP materials, POS displays, and design objects featuring complex cutting lines so that attendees had the chance to assess the overall quality carved out by Elitron digital cutting systems and the creative potential of the media.

The collaboration with the corrugated and honeycomb cardboard producer Europal Packaging, a Belgian company founded in 1947 which started developing visual communication materials like Beelite from 2010, has been specifically arranged to fulfill the ongoing need of optimizing the cutting systems configuration on newly developed materials so that end users are ensured with the utmost finishing quality.
Beelite comes in two different versions: 2D, perfectly suited for light construction and flat creations, and 3D more resilient and aimed at making much more complex designs; it is sold in panels of different sizes and thicknesses. Beelite is 100% recyclable and is made of the union of a core in honeycomb cardboard together with various layers of paper on top. These characteristics, along with a low weight combined with a surprising resiliency, make Beelite easily printable in good quality as well.

On Elitron’s digital cutting solutions it is possible to work on Beelite and getting an above average finishing quality even pushing the cutting table to its maximum performances while operating either tangential cutting with pneumatic blade or 45° V Cut.

The industry of visual communication materials is on an ongoing evolution. Thanks to the widespread adoption of digital printing technologies capable of making highly customized and granular marketing campaigns real and to the growing need for instore UX enhancement, the producers shifted the focus of their research on highly resistant materials on which brand owners can achieve amazing printing quality, come up with highly creative designs and win end customers attention.

Europal comes up with an innovative cardboard party table


A different party table for each occasion. Under this motto, Europal Packaging presents to the market a cardboard party table. Since 2010, the company known for its cardboard packaging production, has put a fixed assortment of honeycomb panels on the market under the brand BEELITE. Through a fully automated process, Europal Packaging has developed a unique technology in order to turn the Beelite panels into finished products.


Using this method, the Beelite party table was introduced to the market earlier this year. The party table is both very light and portable, yet also very stable and strong. Europal Packaging has designed a practical box containing four tables. The all-white party tables are for sale, in sets of four, in all the AVA-shops. Compared to the classic party table, the biggest advantage of the cardboard version is that it can be printed onto. Therefore, you can easily personalise the table with your company logo or family photo. For this purpose, Beelite has established a network of partners (for further information visit: http://beelite.be/nl/partytafel).

Europal Packaging develops and produces innovative transport packaging. The company owned by the West Flanders Dejager family specialises in corrugated cardboard, honeycomb cardboard and corner profiles. The Europal story started in 1947 with a sawmill in Deerlijk and is now led by the second and third generation. Through continuous questioning and regular adjusting to the latest developments, the company grew into an international player with strong West Flanders roots. From the knowledge within Europal additional companies were also founded. Together, they form the coordinating familial D.I. Group (Dejager Investment Group) with headquarters in Kortrijk.

"For us, every day is a day for logistics"


On May 12th, the VIB (Association for Purchasing and Company Logistics) organised its 19th "Day of Purchasing & Logistics". Europal Packaging is pleased that such a momentum occasion exists during which logistics are put in the spotlight. Especially when 'the future' is the central theme. Though of course, one day is not enough.

"For us, the future of logistics and packaging begins again every day. We continuously rethink what we make and how we produce it", Patrick Dejager, CEO of Europal Packaging says.

Innovation in products ...
The most visible adjustments to the company are its products. Long ago, Europal was a sawmill. Later on, crates and pallets were made. Then, the company transformed into an international player on the market for cardboard transport packaging. Even to the extent that Europal now is the only company in Europe that has centralised the production of the three product groups at one site: customised corrugated cardboard packaging, honeycomb cardboard and corner profiles. This one-stop-shop is an advantage for many customers. Today, Europal also produces sheets for the visual communication world. Think of the classic sign and display solutions or POS-materials. Even party tables or table tennis tables are possible. For this purpose, the sister company Beelite was established. Earlier, the in-house knowledge on inbound logistics was privatised and is now a separate company, namely Europal Logistics.

… and in production
There is also a less visible modernisation. Inside of the company is the how and innovation Europal requires to manufacture and supply its products.
