A California-based spinal company relied on flimsy corrugated packaging and commercially-produced dunnage to protect their anatomically-driven instrumentation. They came to Cases By Source to explore more effective alternatives and, in the course of sending their equipment for measurement, experienced first-hand proof of their need for cases: The tools were damaged in transit.
To protect the client’s sensitive equipment, we suggested a durable but portable case that would guarantee protection and still offer the aesthetics of a sales demo kit. The Pelican 1510 Carry-On Case pairs durable, lightweight construction with a travel-friendly design that meets FAA carry-on size regulations—a perfect solution for this client’s needs.
Using our sophisticated structural design tools, we measured each piece of equipment in order to determine the most sensible layout for the custom interior. We then created 3D computer models of the instruments and proposed interior to provide the customer with a quick snapshot of the case before production commenced. For this client, we fabricated a closed-cell cross-linked, routed-foam custom insert to secure the items and display them in an efficient order inside the watertight, crushproof and dustproof case. This foam is available in a variety of densities with rich color saturations. For brand recognition and informational purposes, we added a scratchproof, personalized label to the exterior and a literature pouch was secured in the lid.View Other Related Case Studies
A specialist on active duty for the National Guard Security Force Platoon, wanted to custom build a “Combat Crewman Camera System” for mounting on armored military tactical vehicles and use in various missions and training procedures. He came to us with a napkin sketch and a fixed budget.
We chose the watertight, crushproof and dustproof Pelican 1490 for its durable construction and locking latches that would ensure a tight closure during transit and not disturb the top-mounted cameras. We also designed a custom foam interior shaped to secure the many components of the client’s creative AV system.
The project was a collaborative effort: We engineered the custom foam interior to meet the client’s specifications for the delicate audio and visual components. He did the rest: He mounted multiple XLR connectors on the case and added handles for immobilization during transit and to allow him to open the case without disturbing the camera positions. He also installed several camera pedestal mounts on the case for maximum visibility at a wide range of angles and added other modifications to protect the case from moisture.
To complete the system, the client purchased an Otter Waterproof Case (OC-1000) and converted it into an SD card holder. He also customized a Pelican 1400 (PC-1400) for use as a support case. It stores the rest of the camera system parts, including the mounting brackets, the Otter case with the SD cards, and the camera pedestal extension mounts.View Other Related Case Studies
A leading aerospace company approached Source looking for a reusable solution for transporting 70-pound airplane brakes. Their previous shipping solution consisted of stray, makeshift, and leftover boxes with spray-in foam.
The client wanted a case that would not only secure and protect the delicate but weighty equipment, but one that would also reinforce corporate identification. Our ATA SpectraCase with a custom foam insert provided the durability and customization they sought.
We designed a custom-fabricated ATA Case with plywood laminated to ABS. The case features spring-loaded recessed handles, a fully removable lid for easier lifting and full access to the brakes, reinforced corners for protection during the shipping cycle, a stackable design for convenient storage and transport, and a silk-screened logo and custom color ABS panels for brand identification and reinforcement. The interior was engineered with durable polyethylene foam ergonomically designed with four cutouts that allow for two-person access to the weighty and sensitive materials. At the client’s request, we also added an instructional label on the lid’s interior and affixed it to the foam with an aggressive adhesive to withstand handling.View Other Related Case Studies
