UK Flight Case Manufacture

Flight Case Construction

3D Flight Cases take delivery of their new aluminium extrusions during this December, designed to make flight case construction stronger and lighter. Made from a high grade aluminium billet, once extruded each section is baked in an oven for 24 hours to increase the hardness up to an aircraft grade quality. This extra treatment ensures that during its life on the road it will not dent, snag or burr like conventional aluminium used in flight case manufacturing.

In total, 3D Flight Cases will take delivery of ten new flight case extrusions including sections for 7mm flight cases, 10mm flight cases and 13mm flight cases. Each includes the flight case edging ‘double leg ’ angle, which is designed to allow fixing rivets to pull through the outside aluminium, the case panel material and finally through an inside aluminium ensuring a secure fixing unlike a single leg angle. This extrusion also incorporates a large radius which not only makes it more comfortable to handle the case but also helps reducing burrs during use. Along with each section there is also a new male and female to allow secure lid closure. Finally there is a ‘Lid Maker’ extrusion designed to mate with the 7mm for producing even lighter and smaller cases where needed.

Continuing 3D’s investment in professional flight case design new corner braces and steel corners have been produced to suit the large radius of the aluminium angle.

A Very Happy Bunny

Just received an email from Innes of Peatbog Faeries fame who recently took delivery of one of the new SKB 3i guitar cases.
‘The case arrived today and your right I’m not disappointed. Its just what I’ve been looking for and the G&L fits great. A very happy bunny, thanks’.

Having seen the guys many times at Cambridge Folk Festival over the last 15 years wearing my other hat as ‘crew boss’ for the power and lighting team on the site,  I can assure you along with 10,000 others at the gig that they are a great live band and they have just been announced as a nominee for “Best Live Act” at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2012, having already twice won “Live Act of the Year” at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards.

For more information, photo’s and music samples including The Peatbog Faeries latest album ‘Dust‘ check out there website here.

They’ve taken their own individual brand of Scottish tunes to audiences around the world, from European Festivals, to Asia, Africa, America, Canada and Australia so Innes’s new SKB waterproof guitar case will be fully tested over the coming years.

Take care guys and hopefully catch up again at Cambridge next year.

Peli ISP2 Case

Peli Hardig ISP2 Cases

Shifting loose cargo can slow down your operations and threaten the mission with damaged freight so after acquiring Hardigg Industries, Peli Cases released the ISP2 (Inter-Stacking Pattern) series of shipping containers.

 The new ISP2  containers from Peli virtually eliminate load movement with a unique Inter-Stacking Pattern (ISP). Designed to stay secure in transit, ISP2 Cases are engineered with 10x10cm squared pattern matching the lids with the base. The integrated Peli ISP2 containers squared design works in tandem to lock the cases together in a stack, permits an easy cross-stacking among all models and enhances their rotationally moulded polymer construction’s load bearing properties.

Hardigg Peli ISP2 Container

Standard features of the Hardigg ISP2 containers include an o-ring seal (to ensure that the case stays secure and watertight), reinforced corners and edges (15-20% thicker corners and edges for added protection), patented moulded-in metal inserts with recessed hardware and comfort grip high-impact polymer handles (for easy team lifting). The Peli Hardigg ISP2 case material is a proprietary polyethylene formula that achieves the optimum balance of light weight, panel rigidity and durability.

These flight cases are optimised for most known pallet sizes including the Standard Euro Pallet, the NATO Pallet and 463L Master Pallet, the Peli Hardigg ISP2 containers are available in 64 different case sizes, from 0,018 to 0,576 cubic metres of storage, that can be combined to maximize the total volume of available space in each pallet.

This Peli IPS2 case system allows taller loads that won’t shift or become loose from turbulent air, high seas or dilapidated road conditions.

Storm Cases

Peli Storm Cases

Storm Cases are lightweight, watertight, virtually unbreakable and guaranteed for life, nothing is better at safeguarding your gear against shock, impact, vibration, water, and dust. Inside, multi-layered foam holds your equipment securely in place, while Hardigg’s unique Press & Pull latches keep the case closed even under severe impact – yet open with the press of a button for quick access.

Each Peli Storm Case model also has a permanently attached Vortex® valve, which automatically adjusts air pressure without letting in water or dust. If your gear requires a completely airtight case, a manual pressure relief valve can be attached in place of the Vortex®, ensuring that absolutely nothing gets inside the case until it’s opened.

We also offer a line of Personal Weapons Cases designed exclusively to protect personal firearms. These weapon-specific gun cases provide maximum protection in a lightweight, space-efficient container. Some are designed for multiple weapons, and all include separate compartments for spare magazines, optics, or other accessories. In addition, all Personal Weapons Cases are NTOA Member Tested and Recommended – earning ratings of 4.8 or higher.

Peli Cases

Peli Cases

Peli Protector Cases,produced by Pelican Cases in the USA have been thrown out of helicopters in Iraq, towed along frigid fjords in Norway, and rolled over by SUVs in Tanzania. With only a few scratches to show on the outside, contents are left unscathed. Minor war wounds for major bragging rights. And that is really what it’s all about. Getting your gear from point A to B in the condition it’s meant to be in: intact and functional.

Peli Cases have been tested by several government and private organizations and they have passed the most strict quality tests. They have successfully met many industrial, military and extreme sport requirements with respect to protection against knocks, immersion, humidity, corrosion, stacking and drop resistance.

Peli Protector cases are also “Permanent Packaging Solutions” that have less impact on the environment, while saving money and better protecting merchandise. This way Peli Products are providing their clients with more effective shipping solutions that make the traditional supply chain a little greener.
