BESPOKE PACKAGE DESIGN AND ENGINEERING

When equipment failure is not an option, where preventing a single damaged item could avert significant costs or even stop potentially disastrous knock-on downstream failures, the importance of adequate protective packaging cannot be understated.

The exacting protection of a bespoke protective packaging solution provides immediate assurance and peace of mind that only a genuine Pelican Advanced Case Solution can provide, whilst the investment pays off repeatedly whenever the consignment leaves the care of the owner and is handled by others and/or exposed to the elements.

Advanced Case Solutions are the embodiment of Pelican-Trimcast Advanced Case Centre proficiencies across materials science, packaging engineering, project management and manufacturing. As the inventors of the industry standard cushioning curve formula, innovators in case design and experts in protecting high-tech military equipment - few challenges are beyond our capabilities. Our products have protected the most sensitive, state-of-the-art technologies deployed around the globe under the most exacting conditions by military, private sector, and industrial, commercial and emergency services customers. Pelican are the experts at Mission Critical success.


Custom Case Engineering

Only Pelican-Trimcast™ Advanced Case Centre offers every customer the optimised global resources of the world leaders in injection and roto-molded case bespoke design and manufacturing capabilities. The resulting ability to respond with speed and agility benefits every Advanced Case Solutions customer, whether requiring one unique case solution or thousands delivered worldwide. Every facet of customisation from scoping works, design, fabrication, prototyping, testing, full production and logistics is handled within a comprehensive system to assure that failure is not an option. This unique approach brings a global presence to a regionalised dynamic to meet any custom solution requirement.


Custom Sizes

Size does matter. A case too large adds considerable recurring cost from day one. A case that is too small often doesn’t provide sufficient protection against the rigors of transport. Therefore for mission success the right size case is of critical importance. If we can’t find the right case within our standard range of 500+ sizes, Pelican-Trimcast can build a custom case size to suit any application.


FOUR STAGE CUSTOMISATION

Single-source innovation, experience and coordination

Pelican-Trimcast Advanced Case Solutions™ are the result of a multi-disciplinary, four-stage process. Working closely with the customer, Pelican’s engineers customise every aspect of the protective system from shock and vibration attenuation to impact mitigation, liquid or fine dust ingress, or chemical interference, based on an analysis of usage and environmental characteristics developed with the customer. Pelican’s team has long-term design experience in everything from simple foam cushions to complex fabricated tailored structures for use in the most diverse shipment, storage, and usage conditions imaginable - including military deployments – plus extreme environments from desert to polar expeditions. From deck-mounted equipment, bezel-mounted electronics, integrated exhaust fans and airconditioners, to cases with multiple collars and access points - no case requirement is beyond Pelican’s capabilities.

We control every stage of the process to ensure integrated performance of your part and our protective solution, from interior stabilisation to exterior hardware. Investing in an Advanced Case Solution ensures your operations will not fail, whether it’s lives or livelihoods on the line.
