Strict quality control guidelines are followed through out the production and inspection phases. Custom shipping case design is 85% of our business. We also offer a large variety of stock shipping cases in our online store.

Wilson Case Shipping Case Specifications

1. Construction Panels

Wilson LT Reinforced Tri-laminate – 100% recyclable Polypropylene with non-directional cellular center, 7mm, talc-filled. Thermoformed center layer is laminated to outer layer hermetically sealing air loaded cells. When third layer is laminated to the opposite side the resulting three dimensional sheet is stronger and lighter weight than laminated plywood or extruded polyethylene sheets.

We also offer ABS-clad plywood as well as aluminum skinned plywood. These options include a protective covering; .040 ” high impact industrial grade pressure-laminated to 1/4″, 3/8″, or 1/2″ solid-core #1 grade plywood.

 

2. Angle

Extruded aluminum; 6063 alloy; heat-treated to T-6; 1.1875″ ; machine-riveted to case walls every three inches.

 

3. Valance
Exceptionally deep tongue-and-groove closure; extruded aluminum 6063 alloy grade; heat treated to T-5; with oblong channel in goove to secure optional neoprene gasket; both tongue and groove have full inner leg for superior strength.

 

4. Hinge
Stainless steel; continuous piano hinge; riveted through both inner and outer leg of double-walled valance every two inches.
14-Gauge plated steel, stackable (top corners have depression to accept rounded bottom corner for secure nesting when stacked).

 

5.  Ball Corners
14-Gauge plated steel, stackable (top corners have depression to accept rounded bottom corner for secure nesting when stacked).

 

6. Latches
Recessed; plated steel; positive action butterfly twist style. Does not require valance to be broken. The latch spans tongue-and-groove to eliminate dust and moisture and preserve the integrity of the case.

 

7. Handles
Recessed; plated steel; spring loaded 3/4″ diameter rubber grip sleeves. Deeper dish in handle located on lid (when applicable prevents handle from interfering with stacking ability.

 

8. Rivets
Machine-driven; plated steel; spaced a maximum of 3″ apart.

 

9.  Solid Modeling Design & Manufacturing Process – How our custom case design process works
Our engineers use the SolidWorks 3D CAD program to model Wilson cases. This makes it easy for our customers to communicate their product details without having to send in their equipment.  Their engineers send us the following file types: Solidworks, x_t, step and iges.  We plug them into our processes to design a shipping case with precision for their product.  Once the shipping case is designed we send a detailed 3D presentation to our customer so that they can see exactly what their case will look like, down to the placement of the handles and holes. When a design is approved, we take the same files we presented to the customer and convert them to CNC computer control language, which allows us to cut the case materials on our machines, with precision down to the thousandths of an inch.

 

Wilson Case reserves the right to change color shades and case hardware commensurate with ATA-300 specifications without notice.
