When you’ve dedicated a significant amount of money and resources to developing a robotic system, the last thing you want to worry about is having your machine damaged in transit. Transporting robots can be a risky endeavor. If your robotics shipping crate is not built to withstand rough handling, you could end up damaging delicate components such as sensors, motors, LCDs, or micro controllers. Ensure your robotics shipping case is up to the task of protecting fragile equipment and order a custom robot crate from Wilson Case. We have experience designing tough shipping cases for everything from surgical systems to telepresence robots. You can browse some of the cases we’ve built and request a similar design. Or work with us to design a custom robot case from the ground up.
Why Choose Wilson Case for Robotics Shipping Cases?
We’ve been designing custom shipping cases for over 30 years and have built robot crates for clients such as Medtech Surgical, Concept Systems, and MagneMotion. We understand the biggest challenges you face when you need to ship a robot, and we address those challenges in our design process.
For example, we can add a ramp and guide rails to your case to make it easier to load and unload a large and heavy robot. We can develop a case with foam-lined compartments—including a compartment for a heavy battery—when you need to protect your robot’s sensitive components. If you’ll be transporting robots from a warehouse, we can add our RamGuard plates to your case to prevent accidental forklift damage.
We don’t believe in “one size fits all” at Wilson Case, and we don’t take shortcuts when it comes to designing your robotics shipping case. We’ll make sure we fully understand your cargo and shipping challenges so that we can provide a case with all the features necessary to make transporting robots simple.
How We Design and Construct Robot Cases
To start our design process, we’ll talk to you about the robot you need to ship, and the case features you anticipate needing. We’ll then ask you to send us a blueprint-like file for your robot so that we can tailor the case to its cargo, without you having to send the actual robot to us. From there, we’ll use SolidWorks, a 3D CAD program, to design the case. We’ll send the finalized design file, which lets you see detailed renderings of your robot crate, to you for approval.
With your approval, we’ll start fabricating your robot case in our workshop. All cases are assembled by our skilled manufacturing team, using technology that allows us to cut materials with accuracy to the thousandth of an inch. We’re so confident in the quality of our custom-made robot crates that we offer a lifetime warranty.
