Posted 12 April 2019 · Add Comment

Peli UK foam specialists have designed a bespoke packaging solution for a Chinook Helicopter torque maintenance kit which is now in service at RAF Odiham.

The Peli team were asked to provide an alternative solution to replace the existing expensive and inefficient system. Peli UK subsequently delivered a cost efficient solution which was considerably cheaper and two thirds the size of the previous container.

They devised a custom foam insert within a waterproof, wheeled Peli Hardigg case. The bespoke foam insert was designed with pockets to fit the various parts of the kit, whilst load spreaders were included due to the weight of the items.

A Peli 1520 case is included to enable the contents to be sent away for regular re-calibration.

The foam insert also features a laser engraved parts list to provide a description of each item.

The Chinook kit had previously been housed in a special type of container which had a high centre of gravity, causing them to topple over when handled. They were not man portable as they did not have wheels and required a wooden pallet to move them, resulting in significant damage to the container and its contents.
