Amongst other jobs, we have this week manufactured a fitted case that was over 5.5 meters long. It was designed not to flex during transport and had a ‘top hat’ lid for removal by crane. The lid was then secured using specialised fasteners. It was also lined with an MOD approved paper to prevent moisture ingress.
We have just finished some high specification Tongue & Groove cases for a client who ships high end finished machine parts globally. In order to ensure that the good reach their end destination in pristine condition we Tar Line the cases (Defence Standard 81-48). They are then fitted with clamps that we have specifically manufactured for each item. The cases are fitted with clips that can also be padlocked for security.
This week found us packing 15 Tons of Steel for export to the far east. This cast product is very brittle and extreme care was taken to ensure that it was packed securely for its journey. Note the use of Polystyrene to cushion the goods and foil bags to protect against moisture ingress.
This week has seen our staff working both in Middlesbrough as well as London. The Simulator was first loaded in Derby on the Saturday and then travelled to London on Monday morning where it was met by the same team.Here we can see WBC personnel unloading and positioning the Simulator at Clapham Junction Station, for SWR.As you can see with only 20mm clearance it was a case of slow and steady.
This week saw us case pack a valuable shipment of
antique clocks bound for an American auction
The client dropped them off, already packed, and we secured them in
their sea freight case complete with moisture absorbent Silica gel inside
the foil bags. We added a shelf, to the case, to distribute the weight.
