Success Story: Transport Case for Helicopter Blades Clamp Tool
Client: Department of Defense Contractor
Application: Secure Transport of Aviation Equipment
Case Manufacturer: Pelican
“Simple” and “efficient” are probably not words that come to mind when you imagine the installation and removal of the CH-47 military helicopter blades. But thanks to the incredible helicopter blade removal clamp we recently customized a case for, this tough job has become a lot easier. As you can imagine, a tool like this requires a very large and very sturdy case. However, what you might not know is just how heavy such a large case could get without the ideal configuration and material.
A Pelican Hardigg Rotationally Molded MIL-SPEC outer case was the obvious choice due to Pelican’s unmatched strength-to-weight ratio. Also, because the tool is heavy, we chose an interior foam dense enough to withstand its weight, but supportive enough to protect the tool from jarring and bouncing during transport.
