Our design team work together with you to understand your requirements from the outset, so you get the right solution. A collaborative approach ensures the most successful outcome. Using diverse sector knowledge built up over 20 years, our expert team of designers take time to review your brief and specifications, asking the right questions to explore and understand your exact requirements.
3D CAD files of your equipment are the best starting point for a transit case design. STEP files are preferred, followed by IGES as they can be imported quickly and easily into Creo, Barum and Dewar's 3D CAD modelling design software. Our designers will create apertures in foam, fixing points on interface plates or any other feature required to safely store and transport contents. If client 3D CAD data is available it can be assembled into the design to create a virtual prototype and realistically visualise how the final solution will appear.
Barum & Dewar have access to sophisticated shock analysis software. This can be employed to calculate the optimum solution to protect very sensitive equipment from shock and vibration inputs. These containers will employ wire shock mounts to protect equipment. For foam designs cushion thicknesses can be calculated to reduce the shock level seen by contents to a minimum against a selected drop height.
From large satellite containers to foam inserts, quality is central to everything we manufacture. Developed with you, our proven 3D CAD designs provide the data for all our manufacture. Foam cushions, large aluminium panels, welded steel frameworks all have their component parts CNC cut from CAD data ensuring accuracy. These components are carefully assembled and tested to exacting standards.
Barum & Dewar is able to create bespoke foam inserts for any requirement. Foam insert CAD models created during the design process are digitally exported and directly used to program computer numerically controlled (CNC) foam cutting machines. The machines accurately follow paths and profiles from the CAD data to ensure final inserts match the intended design exactly. Multi-head machines are used to increase productivity further, before dispatch inserts are cleaned, heat sealed and bonded into cases where required and finally quality inspected.
