Foam packaging plays a part in Bloodhound project

MSA Foams PREVIEW EDIT_tmbSpecialising in the design and manufacture of protective packaging, MSA Foams, part of the Peli Group, produces foams that protect components or delicate equipment. Designing foam inserts that are cut to size for individual tool kits has been part of the business for over 20 years. The company is delighted to have been chosen to provide tool control for the Bloodhound SSC supersonic car engineering project. The vital tools for this record breaking attempt on the world land speed record are stored and transported in foam from MSA.

Inserts organise tools efficiently and, using coloured foam, ensure missing items are easily identified, eliminating the risk of foreign object damage. Durable custom foam ensures tools are secured in position and fully protected in transit.

There is a wide range of returnable packaging and protective/presentation cases available. The sales presentation cases have a professional finish, with branding enhanced through corporate colours. Logos can also be laser-engraved with intricate detail in the foam.

The stand at this year’s Northern Manufacturing show showcases the various colours and foam densities available. The in-house design team has created the stand to demonstrate the product range, the design service and manufacturing capabilities to exhibition visitors. The separate panels interlock neatly using jigsaw tabs for the visible joints of the wall’s panels, showing the precision of the foam cutting and finish, in addition to strengthening the connection between the stand panels.

Many features of the stand, such as a complex water-jet cut map of the UK, showing the areas of the business development team, to the laser engraved, precision-cut Aztec design, demonstrate the cutting technology at the 31,000 sq ft facility.
