A customised flight case for transport or storage?

Custom flightcase

Specialised in flight cases, the mother of all cases. For simple and complex projects, for smaller but certainly for larger quantities.

Every flight case starts from your needs

You tell us your needs and requirements, we design the right flight case for you. Our engineers design the perfect packaging and they are assembled in our production hall by professionals. This makes Faes an ideal partner when it comes to creating successful flightcases.

Customised flight case: 3 types

A flightcase is a box that is very sturdy and solid because of its construction. Faes makes a tailor-made flightcase and therefore has a high degree of flexibility. This does not only apply to the colours, dimensions or materials; but also to the applications. Whether it concerns wheels or transporting 1000 kilos; everything is possible.

The base is the entry-level model of Faes. Reliable and relatively lightweight. This is due to the use of thinner bottom and lid panels and lighter hardware, compared to the Rock version.
Heavyweight or very large, the Rock can handle it all. Suitable for the most demanding applications thanks to even stronger corner profiles and heavier hardware.
Solid is the ideal choice if you are looking for a flight case for frequent transport. It is equipped with 10 mm panels on all sides. The hinges and locks are the same as in the Base version.

Customised flightcase with interior

The custom flight case is also often provided with a custom interior. One time, a bar mounted in the right place is enough to buffer the products that need to be transported, another time, a foam interior is needed to keep small parts in the right place. We provide you with a suitable solution for your product.

Foam is most often used to create customised interiors. In soft foam (Polyurethane) and harder foam (Polyethylene).
LD45 foam is the type of foam that is currently most often used in cleanrooms. For example in the mechatronics industry, because the dense cell structure ensures that dust particles penetrate the foam less quickly.
Heavyweight or very large, the Rock can handle it all. Suitable for the most demanding applications thanks to even stronger corner profiles and heavier hardware.

Intake
Identifying your packaging needs

A case, crate or flight case is so much more than just packaging. More than a casing for your products, equipment or parts. What the ideal packaging is for your company and application depends on countless factors. Our packaging experts will map out your specific requirements during an intake meeting.

Concept
A standard or customised packaging?

Now it is up to us to find the most suitable packaging for you on the basis of the intake. Sometimes, existing packaging from our range will suffice, but sometimes customisation is required or desired. Our advisors will present this to our design office, where designers will translate your requirements into the best solution.

Ontwerp
The first glance at your packaging solution

Are you satisfied with our initial advice and proposal? Then our experienced packaging engineers will get to work on a concrete design for your customised packaging. We have our own in-house design office, which means that we have extensive expertise and short lines of communication. This is how we work together on your packaging solution.

Prototype
Online proofing

Once the products or parts have been measured and the design and drawing have been made, they are presented via an online tool. Via this tool, all project members can place their comments or agree directly. Online proofing is efficient and transparent, and all versions of the design are retained.

Productie
Our craftsmen get to work at our in-house workshop

After approval of the design, the designers convert the drawings into a workshop order. Craftsmen then produce the product based on the production techniques suitable for the application. If desired, our production staff can provide the case with a customised interior and printing.

Service
Advice and full service

After delivery, our service doesn’t just stop. We are always at your disposal if you have any feedback or questions. We offer various services with which we can take your concerns about packaging completely out of your hands. We are also at your service when you have a complex logistical or packaging problem.
