Complex Custom Case Design by South-Pak

At South-Pak, Inc. we are specialists in design. We use the most advanced tools available and the most intensive techniques to design products that protect for a life time.

Our team of experts construct cases that are purpose specific meaning you will get a product that is specialized to your needs. For example, we used our CAD processes to design a case and case interior for fuel pump accessories.

Before South-Pak developed and delivered it’s innovative solution, the customer had equipment in three separate cases. This caused logistical problems and was just a big headache for the firm.

At South-Pak, we were able to get all the equipment from the three cases into just one case. We were thus able to make the equipment easily transportable without sacrificing a high level of protection.

How Researchers Protect Their Equipment in the Arctic Seas

Posted in: Solutions
The Miracle of Protective CasesImage of diver holding a carrying case that is climate controlled in freezing water.

Diver wearing layers and layers needs no extra protection for his climate sealed carry case.

How do the world’s leading scientists take their irreplaceable research equipment through harsh environments? Mission ready protective cases prepared by us at South-Pak!

Carrying around expensive and delicate equipment is a challenge anywhere but it is possibly the greatest challenge for researchers working at our planet’s polar ice caps. At these locations, harsh weather can appear out of nowhere with possibly deadly force. And even when the weather is relatively clear, the “normal” conditions of the working environment does not allow any technological equipment or even human skin to last very long. For this reason, researchers wear layers and layers of protection and equipment is placed in protective hard carry cases.

This way, the equipment is protected without compromising the mobility of the technology.

Equipment such as tools used to record data, communicate data, and life-saving emergency response kits are protected by temperatures that would otherwise instantly freeze and ruin the equipment. Even in diving situations, insulated and pressurized cases allow divers to keep their critical equipment with them.

Often, protective cases will be custom made for researchers. This is done because equipment isn’t made to be square and isn’t made for the case. So foam and plastic fabrication is used to house the equipment within the case. Often, wiring and hardware will also be setup within the case. As a result, what looks like a briefcase is transformed into a fully functional technological device that researchers operate by simply opening the case and using a display and hardware such as buttons, levers, and controls.

Our company, South-Pak, produces such specialized protective carry cases that are custom made for clients including government agencies like NASA as well as publicly traded companies like GE. Sometimes, especially when we work with high-tech communications firms, we protect key infrustructure from very harsh environments.

The key when conducting such manufacturing is to know how different case exteriors such as our innovative Plasti-Clad material stand up to harsh environments. We carry out a battery of tests on our products to ensure the supreme level of protection that they provide. South-Pak is also the Southeast distributor for mission ready SKB cases. These cases are built to survive the harshest environments, including ice diving near the south pole.

What to do when your technology is breaking on the job

Posted in: Solutions

These days, barely anyone carries a cell phone without a case. So, why should your employees and staff be carrying much more critical equipment without the proper case and protection?

If your business does a lot of on the field work and you are constantly replacing your technology, identifying the problem can save your business a lot of money. You don’t need us to tell you that, but have you considered that the problem could be the way your technology is being carried and transported rather than the reliability of the gadget itself?

With our custom cushioned soft cases, you can stop replacing your technology and your expensive equipment. Contact us and we’ll prepare a custom solution that better protects your equipment.

Not a single unit has broken in the field since we provided our custom made soft cases. The savings are tremendous, and always growing.

If your business’s technology is breaking on the job, be sure to collect the data and identify the source of the problems. Is the manufacturer of your technology at fault for not preparing rigid hardware, or can a more affordable solution be applied to the exterior of your technology? Sometimes, all your tech needs is a case.

A custom case can be made to exact specifications and to exact requirements. If you think your gadget or technology is somehow special and would not work in a case, we would love the challenge.

How We Transform Outdated Cases and Transform them to Save You Money

Posted in: Featured Client

South-Pak specializes in case re-works. We take your old out dated shipping and travel cases and modify them to bring them back to life so that you don’t have to spend the money to buy entirely new cases. It’s just one of the many ways South-Pak works to add value to your business.

For instance, we have one customer that already owned roto-molded shipping containers. After 20 years, the customer’s equipment changed and the cases were no longer fit for the job.

So we reworked the foam solution and took care of all of the production needs. We updated the setup of the case and allowed him to use the updated foam partitioning to protect his new updated year.

Obviously, this saved the business a lot of money making both us and the client very happy. Here’s a picture of the production:
