Pelican Products Inc. turned to low pressure structural foam molding to produce this collection of cube-shaped cases in sizes ranging from 18 to 24 inches. These big, watertight, dust-proof, chemical-resistant cases feature detachable steel casters and beefy molded-in handles. Pelican molds the cases from what it calls “an ultra-high-impact-resistant polypropylene.” To make the manufacturing as economical as possible, the company uses a dedicated lean production cell that molds the top and bottom of the case in the same steel tool.
