Aerospace Fabrication is an innovative manufacturer of Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) Blankets and associated passive thermal control parts for aerospace and cryogenic applications, as well as inflatables, specialty soft goods, acoustic panels, and supporting materials. Founded in 1999 and operating out of Farmington, MN, they are leader in their product categories, with some of their work currently employed on active space stations, satellites, and other aerospace equipment.
Aerospace Fabrication was in need of a custom, modular shipping and storage solution to house an entire satellite program’s worth of MLI to their customers, a solution that could work within a cleanroom production facility.
Packnet worked with the engineers at Aerospace Fabrication to design a custom ATA case solution, complete with varying heights and drawers for accommodating the project-specific product loads needed by the end aerospace manufacturer.
The project scope and resulting case design had some last-minute changes, which required quick-thinking and engineering support from the Packnet team, all delivered fast enough to meet existing production timelines and commitments.
“Packnet’s support was great!”, reports Aerospace Engineer David Oberg, who worked hand-in-hand with the Packnet team. “We went through several design iterations for the box, and Packnet was able to make adjustments for us as we needed them and still deliver the boxes in time for their use,” the result of a true collaboration between Packnet’s packaging experts and Aerospace Fabrication’s expert product team.
