The newly-created TBX for outdoor pursuits
A Lancashire-based rotational moulding firm has helped design and create a robust luggage item designed for use in the harshest conditions.
Excelsior Roto Moulding Ltd., based in Bury, worked alongside outdoor pursuits company, Adventure Orb Limited, to design and manufacture the main body of the ‘Tough Box’ (TBX), a waterproof, corrosion resistant and shatterproof luggage storage box.
Unique in its combination of features, one of the TBX’s greatest assets is the single piece composition of its roto-moulded polyethylene main body, which, in the absence of joins, is waterproof and able to float.
Excelsior was awarded the contract for the TBX due to its in-house CAD design facility as well as its manufacturing capabilities. It was able to work with Adventure Orb to develop the initial concept into a valid design, and then translate the design into a 3D model.
“This was a tremendously engaging project for Excelsior, where we relish a challenge,” commented Managing Director, Giles Fielding.
“It was particularly gratifying to be able to handle the job in-house, from concept to production, and of course this meant that we were able to do the work efficiently and cost-effectively.”
