One of the great things about technological development within the flight cases industry, is how far we have come from the very first suitcases and small flight cases. Whether you’re looking for a small aluminium flight case, or a larger plastic shipping container, we are sure to have exactly what you need here at Hofbauer. Today we’re going to focus on four great benefits that you can gain from our range of lightweight cases.

Easy to Manoeuvre

As stated, we have come a long way from the days of dragging around heavy suitcases without any wheels! These days, wheels are a given, but having a lightweight case can be another revelation when it comes to transporting your equipment. Lightweight luggage means that it is much easier to manoeuvre, whether you’re rolling your cases through an airport, carrying it onto a plane, or lifting it off the carousal on arrival at your destination.

Here at Hofbauer, customers come to us for many different purposes, with one common goal in mind: to find the perfect case. Our speciality is creating extrusion blow moulded cases through employing a double-wall construction. Today we’re going to focus on the category of shipping containers, shining a spotlight on their history, their benefits, what kind of shipping cases we supply, and how you can customise your purchase.


Shipping cases were first designed by airline packaging engineers, and became known as ATA cases after the specification category. These cases were manufactured to withstand a minimum of 100 round-trips. You may have also heard the terms transit cases or flight cases, which are also other names for shipping cases. The first shipping cases were constructed in order to protect musical instruments, motion picture equipment and audio and lighting equipment. However, these days they can be used for a variety of applications where any sensitive equipment requires the safe transportation between different location, especially where items may be handled roughly by baggage-handling staff.

Here at Hofbauer, we specialise in providing our customers with the most robust options when it comes to cases, which is why we offer a wide range of Pelican cases, otherwise known as Peli cases. The brand known as Pelican was founded in 1976, and the Peli brand extended from this when the business grew into the European market in 1997. The brand offers a distinctive case that is incomparable to others of its kind.

What is a Peli Case?

Since its inception, the Peli Case has become known for its unique brand of plastic-injection moulded technology. This enables the cases to offer the highest level of protection, including numerous benefits that make it built to protect. In general, you can expect these cases to be strong, with high-impact resistance, dust protection, and chemical resistance. They also benefit from a IP67 level of water resistance, which translates to the ability to be dropped into water a meter deep for half an hour without it impacting on the contents. This is indicated by the number 7, and the number 6 indicates that it offers protection from dust. Read more...

All About Our Cases with Wheels

It may come as a surprise to you that it wasn’t until the 1970s that we began putting wheels on cases. Despite the wheel being around for thousands of years, it was Bernard D. Sadow who came up with the idea of adding wheels to suitcases. It was finally made popular when American retailer Macy’s placed an order. It took two years for the idea to become patented, and the resistance has been put down to a culture of machismo. Thankfully, here at Hofbauer, we have plenty of cases with wheels. Read on to find out more about our range.

Quality is Key

As with all our products, we aim to offer the best quality going, and that’s no different with our extensive range of wheeled cases. We pride ourselves on delivering extremely strong and durable cases that will ensure you get your money’s worth, able to use them time and time again.
