CANNON FALLS, Minn., February 27, 2024 – Gemstar Manufacturing announces the expansion of its Stronghold® hard case line with the introduction of new RoboRack™ Half-Rack Mount Cases. 

New RoboRack cases are military-grade, shock-resistant half-rack cases designed specifically to mount sensitive, electronic components for transport and field use. RoboRack cases protect electronics from physical shock, vibration, moisture, dust and other contaminants in applications such as military, industrial and commercial vehicles, airplanes, railcars and other mobile applications. 

Designed, tested, and manufactured in the United States, these hard cases can be used off-the-shelf or configured as needed for specific equipment. RoboRack cases are being introduced in two half-rack sizes: 5U (available now) and 7U (coming later this spring). New RoboRack cases are manufactured with Gemstar’s proprietary Robomold® manufacturing technology. RoboRack double-walled hard cases are airtight, watertight, and built to withstand years of use and abuse. 

RoboRack Half-Rack cases are manufactured with GSR™ (LLDPE) high-performance resin, heavy-duty latches, rubberized spring-loaded handles, and recessed hardware. They offer stacking compatibility, fully removable lids that hang on the sides, and have a payload of 20 to 150 lbs. 

This military-grade case is designed and tested to meet or exceed MIL-STD 810G and military Long Life Reusable Case (LLRC) standards. RoboRack cases can be customized to meet customer specifications for size, load, and g-rating (g-force). Edge wheels and an extendable handle are standard for additional flexibility in moving electronics. 

“RoboRack cases are the perfect solution to transporting sensitive electronics,” said Kevin Paulson, Director of Product for Gemstar Manufacturing. “Our design controls shock and vibration to ensure that electronics are unharmed and perform as expected upon arrival.” 

Gemstar designs, creates, and tests highly technical solutions to meet any industrial or commercial application. Gemstar is proud to be the first manufacturer in the United States to offer robotic rotational molding. Gemstar’s proprietary Robomold® manufacturing technology provides precision plastic solutions with fully automated capabilities. Robomold technology provides product consistency and repeatability, material control, and superior quality. This technology allows Gemstar to produce cutting-edge plastic solutions, such as multi-layer products not previously available in conventional rotational molding.
