  • Patent number: 5829615
    Abstract: The invention relates to an equipment case with a metallic, self-supporting casing and an inner frame forming a reception space for equipment and components and which is fixed to the casing jacket by means of vibration-damping elements spaced from the casing. According to the invention a casing jacket comprising a single part is provided and its base and cover surfaces and vertical lateral parts are formed in a bending process. Angle bevels and a circumferential, front and back hollow section are formed on the casing jacket. The angle bevels are used for the vibration-damping reception of the inner frame, whilst the hollow section of the casing jacket, in the same way as an extruded section of the front and/or back cover contribute to the integral construction of the equipment case and to a particularly good accessory adaptation.
