The Need for an Electronic Case

July 24th, 2015

When you have electronic equipment to ship from one destination to another, it is essential to take special precautions to protect your equipment. While many believe that a regular case is enough for shipping their electronic equipment, they fail to realize the risk they are placing their equipment in.

When you ship electronic equipment, whether it is for military, medical, or other uses, you must protect not just the exterior of the equipment, but the interior as well. The interior of your electronic equipment is made of highly sensitive wires and electrons that allow it to function properly. Without the inner workings, your electronic equipment could malfunction or not work at all. When you need electronic equipment for military or medical needs, there is never time for malfunctioning equipment, which is why your electronic equipment should be shipped in a custom electronic case in the first place.
Electronic-Cases
A custom electronic case is created to protect your specific equipment during transportation. Through integration designs and custom cushion inserts, your equipment will be protected from even the harshest conditions. An aluminum case with a tight seal will help protect the exterior of the electronic equipment as well as keep out water, dust, and dirt that could cause serious damage to your equipment. Custom cushion inserts will help protect your electronic equipment in a number of different ways. The cushions will first help to keep your equipment organized, which will help make set up upon arrival easy. The cushions will also help to regulate the internal temperature of the case to keep your equipment in proper working order. The cushions will also help absorb any shocks caused by sudden movement, protecting the interior of your electronic equipment.

At Packaging Strategies Incorporated, we create custom aluminum cases to protect the important equipment held inside. We know how essential a custom aluminum case is when transporting equipment for military and medical purposes. We pride ourselves on creating cases that meet every need of our customer while also exceeding their expectations, at a price that is affordable and reasonable. We are also proud of our service to every arm of the Department of Defense and United States military.

Materials to Use for your Custom Case

July 10th, 2015

PSI Custom Case Materials
When it comes to producing a strong and reliable custom case for your equipment, there are certain characteristics to look for. Your custom case should be sturdy, airtight, watertight, and created with quality materials. While some materials are ideal for creating a custom case, other materials should be avoided when making a new case. Here is a closer look into custom case materials.

Custom case materials to avoid when creating a new case include:

1. Plywood- While plywood may seem like a sturdy and environmental friendly option; this material will fail to provide the strength and durability needed for your custom case. Plywood will become weak and vulnerable to mold and rot should it travel to a humid area. Damage to the case could also allow moisture into the case, causing serious damage to your equipment.
2. Plastic- Plastic is a very commonly used material in many popular industries; however it should not be on your list for custom case materials. Plastic becomes vulnerable when exposed to extreme materials, meaning it won’t be able to hold up in extreme conditions. Heat will cause the case to melt while cold will cause the case to crack.
3. Wood Laminates- Similar to plywood, these materials are unable to handle extreme travel conditions. Wood laminates cannot stand up to the changes in humidity, temperature, and overall travel conditions, leaving your expensive and essential equipment vulnerable to irreplaceable damage.

Custom case materials to reach for when creating a new case include:

1. Aluminum- When it comes to quality custom case materials, aluminum is the best way to go. Aluminum is sturdy enough to withstand travel conditions without the fear of a crack or chip in the case. Aluminum can also withstand changes in temperature and humidity while never leaving your equipment vulnerable.
2. Foam Interiors- If you want to increase the protection surrounding your equipment, choose custom foam interiors to fit into your aluminum case. Foam interiors will keep your equipment safe from shock vibrations while also helping to monitor temperature.

At Packaging Strategies Incorporated, we create custom aluminum cases to protect the important equipment held inside. We know how essential a custom aluminum case is when transporting equipment for military and medical purposes. We pride ourselves on creating cases that meet every need of our customer while also exceeding their expectations, at a price that is affordable and reasonable. We are also proud of our service to every arm of the Department of Defense and United States military.

Celebrating Independence Day

July 2nd, 2015

Independence Day

This Friday marks the 239th birthday of the United States of America. July 4th is the most celebrated day in America, as it highlights the independence of the United States from Britain. As Americans from all across the country begin to celebrate the holiday with parades, cookouts, and fireworks, here are a few things to remember about the holiday!

  1. Declaration of Independence- Independence Day is the celebration of the signing of the document known as the Declaration of Independence. This document, signed by Robert Livingston, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Thomas Jefferson, declared America’s independence from Britain.
  2. Federal Holiday- Although Independence Day had been celebrated since 1776, Congress didn’t declare the day a federal holiday until 1938.
  3. Not the Accurate Date- While we continue to celebrate our Independence on July 4th, the truth still remains that the actual time of independence came at least a month later. The Declaration of Independence was fully signed by each member of the Continental Congress until August 2nd and didn’t reach King George the Third until August 30th.
  4. Death of Two Men- On July 4th, 1826, 50 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson passed away within hours of one another.
  5. Fireworks- The tradition of fireworks on July 4th began around the 19th century when citizens began to light and set off left over explosives from the war. Today, over 14,000 fireworks displays are ignited each year for the holiday.

Packaging Strategies Incorporated enjoys celebrating the independence of the United States of America each year. Our company is proud to continue our partnership with every branch of the United States Armed Forces who continue to protect the independence of the American people.

Avoiding Custom Case Mistakes

June 26th, 2015

Custom Case Mistakes

When you have expensive and sensitive equipment to travel for military or medical purposes, you are in need of custom cases. However, with so many custom cases to choose from, people tend to make mistakes when purchasing their custom cases. Here are some of the common custom case mistakes made by those who are making purchases.

Custom Case Mistake #1

One of the main mistakes made when purchasing custom cases is the lack of customization for an attempt of a lower price. Many believe that in order to have a case customized for their specific job needs, the price for the case would increase to a point of breaking a budget. However, this is not always the case. When you choose a custom case company such as Packaging Strategies Incorporated, you are able to have your case customized at a price that fits within your budget. This also means that you won’t sacrifice the overall quality of your case for a lower price.

Custom Case Mistake #2

When looking for a custom case, many pick a case with the best case scenario in mind. This means they believe their case will be transported in ideal conditions with minimal to no change in travel conditions. However, when you choose a custom case, you must consider every possible scenario that could take place during transportation. This includes:
1. Stacking
2. Altitude Changes
3. Collisions with Vehicles
4. Collisions with Cases
5. Weather Changes
6. Poor Handling
7. Chemical Exposure
8. Water Exposure

Custom Case Mistake #3

One of the final mistakes made when purchasing custom cases for your equipment is choosing cheap or ineffective materials. While plastic or wood may seem like safe materials to use for a custom case, they are actually one of the worst. When you choose a custom case, choose those created with aluminum and foam. Aluminum is known to be both water and debris resistant while also helping to maintain a safe internal temperature. Foam is used to make customizable inserts for your case to add an extra layer of protection for your equipment.

At Packaging Strategies Incorporated, we create custom aluminum cases to protect the important equipment held inside. We know how essential a custom aluminum case is when transporting equipment for military and medical purposes. We pride ourselves on creating cases that meet every need of our customer while also exceeding their expectations, at a price that is affordable and reasonable. We are also proud of our service to every arm of the Department of Defense and United States military.

Aluminum or Plastic for your Case

June 21st, 2015

Custom Aluminum Case
When it comes to choosing an appropriate case for your equipment, you want to choose a material that will properly protect your expensive cargo. While many might believe that using a plastic case is the best choice because of cost, they fail to realize that the more appropriate material to use for your case is aluminum. So when should you use an aluminum case over a plastic case?
1. An aluminum case will provide durable protection for your equipment during transportation. This means that your case can be stacked and moved without fear of severe damage to either the case or the equipment inside. When put under strenuous weight, plastic cases are more likely to crack or break in comparison to aluminum cases.
2. When you are transporting more than one case, you don’t want to carry heavy cases around. A plastic case will add excess weight when shipping while an aluminum case is lightweight and easier to handle. This will also cut down on overall transportation time.
3. If you are sending expensive and sensitive equipment into severe weather conditions, a plastic case will not be able to withstand the elements. Cold weather could cause a plastic case to crack while warm weather could cause plastic to melt, with either scenario resulting in damage to your equipment. With an aluminum case, your equipment will be safe from the harsh elements and the case will be left untouched by severe weather and temperature changes.

At Packaging Strategies Incorporated, we create custom aluminum cases to protect the important equipment held inside. We know how essential a custom aluminum case is when transporting equipment for military and medical purposes. We pride ourselves on creating cases that meet every need of our customer while also exceeding their expectations, at a price that is affordable and reasonable. We are also proud of our service to every arm of the Department of Defense and United States military.

Packing your Military Case

June 14th, 2015

Custom Military Case
When you are transporting important military equipment, a proper military case is a must. However, just having the proper case is not necessarily enough to ship your equipment safely. Taking the proper steps to ensure your equipment is packed correctly will help your equipment arrive to its destination safe and sound.

1. Before any packing is done, determine what equipment you are shipping. Take note of the size of your equipment, detachable parts, and any sensitive areas that may require more protection than the rest of your equipment.
2. Based on the size of your equipment, choose a military case that will fit the equipment properly. Choosing a military case that is too small or too large for the equipment you are shipping could cause serious damage to occur during transportation.
3. Consider the elements your equipment will face during transportation. Harsh temperatures along with wind, dust, and water can cause serious complications or damage to your vital equipment. Ensure your military case is equipped to handle these possible weather scenarios.
4. Equip your military case with custom made foam interiors to add an extra level of protection to your military equipment. Foam interiors can be made to fit comfortably within your military case and to also allow specific areas for each portion of your equipment.
5. Be aware of the materials being used in your military case. Some materials, such as cardboard, can cause unexpected static electricity, which could result in hazardous malfunctions and even explosions.
6. Once your military case has been packed, ensure the case is properly labeled. This will allow handlers to quickly and properly identify your equipment during and after transportation.

At Packaging Strategies Incorporated, we create custom aluminum cases to protect the important equipment held inside. We know how essential a custom aluminum case is when transporting equipment for military and medical purposes. We pride ourselves on creating cases that meet every need of our customer while also exceeding their expectations, at a price that is affordable and reasonable.
