The Benefits of a Custom Case

April 19th, 2015

A standard solution won’t work for everyone, and a custom case is the best way to address individual needs.

After all, one-size fits all approach isn’t going to work in today’s market. We all have very specific needs, and a consumer deserves to work with a company who takes those needs into consideration. With that in mind, what are the biggest benefits of a custom case?

The Perfect Size

A custom case can provide the exact dimensions to fit your important gear. When transporting items that are extra fragile, a standard case may not be able to properly protect the item. A case being too loose might mean that what you’re transporting becomes damaged or broken, which defeats the purpose of even buying a case. With a custom case, however, you have the benefit of having your exact needs met. Additionally, custom cases can be constructed of materials that help prevent water damage and are shock resistant. For bumpy terrain, this is critical.

Own the Perfect Case

When you create a custom case, you have the ability to have it accessorized in whatever manner you wish. Would adding wheels on your case make it easier to handle? Does the interior need to have extra protection to fully protect what you’re transporting? You’ve probably been in an airport and noticed people struggle with their bags. Wherever you are traveling, you need to account for whatever situations may arise. A regular case may slow you down, but a custom case will help you stay on the move and will not weigh you down.

Work with a Professional

When you work with a professional custom case builder, you will be able to fin a custom solution for your needs. With years of experience, the right company can help you design exactly what you have in mind, and use years of experience to help you reach an efficient and optimized solution for your custom case.

Characteristics of a Packaging Company

April 2nd, 2015

When you are looking for a packaging company to create your new custom equipment cases, you don’t want to choose the first name you hear of. It is essential to conduct research of a packaging company to determine if they are the right fit for your needs. If you choose the wrong packaging company, your equipment could be left damaged, and your budget could be left empty. Instead of choosing a name from a hat, look for a few different characteristics to determine if the packaging company is right for you.
Packaging-Company

The first characteristic to consider in your packaging company is their reputation. Ask to see some of their past work and if they have ever worked on any major projects. You should also ask for a list of references. If the company is unwilling to provide you with the information, it can be a clear sign that their reputation is less than desirable.

A packaging company should also be able to provide you with a customized case that suits your needs. They should be able to provide you with a list of options to help create a case that meets all of your needs.

A reliable packaging company should use quality materials to create their products. Low quality materials may seem cheaper in the initial price, but could lead to serious costs in damages to your equipment.
A packaging company is only as strong as its staff. When you visit with a potential packaging company, talk to different members of the staff. By talking to staff, you can get a sense of the work that is done along with the knowledge and skill the hired staff contains.

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.

Interiors for a Custom Military Case

March 27th, 2015

Militay-Case

When equipment is being shipped to any members of our military, it is essential that the equipment arrives in pristine condition. If damage occurs to the equipment during transport, the results could be devastating. Those stationed on the front lines don’t have time to deal with malfunctioning equipment, it could end up being a matter of life or death. In order to prevent such damage from occurring, create your custom military case with interiors that protect your military equipment.
So what type of interiors should you consider for your custom military case?

Climate Controls
While we may not know exactly where some military equipment travels, it is safe to say that the environment is less than ideal . With such harsh temperature changes, it is important to protect your military equipment from the elements. Climate controls help to maintain a stable and ideal temperature within the custom military case to ensure that equipment inside is left in working order. Without these controls, extremely high or low temperature could cause internal damage to your equipment, rendering them useless upon arrival.

Foam Inserts and Liners
While those who handle your custom military case will try to do so with care, there is no telling what kind of conditions your case will be entering. Shocks to the case whenever serious movement occurs could not only damage the exterior of your equipment, but the internal workings as well. Foam inserts and liners will create an absorbent barrier between the case and your equipment to prevent damage from occurring during movement.

Rackmounts
Does your military equipment include computers? Rackmounts allow you to safely store your computers and other electronics safely within your custom military case without the fear of damage to the internal hard drives.

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.

Benefits of the Rotational Mold

March 23rd, 2015

Rotational-Mold


The rotational mold is a production method for creating a plastic case. The procedure includes filling a mold with plastic, heating the plastic, and then rotating the mold slowly. The heat continues to melt the plastic while the rotation allows the heat to be distributed evenly to create a solid case. While some may not believe a rotational mold is the best way to create a case, they fail to realize the benefits that come from using a rotational mold.

• Cost-A rotational mold has a low cost to begin production and doesn’t increase by much as production continues. A rotational mold can also include other applications to the case like different colors and metal threads that won’t have to be added once the case has been created. Because the time doesn’t need to be used to add on these features, the overall cost of creating the case is cheaper than other mold options.

• Production- A rotational mold has a shorter production time in comparison to other mold options such as blow molding and injection molding. Production can begin with a rotational mold in about three months, where production typically begins after six months with an injection mold. This means you can produce twice as much with a rotational mold in comparison to an injection mold.

• Durability- Because of the way a rotational mold distributes the heat to the plastic, your case will have an even thickness in each wall. This means that your case will be able to handle more stress and activity in comparison to other plastic cases.

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.

Choosing your Custom Medical Case

March 13th, 2015

Medical equipment is imperative in keeping us safe and healthy. Without the latest equipment and technology, illness and injury would be left untreated. Because of how important this medical equipment is to our society, shipping the equipment must be done with care and precision. One way to guarantee that your medical equipment is shipped properly is through a custom medical case.

A custom medical case can be created to ship your specific piece of equipment to ensure your equipment is protected. A custom medical case can also be fitted with a custom foam insert to help add another layer of protection to your equipment. While you want to protect the outside of your equipment, you should never forget about the inner workings of your equipment. If the wires or other workings become damaged, your medical equipment could be rendered useless once it reaches its destination.

Custom medical cases help prevent dirt and water from entering your case during transportation. A custom medical case can also be used to regulate internal temperatures within the case to keep your equipment working properly. If your equipment arrives damaged, someone’s life could be in danger. While custom medical cases may seem like an unnecessary expense, it could be the difference between life and death.

Avoiding Custom Case Mistakes

February 27th, 2015

When it comes to purchasing a custom case for your electrical, medical, or military equipment, you want to choose the case that will best protect your equipment during travel. While a custom case is the best step towards a safe travel for your equipment, making mistakes with your custom case could prevent effective protection. So what custom case mistakes should you avoid?

Custom-Case-Mistakes

The first mistake that is often made when choosing a custom case is the type of materials being used. While materials such as plastic and wood are cheaper in price than aluminum, they could cost you more money in the long run. Aluminum is known to be a strong material to use when creating a custom case to not only create a protective outer shell for your equipment, but to block out dust and water while also helping to maintain the internal temperature of the case.

The second mistake that is typically made with a custom case is the lack of customization that takes place. Ignoring customization options such as foam interiors, rack mounts, and climate controls can make sure custom case ineffective during the transportation process. The point of creating a custom case is to include features that best protect your equipment.

The final mistake to avoid making with your custom case is assuming that transportation conditions are ideal. You should create your custom case with the worst scenario in mind rather than the best. Create a custom case that can protect your equipment from harsh weather conditions and rough movements to ensure your equipment can withstand anything.

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.

The Importance of Electronic Cases

February 20th, 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.

PSI and MEGS

February 12th, 2015

The United Service Organization is a nonprofit that was created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941. The purpose of the organization is to provide our troops with entertainment as they serve our country. Local USOs throughout different countries where troops are stationed provide the men and women with entertainment and time to relax from their high stressed situations. However, troops within the Special Forces are left without these simple pleasures because of their remote locations. According to Brian Hargis, the USO was able to make him a hero to troops within the HALO team from 7th Special Forces Group. How? By providing the troops with MEGS.

MEGS
A Mobile Entertainment Gaming System, or MEG, is a self-contained platform for multimedia use. The equipment is placed within a rugged and durable case that troops are able to transport easily. Within each black case, troops will find an Xbox system along with a monitor, controllers, power strip, Xbox Kinect, games, and DVDs. The USO created this idea and brought their plans and ideas to PSI. After working with PSI, MEGS were being shipped to troops in May of 2012. The CEO of PSI, Jeff Bell, had this to say about the project, “PSI supports the warfighter and is pleased to play a small part in bringing some happiness to those who defend our country on a daily basis.”

PSI uses testing and methods for both the electrical design and the exterior case design that are typically used for military combat equipment to ensure the gaming equipment arrives to its destination safely. In 2014 alone, 92 MEGS were shipped to entertain 11,722 troops in areas like Iraq, Africa, and Afghanistan.

Units can request a MEGS by using this form.
