Choosing an Aluminum Case

May 8th, 2015

Aluminum Case Benefits

When it comes to choosing a custom case to transport your sensitive equipment in, there are several casing materials to choose from. While many believe that a simple plastic case can get the job done, that isn’t always the best option. There are certain situations when a custom aluminum case is the best option for the job at hand.

If you plan on sending sensitive or expensive equipment into harsher conditions than normal, a custom aluminum case will be your best option. Aluminum cases have the ability to be made airtight, preventing any dirt or debris from entering the case and causing damage to your equipment. This means the cases can also be made watertight as well. Water can cause a lot of irreparable damage to your equipment, which makes a watertight case essential. A custom aluminum case can also handle high temperatures without allowing the temperature to rise within the case.

If you wish to use your case for a long period of time for multiple jobs, consider using a custom aluminum case. An aluminum case can withstand stress and general wear and tear that comes from being used often. A plastic case will tend to crack or become damaged more quickly than an aluminum case. Cracks, even the smallest one, can cause a plastic case to leave your equipment vulnerable to further damage. A custom aluminum case is also very easily transported. While being able to handle large levels of stress and weight, the case is still able to be moved easily. This means the case doesn’t require specific conditions in order to be transported.

At Packaging Strategies Incorporated, we create custom aluminum cases to protect the important equipment held inside. We know how essential a custom aluminum case are 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.

Your Custom Military Case

May 1st, 2015

Custom-Military-Case

Choosing your custom military case can be difficult, and almost stressful. You want to be sure to choose a case that is affordable, efficient, and strong. If your military equipment becomes damaged during travel, your life could be at risk. You need your military equipment to stay safe and secure during travel to ensure proper function and the safety of everyone around you, including yourself. Here are some things to consider when choosing your custom military case:

1. Overall Protection- You must consider the level of protection your custom military case is offering you. You need a custom military case that will not only protect your equipment from the outside, but the inside as well. Look for a custom military case that uses aluminum as its outer shell and that also includes a custom foam interior. The foam interior will help keep your equipment safe from movement and temperature.
2. Equipment- Determine the type of equipment you are transporting in your custom military case. Some types of equipment require more protection than others. Some equipment can be simply placed inside a case while others require a foam interior and other customizations.
3. Arrival- When choosing a custom military case, keep in mind where your equipment is heading. Locations that have extreme hot or cold temperatures require cases that offer temperature control options. Locations that see plenty of rain or high levels of humidity require cases that are watertight, which will prevent moisture from entering the case and causing damage. Dry locations require cases that are airtight, to prevent debris from entering the case and damaging the 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.

Custom Cases and SKB

April 26th, 2015

Custom-Cases-SKBIt’s easy to say that the most important part of being a gun-owner is practicing gun safety. At PSI, we take safety very seriously. We’ve compiled a small list of gun-safety tips to keep in mind when handling a firearm.

1. Handle any firearm as you would if it was loaded.
2. Don’t joke around. You should never pretend to shoot something, or point the gun at something you don’t actually mean to destroy.
3. Be aware. It’s important to be aware of your surroundings, your target, and what is beyond your target. A gun can be more powerful than you think, and the target may be less powerful than you think. The bullet may go through the target, so its important to pay attention to what else it might hit in the process.
4. Don’t touch the trigger. Unless you are pointing your gun towards your target and are ready to shoot, keep your finger off the trigger. Every time you touch the trigger, you risk possibility of accidentally shooting the gun.
5. Keep your firearms stored safely and properly.

This last tip is especially important to us. If you own a firearm, you usually know the best way to handle it, but do you know the best way to store it? You should never keep a gun out where inexperienced friends, family, or children could get ahold of it. For this reason, it’s important to lock your firearms in a case. The best cases to look into are custom cases from one of our strategic partners, SKB.

SKB offers a wide range of custom cases for your firearms. These include cases that are airtight, waterproof and dust proof, have adjustable foam interiors, and much more. If you’re looking for a case that holds two rifles, SKB can provide you with a case that has a convoluted bunk bed style foam interior. If you’re looking for a small case to hold a pistol, SKB can provide you with a case with a custom interior that has an adjustable high-density foam cutout to fit various pistols. No matter the size or type of your firearm, SKB is the place to go for custom cases.

Practicing gun safety is one of the most important parts of being a gun-owner, and having the right case can help you do so!

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.

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.

We know how essential a custom aluminum case is when transporting equipment for military and medical purposes.

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.
