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.

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.

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.

Do I Need a Foam Interior?

February 6th, 2015

When it comes to creating a custom case for your military or medical case, customers are often provided with a number of options. These options can include the size of the case, the material used to make the case, and even what can be included inside the case. One of the more commonly found options for a custom case is foam interior. While a foam interior may seem like an unnecessary addition to your case, many fail to realize how essential a foam interior can be.

Foam-Interior

A foam interior can first and foremost protect your expensive and sensitive equipment. The foam interior can help to absorb any shock and harsh movements that can occur while the case is being transported, which helps prevent serious damage from occurring. Without a foam interior, the inner workings of your equipment could become compromised due to movement during transportation. A foam interior can also help keep your equipment organized. You can create an interior that provides a specific compartment for each piece of your equipment to ensure each piece has its place. This can also help decrease the time spent trying to reassemble your equipment once it has reached its destination. A foam interior can also help balance and maintain the temperature within your case. Should your custom case pass through extreme heat or chill, your equipment will be unaffected thanks to the surrounding foam. A foam interior can also help prevent any outside elements, like dirt or dust, from reaching your equipment as well.

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.

Customizing your Military Case

January 23rd, 2015

In situations of life or death, the last thing you need is for your military equipment to malfunction. Sometimes a basic military case is not enough to protect equipment from environmental stains or the daily wear and tear of storage in the midst of a military operation. Customizing your military case is the best way to protect equipment from the unpredictable. A custom military case can save you and your team in a dire situation by ensuring that equipment is safe and ready to use when needed.
Custom-Military-Case

There are many ways to customize your case to best suit your needs, based on environment, equipment, and usage. Although a custom case may seem secondary to the gun or other military equipment itself, it not only protects your investment, but it also protects your life.

Foam Inserts

Customizing your military case starts with molding the inside to fit your equipment. A good custom case needs a perfect foam lining to hold your equipment in place to prevent any shifting of the equipment while traveling. Impact based on transport is just one aspect of possible and unpredictable impact that could be inflicted on your equipment. In order to protect not only from transport, but also from military-related impact from living and working in an active combat zone, a custom military case with effective foam inserts and linings is necessary.

Foam linings can also be functional in addition to providing protection. Having a multitude of slots best suited to your specific equipment can help keep you and your equipment organized. In addition to fitting military weapons and other equipment in your custom case, you can also fit other tools and even medical equipment. Anything you will find valuable in a combat zone, you can fit in your custom case in one of the many slots you can design yourself.

Rackmounts
In addition to foam linings and inserts for your custom case, there are other things you can do to customize the interior of your custom military case. One of these things is to add rackmounts, especially for electronic equipment. Rackmounts secure your electronic equipment in order to use them no matter where you’re located. Rackmounts are made of shock absorbent aluminum to protect equipment from even the roughest of environments.

Protect Against the Elements
Your custom military case can also be customized to prevent damage due to harsh environments. In a military mission, weather is unpredictable and sometimes combat has to be carried out even in the harshest of conditions. Protecting your military equipment against the elements can be difficult but with climate control options, your custom case can get you and your equipment from point A to B safely.

Custom Aluminum Cases Benefit Protection of Contents

January 15th, 2015

Custom Military Case
Military equipment is sensitive and expensive, and thus requires the best care that can be offered. In addition to damage from simply breaking during transit, the equipment needs to be covered by sturdy materials for protection from weather and other unpredictable events such as electronic disruption. Aluminum cases can fit the needs of military transport in many different ways ranging from protective strength to cost effectiveness. Even civilian aluminum cases serve better than other materials because of its general ability to provide the best care for its contents.

Strength is Everything

Aluminum is a powerful metal in terms of durability. While most people may think of aluminum as weak due to the ease with which aluminum foil tears, you should bear in mind that aluminum foil is specifically made to tear in order to be easily utilized in the home environment. When it comes to field protection, the aluminum Is developed in a way that encourages strength instead of removes it. Cases made from aluminum of protection grade are sturdier than plastic and do not corrode as easily or visibly as iron and steel cases. In addition, they weigh less, allowing for easier carrying and, when shipped in bulk, a lighter overall cargo load. These benefits allow aluminum to surpass other materials in terms of effectiveness and overall look. Furthermore, the cost performance of aluminum is higher than other cases due to its flexibility during fabrication. Aluminum cases come in many different sizes with the capacity to hold a large number of objects. The efficiency with which aluminum performs makes it ideal for all uses, but especially military and medical use where fragile and sensitive contents become highly vulnerable during transport into volatile scenarios where every piece of equipment matters.

The Custom Option

The biggest value for an aluminum case is the range of customization options available to the purchaser. As mentioned, aluminum is a flexible material during production. This allows for greater freedom when shaping the material and hence why most cars and airplanes are made of aluminum. Easy cutting, especially with the many advances in computer-aided crafting, makes aluminum ideal for shaping to the slightest detail. In addition, aluminum cases can be fitted with a wide array of interior details such as felt, foam, or plastic. Since aluminum doesn’t decay very easily, the material inside won’t suffer from corrosion on the outside and will remain protected in the most difficult environments. The combination or external protection and internal adaptability makes this kind of casing even stronger in extreme situations. Cases can even be painted and marked in order to identify which branch of any given organization it belongs to. Aluminum cases share strength, but can be visually diverse in order to quickly identify which case contains what materials in the field.
