The Benefits of Roto-Molded Cases

April 16th, 2014

Roto-Molded CasesAttention all worry-warts! We have a solution to put you at ease when traveling with expensive materials, company products, or any item you need to keep safe from harm: roto-molded cases. Rotational molded cases have many benefits, but here are the top three when it comes to travel.

Strong is an understatement to describe rotational molded cases. The ribbed design allows other cases to be stacked on top, and the thickness prevents any breakage or damage to the contents inside. Foam interiors cradle the goods and balance with the strong polyethylene plastic outside. The process used to make the cases will allow the case to naturally form thicker corners than a regular case.

Watertight roto-molded cases prevent against moisture in the air and keep equipment dry inside. When it is pouring rain and you climb aboard your flight, sometimes all you can think about is your suitcase getting wet in the transfer. You can rest easy when your items are in a roto-molded case. Some examples of equipment rotational molded cases are used for are audio broadcast, environmental analysis, marine oceanography, electronics, and medical instruments. Another type of roto-molded case that can be constructed is for materials taken to trade shows. The materials for these are always bouncing around on planes, through airports, cars, trains, and who knows what else! A rotational molded case will prevent mutilation of the items inside so your company representative can have a stellar display when he or she reaches the designated convention center.

Roto-molded cases meet specific requirements for the Airline Transportation Association (ATA 300 category 1 specification) as well as Federal Standards and Mil-Specifications. Although it takes longer to create a roto-molded case, the process ensures that the case will be carefully crafted to meet conditions. Although rotational molded cases are strong, they are lightweight, making it easy to meet airline weight requirements for travel.

Roto-Molded Cases vs. Injection Molded Cases: Which Case is Best?

April 10th, 2014

Roto-Molded CasesIf you have ever visited our blog before, you know about the many benefits of custom cases. If we have said it once, we have said it a thousand times; we do not live in a one-size-fits-all world. So why settle for a one-size-fits-all case? Your specialized, delicate instruments need specialized packaging designed specifically for your equipment. This will ensure your electronics, medical equipment, musical instrument, or other valuable items arrive safely at their final destination.

Now the only question is which custom case…

Roto-Molded Cases vs. Injection Molded Cases: Which Case is Best?

Rotationally molded cases, better known as roto-molded cases are manufactured using a unique rotational molding process. The end result is a durable and cost-effective shipping case. Injection molded cases, meanwhile, are manufactured using a unique injection molding process. The end result is a durable and cost-effective shipping case.

At the end of the day, the only major difference is the manufacturing process. Both roto-molded and injection molded cases are incredibly durable and designed to keep your delicate equipment safe in even the harshest of environments.

One more thing: both styles of custom cases are available through Packaging Strategies Inc. (PSI).

Located in Baltimore, Maryland, PSI manufactures systems integration packages and container solutions (roto-molded cases, injection molded transit cases, and metal containers) for clientele of all shapes and sizes.

Custom Cases from PSI Cases in Baltimore

March 18th, 2014

Shipping items can be scary. You want to know that your cargo is going to arrive safely at its destination, but you can’t always be sure that a standard case or box is going to take care of it. To avoid staying up at night and wondering about your expensive, precious, or important shipments, you should have custom built cases made. Custom-built cases have some other great benefits other than knowing that your shipments are safe.

  • Personalize – Building a custom case in Baltimore means that you can accessorize it to your needs. You may need to add on wheels or a handle to help make your case more mobile, or you may want a stationary case for storage. Either way, stock cases will not always come exactly how you need them, and custom cases allow you to personalize and accessorize.
  • Customize – Depending on what you’re shipping, you’ll need specifics. You can specify the foam inside the case, the size of the case, how the case will function, and many other facets of your custom built case from PSI. The more specific you are about what you need in a case and how it needs to function, the better it will function for your purposes.
  • Pick A Size – Size really does matter when you’re choosing a shipping or storage case. If the case is too small, you run the risk of your cargo being broken or squashed, while if the case is too big, items can rattle around and break. You want the custom built case to be just the right size for the shipment so you don’t run the risk of causing any damage to your cargo.

What Are The Benefits of Rotational Molding Cases?

March 5th, 2014

Packing Strategies, Inc. carries rotational molding cases in its product line. Rotational molding cases, or roto-molding cases, go through a plastic molding technique using polyurethane material. The powdered plastic sits on two axes in a large oven as it rotates, evenly melting the material to the needed shape. Rotational molding cases are widely known for being used for commercial needs such as exhibitions and trade shows but also support military packaging, among other needs. To support these needs, there are three distinct benefits of cases that have rotational molding.

  • Price-Rotational molding is a low cost way of production. These strong cases are able to be produced at a price that is in turn affordable for the consumer. A great factor of this molding technique is cases can be produced in large or small quantities. Purchasing a rotational molding case will be the most cost-effective way of gaining a customized case.
  • Durability-Rotational molded cases possess strength that comes from the melting process. Although the cases are exceptionally lightweight and easy to carry, the plastic has strong corners from the evenly distributed material. Rotational molding also allows the case to have a uniform density and double walls.  Cases with total enclosure can be produced thus gaining the ability to survive tough environments.
  • Customizable-The rotational molding technique has the opposite effect of air molding. It does not force the plastic into a shape but rather allows for different size and style cases. Virtually any size case with great surface detail can be produced using rotational molding. Various colors can be used at the same time during the process to create a diverse product.
