The Benefits of Injection Molded Cases

Monday, April 28th, 2014

benefits of injection molded casesInjection molded cases are cost effective plastic cases that are made from many types of plastic.  The plastic is poured into a heated barrel and then set to cool and take the shape of the case mold.  The mold may be difficult or costly to make, but the actual production is very cost effective.  Injection molds are used to make cases for musical instruments, weapons, cell phones, pill cases, plastic bottles, toys, shipping, and much more.

Plastic cases made from an injection mold are very durable, depending on the type of plastic used for the job.  They can be very heavy and durable and/or lightweight as needed.

An injection mold ensures that the end product takes the shape of the case mold and can include molded in features such as hinges and latches.  This means that your end product will have the hinges and latches present in the case mold, which will reduce the amount of manpower required for manual labor.  This helps keep these cases cost effective!

When making these cases, there are very few scrap materials leftover.  Materials are used to fit into the molds and leftover plastics are poured into the next molds.  This is another way that these products remain cost-effective.  These plastics are so durable that they can withstand repeated high tolerances to temperature and physical stressors.

The Benefits of Roto-Molded Cases

Wednesday, 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?

Thursday, 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).
