The Benefits of Injection Molded Cases

Friday, August 29th, 2014

benefits of injection molded cases
When it comes to developing a high quality product at a price that customers can afford, Packaging Strategies Incorporated exceeds all expectations. One of the ways PSI has been able to produce quality custom cases for the Baltimore area is through injection molded cases. While this method of case production may not seem beneficial, it actually holds several benefits for both the consumer and producer. Some benefits of using injection molded cases include:

1. Production can be made quickly, putting the product in the hand of the consumer quicker.
2. Customization is easier with the option to add fillers and inserts.
3. Hinges and locks can also be added during the production process.
4. Waste is almost non-existent. Any scrap material can be grounded down to be reused.
5. Post production is normally unnecessary, cutting labor cost.
6. Different types of material can be used during the process at the same time.

Materials that can be used are broken down into three different categories of polymers:

1. Thermoplastics- Polystyrene, nylon, polyethylene
2. Thermosets- Phenolic, Epoxy
3. Elastomers

The process to make the injection molded cases can be broken down into four different “times”. These times are as follows:

1. Fill Time- The time it takes for air to be removed from the mold cavity.
2. Pack Time- The time it takes to fill the mold with the material of choice.
3. Cool Time- The time it takes for the material to cool or set.
4. Dead Time- The time it takes for the part to be removed from the mold and the mold to be reset.

PSI strives to create a durable product for our consumers that will not only meet their casing needs, but exceed their expectations. PSI has been serving the Baltimore area for over 50 years and continues to lead the area in the custom cases and shipping cases industry.

A Custom SKB Case for your Medical Equipment

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

When it comes to medical equipment, you have to prioritize keeping it safe, sterile, and in proper working condition. After all, peoples’ lives could be at stake! So when you are transporting medical equipment and instruments from location to location, how can you guarantee that nothing will happen that could potentially compromise it? The best solution is a reliable case: a custom-designed SKB case from PSI Cases.

PSI has a strategic partnership with SKB Cases to ensure that we provide nothing but the highest quality custom cases to our clients. SKB cases are some of the toughest, more durable cases available, designed to withstand the water, dust, and air that can contribute to corrosion. They are also impact-resistant, meaning that the contents will stay as undamaged as the exterior of your case.

When you select a custom SKB case, you have the ability to ensure that no matter what kind of medical equipment you will be transporting, it will stay safe and secure and free from harm. One of the top benefits of custom cases from PSI is the specially-crafted foam interiors we create for your case; the foam can be cut to fit even the most delicate tools easily and keep them stationary until they need to be used. This is especially necessary for medical cases that will be transporting liquids in glass containers, as they could easily shatter and spill if not packaged properly.

Having a reliable method of transportation for your medical equipment and instruments means that it is easier and safer to bring these materials with you to the site of a medical emergency. Being able to do this could mean the difference between getting a person the help she or he needs immediately and waiting to transport them to a hospital, which could prove risky or, in some situations, impossible. The convenience and necessity of a custom SKB medical case is all-too clear; contact PSI Cases today to get started on the design for your case!
