Customizable Military Cases

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

When it comes to choosing a new custom military case for transporting important military equipment, there are three things that are looked for. These three characteristics can mean the difference between damaged and undamaged equipment arriving on the frontline.

1. Rack mounts- When you are shipping important computer and electronic equipment, rack mounts are ideal for military shipping. Rack mounts allow computers and electronics to be stored neatly and efficiently during shipping, keeping them safe from the outside elements. This characteristic also includes shock absorbers so the sensitive areas of your computer are never affected by the constant movement during shipping.
2. Climate Controls- When important equipment is being shipped to the front line, there is no telling what climates the packaging may experience. Sensitive military equipment can become easily damaged by severe changes in temperature along. Equipment can also become damaged if exposed to high heats and frigid colds. Climate controls will help maintain a balanced temperature within the custom military case at all times to prevent any serious damage from taking place.
3. Foam Inserts- Customizable foam inserts not only protect your equipment, but keep your equipment organized as well. The foam helps to absorb the movement during transport while the inserts themselves provide a specific area for each piece of your equipment. This means that your equipment will be protected during shipment and can be easily assembled once it has arrived.

Choosing your Custom Military Case

Friday, November 21st, 2014

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. We are also proud of our service to every arm of the Department of Defense and United States military.

Custom Case Materials: What to Use

Friday, November 14th, 2014

PSI Custom Case Materials
When it comes to producing a strong and reliable custom case for your equipment, there are certain characteristics to look for. Your custom case should be sturdy, airtight, watertight, and created with quality materials. While some materials are ideal for creating a custom case, other materials should be avoided when making a new case. Here is a closer look into custom case materials.

Custom case materials to avoid when creating a new case include:

1. Plywood- While plywood may seem like a sturdy and environmental friendly option; this material will fail to provide the strength and durability needed for your custom case. Plywood will become weak and vulnerable to mold and rot should it travel to a humid area. Damage to the case could also allow moisture into the case, causing serious damage to your equipment.
2. Plastic- Plastic is a very commonly used material in many popular industries; however it should not be on your list for custom case materials. Plastic becomes vulnerable when exposed to extreme materials, meaning it won’t be able to hold up in extreme conditions. Heat will cause the case to melt while cold will cause the case to crack.
3. Wood Laminates- Similar to plywood, these materials are unable to handle extreme travel conditions. Wood laminates cannot stand up to the changes in humidity, temperature, and overall travel conditions, leaving your expensive and essential equipment vulnerable to irreplaceable damage.

Custom case materials to reach for when creating a new case include:

1. Aluminum- When it comes to quality custom case materials, aluminum is the best way to go. Aluminum is sturdy enough to withstand travel conditions without the fear of a crack or chip in the case. Aluminum can also withstand changes in temperature and humidity while never leaving your equipment vulnerable.
2. Foam Interiors- If you want to increase the protection surrounding your equipment, choose custom foam interiors to fit into your aluminum case. Foam interiors will keep your equipment safe from shock vibrations while also helping to monitor temperature.

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.

Veterans Day and PSI

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Veterans Day

This Tuesday our nation will be celebrating Veterans Day. Every year on November 11th, businesses and civilians alike take the time to say thanks to the many men and women that make up our United States Armed Forces. Whether they have just returned from serving in Iraq, or they still remember the days of World War II, our veterans deserve recognition and appreciation for what they have accomplished for our country.

Veterans Day originated in 1918 and was first known as Armistice Day. This is because in the eleventh month, on the eleventh day, at the eleventh hour during World War 1, Germany declared a “cessation of hostilities”. Several months later, the Treaty of Versailles was signed to end the war. Although this was signed on June 28th, the nation considered November 11th to be the true end of World War I. In 1921, an American soldier that was unidentified was buried at the Arlington National Cemetery, leading the nation to continue the tradition of celebrating Armistice Day. In 1938, an act was passed to declare November 11th as a federal holiday. As time passed and the United States engaged in World War II and the Korean War, the idea of Armistice Day began to change to include not just the First World War, but the battles that had been fought following. Because of this, President Eisenhower signed a piece of legislation in 1954 to have Armistice Day changed to Veterans Day.

Packaging Strategies Incorporated is proud to work closely with our United States government and our armed forces. We know how important it is for military equipment to be shipped effectively and safely to prevent damage from occurring. Our men and women serving our country do not have time to deal with faulty equipment due to damage that was caused by the transportation process. This is why PSI has developed several packaging solutions to ensure equipment is shipped safely for our military. We have also developed several partnerships with acclaimed manufacturers to ensure our products are made at the highest quality at a reasonable price.

PSI thanks our veterans for the service they have given and wish them the best not only on November 11th, but every day of the year.
