Choosing your Roto Molded Case

Friday, July 31st, 2015

When looking for packaging solutions, especially when shipping delicate gear and instruments, it’s important to be aware of all your available option. One potential packing solution is the use of sturdy rotomold custom cases. Packing Stratagies Incorporated offers a number of rotomold cases suitable for transporting a wide variety of military goods and specialized technical equipment. Rotomold (which stands for rotationally molded) cases are made in machines which melt plastic and then rotates it until it takes the shape of a preinstalled metallic mold.

Roto-Molded Cases

While rotomold cases cannot be produced as quickly as those made via injection molding, Rotomold cases are much easier to make in larger sizes, and will naturally have thicker corners and edges, with thinner walls making it an ideal packaging solution for projects that require lightweight but durable cases. It’s also worth noting that, using rotational molding, manufacturers can customize wall thickness to achieve the optimal balance between weight and durability for your shipping needs, an option not available through other molding processes.

Rotational Molding is also a much more ecologically friendly process than injection or blow molding. It results in less waste and any excess can be melted down and reused in subsequent batches. Roto molded cases also allow the manufacturer greater.

The Need for an Electronic Case

Friday, July 24th, 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.

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.

Materials to Use for your Custom Case

Friday, July 10th, 2015

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

Celebrating Independence Day

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Independence Day

This Friday marks the 239th birthday of the United States of America. July 4th is the most celebrated day in America, as it highlights the independence of the United States from Britain. As Americans from all across the country begin to celebrate the holiday with parades, cookouts, and fireworks, here are a few things to remember about the holiday!

  1. Declaration of Independence- Independence Day is the celebration of the signing of the document known as the Declaration of Independence. This document, signed by Robert Livingston, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Thomas Jefferson, declared America’s independence from Britain.
  2. Federal Holiday- Although Independence Day had been celebrated since 1776, Congress didn’t declare the day a federal holiday until 1938.
  3. Not the Accurate Date- While we continue to celebrate our Independence on July 4th, the truth still remains that the actual time of independence came at least a month later. The Declaration of Independence was fully signed by each member of the Continental Congress until August 2nd and didn’t reach King George the Third until August 30th.
  4. Death of Two Men- On July 4th, 1826, 50 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson passed away within hours of one another.
  5. Fireworks- The tradition of fireworks on July 4th began around the 19th century when citizens began to light and set off left over explosives from the war. Today, over 14,000 fireworks displays are ignited each year for the holiday.

Packaging Strategies Incorporated enjoys celebrating the independence of the United States of America each year. Our company is proud to continue our partnership with every branch of the United States Armed Forces who continue to protect the independence of the American people.
