Medical Cases with SKB

Friday, August 28th, 2015

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!

Creating a Watertight Case

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Watertight custom cases

When it comes to creating a custom case for your military and medical equipment, you need one that will be durable and sturdy. Another important characteristic to look for in your custom case is for your case to be watertight. While this may seem like a characteristic that isn’t imperative, having a watertight case is actually a necessary component to look for in your custom case. Some reasons for needing a watertight case include:

 

  1. Electrical equipment and water are never a good mix. Even the smallest amount of water can cause a short in general electrical equipment. If your case uses fans or other electrical devices to maintain temperature, water exposure could cause them to fail.
  2. Highly sensitive medical equipment should never be exposed to water. Water exposure could damage the equipment, leading to pricy repairs and failed projects or missions.
  3. If military equipment like weapons and ammunition is being transported, water exposure can never an option. Water damage can leave weapons faulty, putting soldiers and other personnel in danger when using the equipment.
  4. If a case isn’t watertight, transporters must by highly aware of how the case is transported and where the case is stored. A watertight case is able to be stored and transported in a number ways with no worry of damage from the elements.
  5. A watertight case will ensure the equipment inside will stay functional once they have reached their destination.

Choosing your Electronic Case

Friday, August 14th, 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.

Injection Mold Cases: The Benefits

Friday, August 7th, 2015

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.
