Injection Molded Cases: Learn the Benefits

Friday, September 25th, 2015

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.

Rotational Molding: The Benefits

Friday, September 18th, 2015

You have a wide range of options when it comes to selecting the best material to suit your packaging, transport, and storage needs. How do you decide which option is going to be the best fit for you? Educating yourself on the properties and advantages of different materials is the best way to go about your decision-making. Luckily for you, Packaging Strategies Inc. is here to provide their expert insight on one of the top methods of manufacturing cases: rotational molding.

What is rotational molding?

Rotational molding is the name of the process used to shape and form plastic that will make up different kinds of shipping containers and storage cases. What exactly does this process entail? It is unique from most other forms of plastic molding that can involve air-blowing, injection, and high-pressure techniques to shape the plastic. Resin powder is melted inside of the mold itself to allow for customizable size, and because the process does not involve many other steps, it is relatively less expensive than other methods.

Why should I choose a rotational molding case?

One of the main advantages of rotational molding being a low-cost process is that, consequently, the end product is much more affordable. You sacrifice nothing for the lower price as well; rotational molding cases are strong, durable, easy to transport, and easy to customize to your specific needs. It will not warp or change in structure and will protect your items during transit or in storage with no hassle or stress to you.

What to Look for in a Packaging Company

Friday, September 4th, 2015

packaging company When you begin your search for a custom case for your equipment, you don’t want to just choose a company from thin air. You want to conduct some research before you make a decision to ensure the company is right for you. You must determine if the packaging company is able to fit your needs without leaving your equipment damaged and your budget completely spent. As you conduct your search for a packaging company, consider some characteristics.

You should first consider the reputation of the packaging company. Ask them if they have worked on any major projects in the past and if they are able to provide you with references. A lack of references could be a red flag to lack of professionalism or just a lack of experience, both things you don’t want from a packaging company.

You should then discuss customization options with the packaging company. With an equipment case, one size should never fit all. The company should be able to provide you with a list of ways that your case can be customized. If they can’t provide you with this, it means they won’t be able to customize your case to fit your specific needs.

Another characteristic to consider is the materials used to create the cases. Poor materials can lead to poorly made cases, which can leave your equipment damaged.

The staff working for the packaging company is another item to consider. You want to be greeted with friendly staff who will take the time to answer your questions and provide you with the information you want and need. If you call the company, you should be able to easily speak with a knowledgeable staff member without issue.

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.
