When you’re coming up with a custom case solution for your needs, you might think that the exterior material is the most important factor to decide on.

Foam Cushioning

Foam cushioning can keep your delicate cargo safe from damage.

Foam cushioning has a very important function within custom cases. It keeps the cargo organized and contained and protects it from shock damage. When you are looking at the design of your custom case, choosing the right foam cushioning can make the difference in keeping your cargo safe and functioning when it reaches its destination. In order for this to happen, you’ll need to keep three things in mind – which system is right for your needs, which type of foam, and how it is to be cut. (more…)

Interiors for a Custom Military Case

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Militay-Case

When equipment is being shipped to any members of our military, it is essential that the equipment arrives in pristine condition. If damage occurs to the equipment during transport, the results could be devastating. Those stationed on the front lines don’t have time to deal with malfunctioning equipment, it could end up being a matter of life or death. In order to prevent such damage from occurring, create your custom military case with interiors that protect your military equipment.
So what type of interiors should you consider for your custom military case?

Climate Controls
While we may not know exactly where some military equipment travels, it is safe to say that the environment is less than ideal . With such harsh temperature changes, it is important to protect your military equipment from the elements. Climate controls help to maintain a stable and ideal temperature within the custom military case to ensure that equipment inside is left in working order. Without these controls, extremely high or low temperature could cause internal damage to your equipment, rendering them useless upon arrival.

Foam Inserts and Liners
While those who handle your custom military case will try to do so with care, there is no telling what kind of conditions your case will be entering. Shocks to the case whenever serious movement occurs could not only damage the exterior of your equipment, but the internal workings as well. Foam inserts and liners will create an absorbent barrier between the case and your equipment to prevent damage from occurring during movement.

Rackmounts
Does your military equipment include computers? Rackmounts allow you to safely store your computers and other electronics safely within your custom military case without the fear of damage to the internal hard drives.

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.

The Importance of Electronic Cases

Friday, February 20th, 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.

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.

Customize your Case with Custom Foam Interiors

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Custom Foam Interior
Shipping delicate equipment can be a stressful and difficult process. The case being used must protect not only the outside of the equipment, but the inner workings of the equipment as well. In order to ensure the equipment is shipped without being damaged, consider custom foam interiors for your case. While some may think that a foam interior is unnecessary, a custom foam interior can hold several benefits for your equipment.

Foam Interior Benefits

1. Organization- A custom foam interior can be cut to incorporate compartments for each piece of equipment. This prevents parts from clanging together while in transport and makes packing easier. Everything will fit easily in the case when a foam interior maps out where each part belongs.
2. Protective Layer- While the strong outer surface of the case protects the external components of your equipment; a foam interior will protect the internal components. The foam will absorb any shock waves or sudden movements while in transport, making sure your equipment is safe and unharmed.
3. Temperature- Some equipment require certain temperatures to avoid damage. A foam interior will help maintain and balance the internal temperature of the case so your equipment is never damaged.
4. Clean- Custom foam interiors are cut to fit the specific case, which eliminates the need for messier packing materials.

At Packing Strategies Incorporated, we specialize in making and installing custom foam interiors for your custom cases. PSI understands that your equipment needs to be protected at all times during transportation, which is why we are continuously working to find new innovative ways to create custom cases and foam interiors. Located in Baltimore, Maryland, PSI is the only name you need to know when it comes to foam interiors.

Do you really need a foam interior?

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

When transporting something of such importance like military and medical electronic equipment, protection is essential. There are a number of ways for equipment to become damaged during transport. While protecting the outside of your equipment is key, there is also stress being placed on the inner workings of your equipment as well.

It is important to be aware of how you transport your equipment and what precautions you take to ensure that the brain of your equipment is kept safe. Sure a strong, durable case is important to ensure the protection of the equipment, but how does the inside of your case protect the inside of your equipment?

The key is foam interior. With foam interior, you are not only preventing damage to the shell of your equipment, but preventing damage to the heart and brain of your equipment. Within your equipment’s hard drive, several things could be damaged during a strenuous move. Zero Assumption Recovery says that the following two failures could occur due to physical damage:

  1. Logic board failures- This includes broken connectors and chip damage that would result in equipment needing to be replaced.
  2. Moving parts failure- This includes a head crash or a spindle motor failure that would also be in need of repairs and replacement.

With a custom foam interior within your case, these failures could be prevented. Foam interiors will help absorb the shock and vibrations that will occur during transportation of your equipment. This interior will also help moderate the temperature within your case, especially if your equipment will be stored on an airplane. Extreme heat or cold could cause damage to the interior of your equipment as well. If you invest in a custom foam interior for your case, organization will now be an added benefit of your case. An organized case will ensure that all parts of your equipment will stay in their proper place. Being able to locate your equipment parts will enable you to build your final product once it has reached its location quickly and efficiently.

At PSI, we will take the time to customize a foam interior for your custom case to ensure the safety of your equipment during transportation. Located in Baltimore, Maryland, foam interior is at your fingertips when the time comes to transport equipment. We specialize in custom cases as well as custom foam interior for all of your needs when transporting. Electronic Case Protection
