Materials for your Custom Case

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.

Choosing your Custom Medical Case

Friday, March 13th, 2015

Medical equipment is imperative in keeping us safe and healthy. Without the latest equipment and technology, illness and injury would be left untreated. Because of how important this medical equipment is to our society, shipping the equipment must be done with care and precision. One way to guarantee that your medical equipment is shipped properly is through a custom medical case.

A custom medical case can be created to ship your specific piece of equipment to ensure your equipment is protected. A custom medical case can also be fitted with a custom foam insert to help add another layer of protection to your equipment. While you want to protect the outside of your equipment, you should never forget about the inner workings of your equipment. If the wires or other workings become damaged, your medical equipment could be rendered useless once it reaches its destination.

Custom medical cases help prevent dirt and water from entering your case during transportation. A custom medical case can also be used to regulate internal temperatures within the case to keep your equipment working properly. If your equipment arrives damaged, someone’s life could be in danger. While custom medical cases may seem like an unnecessary expense, it could be the difference between life and death.

Customizing your Military Case

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

In situations of life or death, the last thing you need is for your military equipment to malfunction. Sometimes a basic military case is not enough to protect equipment from environmental stains or the daily wear and tear of storage in the midst of a military operation. Customizing your military case is the best way to protect equipment from the unpredictable. A custom military case can save you and your team in a dire situation by ensuring that equipment is safe and ready to use when needed.
Custom-Military-Case

There are many ways to customize your case to best suit your needs, based on environment, equipment, and usage. Although a custom case may seem secondary to the gun or other military equipment itself, it not only protects your investment, but it also protects your life.

Foam Inserts

Customizing your military case starts with molding the inside to fit your equipment. A good custom case needs a perfect foam lining to hold your equipment in place to prevent any shifting of the equipment while traveling. Impact based on transport is just one aspect of possible and unpredictable impact that could be inflicted on your equipment. In order to protect not only from transport, but also from military-related impact from living and working in an active combat zone, a custom military case with effective foam inserts and linings is necessary.

Foam linings can also be functional in addition to providing protection. Having a multitude of slots best suited to your specific equipment can help keep you and your equipment organized. In addition to fitting military weapons and other equipment in your custom case, you can also fit other tools and even medical equipment. Anything you will find valuable in a combat zone, you can fit in your custom case in one of the many slots you can design yourself.

Rackmounts
In addition to foam linings and inserts for your custom case, there are other things you can do to customize the interior of your custom military case. One of these things is to add rackmounts, especially for electronic equipment. Rackmounts secure your electronic equipment in order to use them no matter where you’re located. Rackmounts are made of shock absorbent aluminum to protect equipment from even the roughest of environments.

Protect Against the Elements
Your custom military case can also be customized to prevent damage due to harsh environments. In a military mission, weather is unpredictable and sometimes combat has to be carried out even in the harshest of conditions. Protecting your military equipment against the elements can be difficult but with climate control options, your custom case can get you and your equipment from point A to B safely.

Why is Case Design Important?

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Anyone who has ever needed to ship expensive military or medical equipment understands that the design of the case is imperative. If a shipping case is poorly design, the equipment inside could be left vulnerable to serious damage.

When you focus on case design for your military or medical equipment, you are leaving your options open when it comes to customization. This means that each case is designed for your specific situation. One case will not necessarily fit every piece of equipment you need to ship, which is why case design is essential when planning to ship expensive and sensitive equipment.

A case design should also incorporate sturdy and quality materials to protect the equipment found inside. Aluminum is the most used material when it comes to case design because it is able to stay strong during extreme circumstances while also being easy to transport. While the case design calls for durability, it should also be designed to be transported easily. If a case is too heavy or bulky, transporting can become difficult and ineffective.

A case design should also take into account the type of environment the case will be entering during transport. If you are expecting your case to enter dusty, rainy, frigid, or scorching conditions, your case should be able to withstand the weather without leaving your equipment vulnerable to damage. This means your case design should include water and air tight seals while also including materials inside to help maintain a safe temperature for your equipment.

Custom Case Design

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 Aluminum Cases over Plastic

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Custom Aluminum Case
When it comes to choosing an appropriate case for your equipment, you want to choose a material that will properly protect your expensive cargo. While many might believe that using a plastic case is the best choice because of cost, they fail to realize that the more appropriate material to use for your case is aluminum. So when should you use an aluminum case over a plastic case?
1. An aluminum case will provide durable protection for your equipment during transportation. This means that your case can be stacked and moved without fear of severe damage to either the case or the equipment inside. When put under strenuous weight, plastic cases are more likely to crack or break in comparison to aluminum cases.
2. When you are transporting more than one case, you don’t want to carry heavy cases around. A plastic case will add excess weight when shipping while an aluminum case is lightweight and easier to handle. This will also cut down on overall transportation time.
3. If you are sending expensive and sensitive equipment into severe weather conditions, a plastic case will not be able to withstand the elements. Cold weather could cause a plastic case to crack while warm weather could cause plastic to melt, with either scenario resulting in damage to your equipment. With an aluminum case, your equipment will be safe from the harsh elements and the case will be left untouched by severe weather and temperature changes.

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.

Common Custom Case Mistakes

Monday, December 8th, 2014

Custom Case Mistakes

When you have expensive and sensitive equipment to travel for military or medical purposes, you are in need of custom cases. However, with so many custom cases to choose from, people tend to make mistakes when purchasing their custom cases. Here are some of the common custom case mistakes made by those who are making purchases.

Custom Case Mistake #1

One of the main mistakes made when purchasing custom cases is the lack of customization for an attempt of a lower price. Many believe that in order to have a case customized for their specific job needs, the price for the case would increase to a point of breaking a budget. However, this is not always the case. When you choose a custom case company such as Packaging Strategies Incorporated, you are able to have your case customized at a price that fits within your budget. This also means that you won’t sacrifice the overall quality of your case for a lower price.

Custom Case Mistake #2

When looking for a custom case, many pick a case with the best case scenario in mind. This means they believe their case will be transported in ideal conditions with minimal to no change in travel conditions. However, when you choose a custom case, you must consider every possible scenario that could take place during transportation. This includes:
1. Stacking
2. Altitude Changes
3. Collisions with Vehicles
4. Collisions with Cases
5. Weather Changes
6. Poor Handling
7. Chemical Exposure
8. Water Exposure

Custom Case Mistake #3

One of the final mistakes made when purchasing custom cases for your equipment is choosing cheap or ineffective materials. While plastic or wood may seem like safe materials to use for a custom case, they are actually one of the worst. When you choose a custom case, choose those created with aluminum and foam. Aluminum is known to be both water and debris resistant while also helping to maintain a safe internal temperature. Foam is used to make customizable inserts for your case to add an extra layer of protection for your 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.

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.
