Military Custom Case

Foam inserts are one way a military custom case can protect your delicate cargo.

Whenever essential equipment needs to be shipped to members of the military, it is crucial that the cargo does not arrive damaged in any way. Damage to the equipment during transport could end up proving fatal. Service members may be under fire or in a critical situation where the success of the mission depends on the successful delivery of this equipment. If the equipment is malfunctioning when it reaches its destination, it could quite literally be a matter of life and death. When you need to ship equipment and keep it protected from damage, the best course of action is to ship it with a military custom case. The interior of this case can be designed to accommodate any need your equipment requires.

Custom Case Load Spreader

A load spreader reduces the strain on the materials that a custom case is made of.

If you have a heavy cargo that needs to be transported in a custom case, you may be thinking about the human toll required for its transportation. Certainly, when possible, custom cases loaded with cargo need to be light enough to be able to be handled by humans or machinery. But you may not be thinking about the toll that heavy cargo can put on the custom case itself. Stress is defined as the measure of a load divided by area, and this stress can damage even the toughest materials. For very high payloads that need to be transported in a small area, a load spreader may be the solution. (more…)

TSA-Approved Locks Airplane

Any cases you may have that incorporate locks need to be approved by the TSA in order to be checked into an airline. Learn here how to incorporate these locks.

Regardless of what you are transporting or shipping in your custom cases, you should make sure that the locks are TSA-approved. Almost 2/3 of people drop off baggage and cases before boarding their flights, and depending on the size of the cases you bring to trade shows, you might be one of them. If you don’t incorporate TSA-approved locks into your case design, they will find a way in, even if it means cutting off the lock or irreparably damaging your custom case. (more…)

Removable Racks Can Make Equipment Exchange Simple

Custom Case With Removable Racks

Removable racks can make your equipment exchange much easier in a less than ideal environment.

Even the most flexible technician can have trouble installing electrical equipment in a rack mount case. Generally, connections in the rear are made before mounting the unit inside the rack. However, it usually happens that cables bunch up behind the equipment and preventing it from sliding it into place properly. You then need another set of hands to draw the cables out gently while the hardware is pushed in, only once this is done can the securing screws be inserted. It’s tough enough to do in optimum conditions, so imagine how difficult it is to do in the field, potentially in low light conditions, with no help! Removable racks can help make this task much easier and is a great solution. Is a rack mount case equipped with removable racks the right case for your needs? (more…)

Customizing your Military Case

Friday, October 9th, 2015

When it comes to choosing a new custom military case for transporting important military equipment, there are three things that are looked for. These three characteristics can mean the difference between damaged and undamaged equipment arriving on the frontline.

1. Rack mounts- When you are shipping important computer and electronic equipment, rack mounts are ideal for military shipping. Rack mounts allow computers and electronics to be stored neatly and efficiently during shipping, keeping them safe from the outside elements. This characteristic also includes shock absorbers so the sensitive areas of your computer are never affected by the constant movement during shipping.
2. Climate Controls- When important equipment is being shipped to the front line, there is no telling what climates the packaging may experience. Sensitive military equipment can become easily damaged by severe changes in temperature along. Equipment can also become damaged if exposed to high heats and frigid colds. Climate controls will help maintain a balanced temperature within the custom military case at all times to prevent any serious damage from taking place.
3. Foam Inserts- Customizable foam inserts not only protect your equipment, but keep your equipment organized as well. The foam helps to absorb the movement during transport while the inserts themselves provide a specific area for each piece of your equipment. This means that your equipment will be protected during shipment and can be easily assembled once it has arrived.

Packing your Military Case

Custom Military Case
When you are transporting important military equipment, a proper military case is a must. However, just having the proper case is not necessarily enough to ship your equipment safely. Taking the proper steps to ensure your equipment is packed correctly will help your equipment arrive to its destination safe and sound.

1. Before any packing is done, determine what equipment you are shipping. Take note of the size of your equipment, detachable parts, and any sensitive areas that may require more protection than the rest of your equipment.
2. Based on the size of your equipment, choose a military case that will fit the equipment properly. Choosing a military case that is too small or too large for the equipment you are shipping could cause serious damage to occur during transportation.
3. Consider the elements your equipment will face during transportation. Harsh temperatures along with wind, dust, and water can cause serious complications or damage to your vital equipment. Ensure your military case is equipped to handle these possible weather scenarios.
4. Equip your military case with custom made foam interiors to add an extra level of protection to your military equipment. Foam interiors can be made to fit comfortably within your military case and to also allow specific areas for each portion of your equipment.
5. Be aware of the materials being used in your military case. Some materials, such as cardboard, can cause unexpected static electricity, which could result in hazardous malfunctions and even explosions.
6. Once your military case has been packed, ensure the case is properly labeled. This will allow handlers to quickly and properly identify your equipment during and after transportation.
