Characteristics of a Packaging Company

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

When you are looking for a packaging company to create your new custom equipment cases, you don’t want to choose the first name you hear of. It is essential to conduct research of a packaging company to determine if they are the right fit for your needs. If you choose the wrong packaging company, your equipment could be left damaged, and your budget could be left empty. Instead of choosing a name from a hat, look for a few different characteristics to determine if the packaging company is right for you.
Packaging-Company

The first characteristic to consider in your packaging company is their reputation. Ask to see some of their past work and if they have ever worked on any major projects. You should also ask for a list of references. If the company is unwilling to provide you with the information, it can be a clear sign that their reputation is less than desirable.

A packaging company should also be able to provide you with a customized case that suits your needs. They should be able to provide you with a list of options to help create a case that meets all of your needs.

A reliable packaging company should use quality materials to create their products. Low quality materials may seem cheaper in the initial price, but could lead to serious costs in damages to your equipment.
A packaging company is only as strong as its staff. When you visit with a potential packaging company, talk to different members of the staff. By talking to staff, you can get a sense of the work that is done along with the knowledge and skill the hired staff contains.

Do I Need a Foam Interior?

Friday, February 6th, 2015

When it comes to creating a custom case for your military or medical case, customers are often provided with a number of options. These options can include the size of the case, the material used to make the case, and even what can be included inside the case. One of the more commonly found options for a custom case is foam interior. While a foam interior may seem like an unnecessary addition to your case, many fail to realize how essential a foam interior can be.

Foam-Interior

A foam interior can first and foremost protect your expensive and sensitive equipment. The foam interior can help to absorb any shock and harsh movements that can occur while the case is being transported, which helps prevent serious damage from occurring. Without a foam interior, the inner workings of your equipment could become compromised due to movement during transportation. A foam interior can also help keep your equipment organized. You can create an interior that provides a specific compartment for each piece of your equipment to ensure each piece has its place. This can also help decrease the time spent trying to reassemble your equipment once it has reached its destination. A foam interior can also help balance and maintain the temperature within your case. Should your custom case pass through extreme heat or chill, your equipment will be unaffected thanks to the surrounding foam. A foam interior can also help prevent any outside elements, like dirt or dust, from reaching your equipment as well.

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.

Custom Aluminum Cases Benefit Protection of Contents

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Custom Military Case
Military equipment is sensitive and expensive, and thus requires the best care that can be offered. In addition to damage from simply breaking during transit, the equipment needs to be covered by sturdy materials for protection from weather and other unpredictable events such as electronic disruption. Aluminum cases can fit the needs of military transport in many different ways ranging from protective strength to cost effectiveness. Even civilian aluminum cases serve better than other materials because of its general ability to provide the best care for its contents.

Strength is Everything

Aluminum is a powerful metal in terms of durability. While most people may think of aluminum as weak due to the ease with which aluminum foil tears, you should bear in mind that aluminum foil is specifically made to tear in order to be easily utilized in the home environment. When it comes to field protection, the aluminum Is developed in a way that encourages strength instead of removes it. Cases made from aluminum of protection grade are sturdier than plastic and do not corrode as easily or visibly as iron and steel cases. In addition, they weigh less, allowing for easier carrying and, when shipped in bulk, a lighter overall cargo load. These benefits allow aluminum to surpass other materials in terms of effectiveness and overall look. Furthermore, the cost performance of aluminum is higher than other cases due to its flexibility during fabrication. Aluminum cases come in many different sizes with the capacity to hold a large number of objects. The efficiency with which aluminum performs makes it ideal for all uses, but especially military and medical use where fragile and sensitive contents become highly vulnerable during transport into volatile scenarios where every piece of equipment matters.

The Custom Option

The biggest value for an aluminum case is the range of customization options available to the purchaser. As mentioned, aluminum is a flexible material during production. This allows for greater freedom when shaping the material and hence why most cars and airplanes are made of aluminum. Easy cutting, especially with the many advances in computer-aided crafting, makes aluminum ideal for shaping to the slightest detail. In addition, aluminum cases can be fitted with a wide array of interior details such as felt, foam, or plastic. Since aluminum doesn’t decay very easily, the material inside won’t suffer from corrosion on the outside and will remain protected in the most difficult environments. The combination or external protection and internal adaptability makes this kind of casing even stronger in extreme situations. Cases can even be painted and marked in order to identify which branch of any given organization it belongs to. Aluminum cases share strength, but can be visually diverse in order to quickly identify which case contains what materials in the field.

Properly Packing a Military Case

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

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.

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.

Customizable Military Cases

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

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.

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.

Custom Case Materials: What to Use

Friday, November 14th, 2014

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.

Why you Need a Tough Military Case

Friday, October 31st, 2014

When it comes to providing cases for the military, not any old case will do. Some may believe that any custom case can be used for a number of jobs, but that is not necessarily true. Certain equipment, such as military equipment, requires a stronger type of case that can handle the job of a military operation. A custom military case should be an aluminum case fitted with custom foam or cushion interiors. This will keep the equipment safe from the inside out.
Custom Military Case

Some may still not believe that a tougher military case is necessary, but there are several reasons why a tough military case is imperative for the job.

1. There is never time for equipment malfunction. If your military case is unsuccessful at protecting your equipment, damage could be done during transportation. Time is precious when you are on the front line, which means any time wasted trying to fix equipment damage could be detrimental. Equipment malfunctions that are caused by damage without the knowledge of the individual using the equipment can be extremely dangerous as well.

2. You are sending your equipment into a dangerous area. The military case you choose to transport your equipment in must be able to handle the harsh conditions it is being sent to. Damage can occur from debris, water, and enemy fire along with a number of other potential threats in the battlefield and front line.

3. If your case should become damage beyond repair, there is a great chance that a replacement case will be unavailable. The dangerous conditions of the battlefield paired with the desolate locations they take place in make receiving materials difficult.

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.
