Building the Right Custom Case

If you are a frequent traveler, it is necessary to have an adequate case that will protect your valuable equipment.  Custom carrying cases are the best tool for protecting items of all shapes and sizes. These cases are the ideal form of packaging that can enhance presentation, organization, and protection of important merchandise. Cases can hold goods of all shapes and sizes, ranging from computers, to medical equipment, or even fire arms.  The best way to protect a fragile good is to shield it in a case that is precisely shaped to match specifications. You can start customization with easy steps.

Most companies that sell custom carrying cases that have the ability to match dimensions of all items. The first step towards building the perfect custom case is to select a case design and input specific dimensions. You want to have a case big enough to hold your items; if it is too big, your items will not fit snugly. Measure the dimensions of your items by length, width, and height. A case will have to accommodate all of those factors.

The next step is to choose what type of material that the outside of your case is made from.  There are many different options to choose from, and each different material has negative and positive attributes. Wooden cases provide the most aesthetically pleasing finish, and are mostly used by people who need to have a high level of presentation. Problematically, these cases can become damaged if they drop, and aren’t waterproof. Blow molded, plastic cases are more rugged than their wooden counterpart, and can be made to withstand significant drops. There are also metal cases available, that are extremely rugged and durable, but often weigh more than the average custom case.

After you have chosen the outside of your case, it is time to pick a specific foam insert. You can design your own foam insert, or have one professionally shaped.  There are many benefits for designing your own foam insert. First, it is a good, custom solution for low volume orders, and can be the perfect option for those with a new prototype or design. It is also best for those who want to visualize their case as soon as possible.

Professionally designed inserts have more complex geometry and typically require friction fits.  The most apparent benefit of professional designed foam inserts is that experts manufacture them.

If you are interested in learning more about custom carrying cases, blow molded cases, or how they are designed, it is best to contact a local manufacturer.
