If you manufacture a valuable or fragile product, you want to protect it. A reliable protective flight case, able to transport any product in inhospitable climate conditions, or secure items that are vulnerable or at risk of damage, is a given.
Of course, defence manufacturers use military cases and medical supply manufacturers require specialist industrial cases, but many other companies demand robust, sometimes water-tight, aluminium cases and flight cases to send products around the world.
Sensitive equipment destined for a ship or oil platform need protection from sea and salt, so storm cases with fully protective case inserts are a must. Of course, where storm cases and foam inserts are both manufactured by the same company, the fit is more likely to be perfect. And if the protective packaging manufacturer is an authorised case manufacturer of premium world brands such as Peli cases or Explorer cases, for example, that is endorsement from the top – so they are going to be good.
Ask the manufacturer for details of the foam inserts that are going in your flight cases, aluminium cases, industrial cases or military cases, before you place your order. A top brand of case inserts like Plastazote should reassure you – again, brands such as Plastazote will only allow their products to be used by the best case manufacturers, because they are only as good as the firms that supply their products. Their select list of manufacturers have demonstrated that they have the skills and expertise to supply high quality protective cases, including waterproof cases.
Of course, flight cases, Peli cases and protective aluminium cases may not always be the solution if space is tight. In that case, a collapsible tote bin is ideal. A tote bin is robust and light, but collapses when not in use, using up minimal space. The tote bin is simply reassembled when needed, to give your fragile or valuable or product or sample the protection it needs.
So spend some time looking at the options in protective packaging. You’ve invested time and money in your product, so you need to be sure the foam insert that surrounds it, and the quality of build and the material of the waterproof case or flight case, is of the highest quality, so that your investment remains safe and sound.
