Aluminum is a Great Material for Custom Cases.

April 3rd, 2015

aluminum caseWe at Advanced Packaging Inc. use Aluminum to provide you with top quality custom cases that will outlast the harshest of climates and the hardest of shocks. We have been providing custom aluminum cases for over 40 years and we provide cases for military and medical personnel. So, trust us, they can take a beating so that your precious equipment doesn’t have to.

Easy to Carry

Aluminum cases are, above all, lightweight. They are much lighter than steel, so they’re easy to transport from place to place. When you need to get going quickly, then aluminum is probably for you. Admittedly, aluminum is weaker than steel, but it’s perfect for quick and easy transport. So, consider it for transporting smaller items that require a lot of travel. Larger items that are only going to be moving every once in a while may benefit from a sturdier metal for their outer case layer.

Keep it Cool

Aluminum can handle some pretty extreme temperatures so that your electronics or other equipment doesn’t have to. It can perform between -238°F to +302°F with relative ease, so you can feel comfortable taking it into the heat of the desert or the chill of the desert night. Electronics in particular are very sensitive to extreme temperatures, so having a case that protects them from heat and chill is going to make huge difference.

Welded Aluminum

Our cases are welded together for maximum durability. You don’t have to worry about screws stripping the case over time because the metals are literally melted together. They’re not going to come apart. So, travel with confidence with one of our cases. We also use unique foam inserts for extra shock-protection.

Advanced Packaging, Inc. was established over 40 years ago with the mission of engineering and delivering the highest quality shipping and cushioning systems available. Since then our worldwide customer base has grown to include those in the military, government, commercial and industrial business sectors, as well as many other industries. API’s local clients value our convenience to the Washington, DC tech corridor.

Not only do we make custom cases for every type of industry, API is also equipped with the latest in quality assurance and process control monitoring technology, including drop testing, protecting your electronic equipment from unforeseen accidents and events. Our team of craftsmen regularly build and then test a variety complex electronic assemblies.
