There are many kinds of custom cases

With over 40 years of experience designing and manufacturing quality custom cases, we at Advanced Packaging Incorporated have created thousands of different custom products. Custom cases are one of the most important investments you can make. Therefore, it is important to know how yours is designed and made. Let’s look deeper into the design and manufacturing process which we use to create one of our quality custom cases and explore some of the customization options.

Important Considerations

Before designing a custom case, it is important to know what specific purpose the case is being created for. Factors such as expected wear on the case, working conditions, humidity, temperature, fragile contents, and working life of the case all need to be considered.

Designing the Case

To begin with, you need to choose a material for your custom case. There are many factors to keep in mind. It is important to have a lighter material for your case if is to be carried around a lot while a more heavy and durable material would be selected if the case must resist jostling. Many cases are made of hard plastic with steel reinforced edges, but there are other options such as wood for temporary containers and fully welded aluminum or steel if you are in need of an extremely durable and heat resistant case. You then design the interior; many cases are filled with quality custom cut foam for carrying specific sensitive equipment, often medical or military. There are also options for general purpose carrying cases such as a sliding rack for ease of access. After the design is finalized, a computer model is made of the case to be moved into manufacturing.

Manufacturing the Case

Each custom case will have a completely different production process depending on its material and use, but regardless each will be manufactured with great quality. Each part of the case is custom made and cut to your exact specifications by our experienced and talented engineers and technicians. If your case is steel or aluminum, it is carefully welded together to be as solid as a single piece of metal. The custom case is then rigorously tested to make sure it meets our dedication to quality before it is delivered to you.
