tips for choosing the right custom case

How do you know which custom case is right for you? You do some research, and then ask an expert.

No matter what your product is, choosing the right custom case is critical to ensuring that it arrives safely and in great condition every time you ship or transport it. Here are some simple tips to help you get the right custom case for your product.

Think of the Worst Case Scenario

Nobody wants to imagine the worst case scenario actually happening, but it is critical when it comes to choosing the right custom case. Would your product be ruined by any contact with moisture or water? Make sure that you have a water-tight custom case designed with a purge valve to completely seal out moisture. Would your product suffer irreparable damage from a drop or impact? Make sure that you conduct package testing and that you design a custom case with shock protection in mind.

Think of the External Materials

Depending on your budget and your preferences, plastic or aluminum can be used as the external materials for your custom case. If your product needs to be protected from EMI or RF frequencies, opt for a case made of aluminum, as they work well at protecting from them and are lightweight. If you need something that can handle rough conditions, long shipping distances, or high altitudes, plastic will be perfect for your custom case.  

Think of the Interior Materials

Even though the outside matters, the inside matters a little bit more. Make sure that you get inserts for your custom case to protect the contents from any sudden impacts or rough handling. If you are transporting highly sensitive materials, consider using polyurethane foam for a lightweight shock protector. If you are shipping perishable goods, opt for polystyrene instead.
