Tn this case study, we will explore how Advanced Packaging Inc (API) engineered and manufactured a custom military case with foam inserts to safely and effectively transport a laptop and various accessories to their final destination. This project highlights the importance of custom foam inserts in protecting valuable equipment during transit.
Custom Military Case with Foam Inserts
Advanced Packaging Inc was approached by a client with a unique challenge. They needed a robust and customized solution for transporting sensitive equipment, including a laptop and various accessories, in a military context. The client required a case that could withstand the rigors of military operations while ensuring the safety and security of the equipment inside.
The Benefits of Custom Foam Inserts for Miltary Cases:
Custom foam inserts play a crucial role in safeguarding equipment during transportation. Here are some key benefits of using foam inserts in military cases:
- Precise Protection: Foam inserts are precisely shaped to provide full support to equipment, ensuring a snug fit that minimizes movement during transit.
- Shock Absorption: The foam inserts are rigid enough to carry the weight of the equipment while being soft enough to cushion items against impact. They absorb and dissipate the energy from any impact, protecting the contents.
- Preventing Contact: Individual items within the case are separated by custom-cut foam niches, preventing them from coming into contact with each other. This isolation prevents damage caused by items shifting during transport.
- Vibration Damping: Foam inserts also protect equipment against prolonged vibration, which can lead to damage over time.
- Added Protection: In cases of powerful impacts, the foam inserts decelerate the items before they can make contact with the case's interior, ensuring maximum protection.
Choosing the right foam density and rigidity is essential to ensure that the contents of the case are fully protected. Thicker foam provides more room for deceleration after an impact but may require a larger case.
How Are Foam Inserts Made?
To create custom spaces in foam inserts for individual objects, CNC machining is often used. This precise process ensures that the foam perfectly matches the dimensions of the items to be protected. This not only protects the equipment but also makes it easy to find and identify items within the case.
Custom Foam Inserts Help To Create a Professional Look
Foam inserts not only provide protection but also offer an elegant way to showcase a brand. Different colors, two-tone foam, logos, and text can be incorporated into the foam inserts, helping to enhance a brand's identity alongside its products.
