Custom Case Design

We are an engineering-centric organization and pride ourselves on our ability to design cases and cushioning to protect the most sensitive equipment from damage in the roughest of environments.

From closed cell to anti-stat foam, from shock mounts to rack mounts – we’ve done it all.  We understand product fragility and can design the right shock-absorbing system to protect your equipment and hold up to repeated abuse.

Custom options include custom foam inserts, thermoformed inserts, shock mounts, literature pockets, mounting flanges & brackets, black hardware, automatic pressure relief valve (PRV), humidity indicators, desiccant and desiccant storage, standard fed colors, custom colors, hinged compartments, case wall cutouts, name plates, mold-in graphics, stencil marking, and removable lid.
