In my last two postings I reviewed equipment fragility and the influence of handling and transport on packaging design. The most common approach to protecting equipment within a carrying case, transit case or shipping case is to use foam cushioning. In this posting, I’ll provide an overview of foam materials.

For shipping and transit cases, traditional refrigeration technology is giving way to thermoelectric cooling. Here’s why: Continue reading
You can’t prevent moisture from entering an enclosure. It’s in the sealed-in air. It’s in the enclosed materials. It even permeates through the walls and seals of the enclosure. And, when a transit case is equipped with a breather for pressure equalization, air will be drawn in from outside, too. Continue reading
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) makes excellent transit cases, especially when formed by the rotational molding process. HDPE is lightweight, strong, corrosion-proof, and resistant to solvents and acids. It remains stable through a wide temperature range. Rotational molding (roto-molding for short) distributes HDPE powder over the surfaces of a mold. The mold is heated and rotated. This allows liquid HDPE to create hollow shapes with complex geometries.
SKB Cases recently began producing their newest injection molded case – the 3i-2222-12. This carrying case has the same features and benefits as other 3i Series cases. This includes Continue reading
