Custom Case Construction

No single case is perfect for every application. That’s why we’ve partnered with a range of leading case manufacturers, using a range of case construction techniques.  

Our engineers are always happy to help you choose the right case for your application, and we’ve put together some information on common case construction methods to help you down the right path. 

Plastic Custom Cases

Plastic cases are either injection-molded or thermoformed from rugged, durable plastic. Plastic custom cases are often watertight, and can be made crushproof and shockproof. They can be made airtight and pressure-regulated, and can conform to a wide range of standards and certifications. 

At our factories in California and Minnesota, we customize plastic cases with custom foam interiors, mounting hardware and other customization options.   

While plastic cases are manufactured in thousands of sizes, developing custom sizes of plastic cases is usually cost-prohibitive in all but the largest quantities.

Aluminum Custom Cases

Aluminum custom cases offer a wide range of benefits. Like wood/composite cases, they can be made in completely custom sizes without tooling charges.  Like plastic cases, they can be made waterproof and sealed against environmental conditions.  

Aluminum is the ideal metal for manufacturing custom cases. It’s lightweight and very robust, while still being a comparatively affordable metal. It’s resistant to corrosion and UV radiation, and fully recyclable.    

Our custom aluminum cases are being put to use around the world in a wide range of military, aerospace, industrial, outdoor and medical applications.

Wood/Composite Custom Cases

Wood/Composite cases are made from a combination of materials. Typically, the case’s walls and structural elements are made from an ABS, fiberglass or aluminum laminate along with ACX or other high-grade plywood. The case’s corners and hinges are made from aluminum and joined with rivets and high-grade hinges. 

Wood/Composite custom cases can be manufactured in many custom sizes at low, medium or high quantities. We partner with leading wood/composite custom case manufacturers to offer custom sizes, then complete the customization process at our factories in California and Minnesota.
