Custom Foam Cushioning 101

Custom foam cushioning will help keep your materials safe and organized.

Cushioning materials within custom cases have an important job. They keep everything within the case contained and organized, and offer a level of protection more rigid material can’t. It’s important to ensure the cushioning material in your custom case gives your cargo a snug and secure fit. To make sure that happens you need the right system with the right foam, cut to fit your needs.

Which System

The first step is to decide which system is right for your needs. Do you need a single lid case, or a double entry rack mount case? Does your work require systems integration? Different applications call for different systems, and a technician can help you find the right one for your needs.

Which Foam

The next step is to figure out what kind of foam is right for your case. Polyurethane, polyether, polyethylene, expanded polystyrene, filter foam and anti-static foam are all used in custom cases. If you don’t know much, or anything, about foam that’s ok. An engineer can walk you through the different attributes of each kind of cushioning material and help you choose the right one.

How It’s Cut

Cushioning material for custom cases needs to be cut with precision. Water-jet foam-cutting machines are used to ensure the foam is cut to the exact specifications of the order, and the material is not damaged. A water-jet foam-cutting machine allows custom case technicians to utilize CAD design software for every job.
