Flightcases for your equipment
What better way to protect your valuable equipment than a professional flight case. All of our lightweight flight cases are specifically designed for your printer.
Our custom made lightweight cases where ut is practicable are designed so that the printer can be used in the case with the power and USB cables remaining fixed whilst the printer is installed inside the case.
The carrying handle on the side facilitates easy carrying and a flat top allows placement of a laptop or display screen. The case often also has a space underneath the printer for cable, output tray and trimmings catcher.
Major Benefits of using our Flight Cases
- The printer can often be used inside the case with cables left connected to the printer, which means that you can turn up to an event and start printing within minutes.
- Printer and associated parts are protected from damage during use and transit.
- The case is lightweight and can easily be carried using the spring-loaded carrying handles on the side of the case.
- It gives a professional look to your equipment.
- Handles have been placed slightly off-centre to ensure the weight is evenly distributed whilst carrying.
What – No wheels?
We have been asked for flight cases with wheels. We have tried wheels on cases before and decided against this for the following reasons:
- The price difference between a Flight Case with wheels and the same case without, is about the same price as buying a lightweight fold-up trolley which can be used for all your equipment.
- The flight cases have to be bigger to accommodate the wheel assembly and pull-along handle.
- The wheels on a flight case are small and as such are useless for all but the smoothest floors, whereas trolley wheels are much bigger and can cope with the outdoors better.
- Flight cases with wheels weigh much more and still need lifting out of your car.
- Having wheels on a flight case means that they are less stable in your vehicle because they slide about (and take up more space because they’re bigger).
- A handle is needed on a flight case to pull a wheeled case along the ground, this needs to be quite strong, (unlike standard laptop bag trolleys) due to the weight of the printer, which again adds to weight, size and cost.
