Stereo line mixer

Specialized Products Custom Foam Inserts

Case-securing foam
Specialized Products
Custom Foam Inserts: Once a customer has selected an SPC case to fit his requirements (size and type), SPC will then custom build the secure tool or equipment inserts for an exact fit from a variety of high-quality foam type options. Tools and test equipment, which can also be purchased through SPC, are carefully measured and specified for precise die-cut mounting to ensure a firm and secure fit in the foam inserts. In selecting their custom foam tool inserts, SPC customers can choose from soft polyurethane and denser, more rigid polyethylene foam. Options include cross-linked polyethylene, anti-static and military-grade foam with a choice of density and thickness. SPC can help in selecting the best foam-type for a specific application. Once specifications are provided and a layout created, the die-cut process stamps custom-shaped steel rules through the foam. A test sample is provided to ensure expectations are met. Upon approval, SPC processes the order -- usually within two weeks with a 25-piece minimum.
