We have completed a Custom CNC PE Foam job for a customer with a very unique and important product to securely fit into our A036 Aluminium Flight Case.

The items that will be placed into the custom PE Foam are precision scientific strain and stress sensing instruments & accessories used for the scientific industry. These are high-value items that need secure protection from scratches and bumps, whilst being presented in an organised fashion.

Combining a practical Tool Box with a heavy-duty Flight Case, the D001 Drawer Case offers a smart and unique design with 2 pull out, sliding drawers. Ideal for storing hand tools, power tools, electronics, fishing equipment, DIY equipment, hair and beauty products and much more.

For comfortable manoeuvrability, there is a heavy-duty soft-grip handle on top of the case and a great feature of this case is that the drawers are locked into place when the lid is closed, which removes any doubt that the drawers will unexpectedly slide open when transporting your storage case. Draw bolt catches are fitted to the case with padlock loops (padlocks sold separately here) and an egg foam lid is included for extra internal protection. Reinforced Corners feature for added durability when knocked against hard surfaces.

The dimensions for this Drawer Case are:

• Overall External Dimensions: (L) 295 x (W) 427 x (D) 285mm

• Base Internal Dimensions: (L) 280 x (W) 407 x (D) 82mm

• Drawer Internal Dimensions: (L) 262 x (W) 348 x (D) 39mm

There are more than 9 billion WIFI devices in the world and everyone is looking for the strongest & fastest connection speed, and it’s about to get a lot faster. However, the next generation of WIFI (known as WIFI 6) isn’t just about simply boosting the speed. It brings more benefits for our future-facing upgrades designed to make sure our internet speeds don’t suddenly decrease in a few years’ time. The new WIFI 6 is starting to arrive this year, and there’s a good chance it’ll be inside your latest technologies at home and at work.

A new naming system, from the WIFI Alliance, identifies WIFI generations by a numerical sequence making it much easier to understand the technology on offer:

• Wi-Fi6 are devices that support 802.11ax technology

• Wi-Fi5 are devices that support 802.11ac technology

• Wi-Fi4 are devices that support 802.11n technology

But how fast is WIFI 6? The short answer is 9.6 Gbps which is up from 3.5 Gbps on WIFI 5. However, both of these speeds are ‘in theory’ the maximums and which you’ll be unlikely to reach in real-world WIFI use, bearing in mind the typical download speed is just 72 Mbps. The good thing is that this 9.6 Gbps doesn’t have to go to a single computer, it can actually be split up across a whole network of devices, resulting in more potential speed for each device. There are two key technologies speeding up WIFI 6 connections: MU-MIMO and OFDMA.

It's not just lightning speeds though, WIFI 6 also allows routers to communicate with more devices at once, lets routers send data to multiple devices in the same broadcast, lets WIFI devices schedule check-ins with the router, improves battery life of your devices and better security.
