It covers all the features, key benefits, typical applications and even what your alternative case options are.

What are W.AG Tekno Cases?

Premium plastic cases for presenting samples

With there being so many lightweight plastic sample cases on the market, it can be difficult to choose between them.

However, one case stands out as being of particularly high quality – the Tekno plasticase range from W.AG. German designed and manufactured, if you are looking for a premium sample case, these should be your first choice.

With a range of 15 sizes available across 7 standard colours, it is easy to match your case to your brand. There are also an additional 12 colours available subject to order volume, plus contrasting catches, and the option to mix base and lid colours. This wide range of combinations allow you to specify a sample case with a striking appearance to impress your clients.

the W.AG Tekno case range have been manufactured in Germany since 1997 - an indication of their enduring popularity

The durable, single wall polypropylene construction offers a number of benefits too.

It makes Tekno cases resistant to cold temperatures, suitable for food contact and can also be recycled at the end of its life.

As such, these specific W.AG cases are perfect for presenting samples, electronic equipment, storing tool, audio visual equipment, the pharmaceutical industry and much else besides.

As well as all of this, you can source Tekno cases with foam inserts tailored to your specific tools, products or samples. Screen printing and in mould labelling also offers excellent branding potential.

All in all, W.AG Tekno moulded plastic cases are the perfect option to give your business a professional and eye-catching appearance.

Teknobag Case Features

Useful and practical features of Tekno plastic cases

Although W.AG manufacture a number of differing cases, Tekno is arguably the range with the most features built in as standard. These help to improve not only the usability of the case, but also the aesthetic potential too.

A

Ergonomic Handle: The handle on the W.AG Tekno cases is integral to the case body. Whilst this is more cost effective in terms of production, it also means that the handles are very strong and sturdy. They have also been designed and tested to ensure that they are comfortable to hold, even with relatively heavy contents within the case.

B

Stacking Feet / Pattern: The small mouldings on the face of the case are actually used for helping to stack the cases when led flat. The pattern interlocks meaning that the cases will slide off of one another, greatly improving stacking performance.

C

Durable Catches: The catches have been designed in order that they follow the lines of the case when shut, creating a sleek visual appearance. But besides aesthetics, they are also secure, strong, and long lasting.

D

Plug-in Hinges: The hinges on the W.AG Tekno cases are particularly well designed, and last over many thousands of uses.

E

Moulded Feet: The feet that are moulded into the bottom of the cases mean that the cases can be stood upright (vertically) as well as led flat. This feature is particularly useful for retail displays, and also showing off products during sales meetings.

F

Branding Area: The large, smooth surfaces on the front and back of the cases are perfect for adding adhesive labels and / or print onto directly. These areas can also have detailed, photographic images added through the process on-mould labelling (with the design effectively moulded into the case).

G

Mix and Match Base + Lid: The two halves of the Tekno cases can be mixed and matched, allowing for different colours on the base and lid. This can create some unique visual effects, as well as being used with transparent material to showcase products within.

Applications

Example uses for Tekno Cases

The versatility of W.AG Tekno cases means that they can be used for a wide range of applications. However, there are a number of areas where use of these cases is very popular, and the features lend themselves to specific applications.

Please see below for an overview of these uses / markets.

Sales Meetings

The most common use for Tekno cases in sales meetings. They are perfect for organising samples in a neat and logical manner, especially when using custom foam case inserts.

Their clean and modern appearance will make your sales team appear professional, as well as capturing the attention of your clients. This can be further enhanced through the differing colours of case available, as well as the extensive branding options (such as printing or in-mould labelling).

The cases will also provide a good level of protection for samples during transit, avoiding embarrassing situations where products are damaged during important sales pitches.

Retail / Added Value

Many retail products require a case when being sold directly to end users. Common examples include tools and sets of specific parts, although consumer electronics, first aid kits and even games / hobby items can frequently be sold in cases.

The fact that W.AG Tekno cases can be specified with clear fronts to allow visibility of the contents, or with detailed branding via in-mould labelling, means they are particularly suited to retail environments.

Service Engineers

Whilst Tekno cases are a great option for selling devices and equipment to the end users, they are also ideal for service engineers taking items out onto site.

They can provide protection for anything including specialist devices, diagnostic equipment, multimeters, tools, parts and much else besides.

And as they can be branded, Tekno cases can provide a free branding / advertising opportunity for when your field staff are working on location.

Medical Devices

Another area where Tekno cases excel is for use in medical settings. They are perfect for storing and protecting medical devises, and the Polypropylene material is also easy to clean (it is also both cold resistant and food grade approved).

Small Parts Storage

Any collection of products, parts or components can also be stored safely in a W.AG Tekno case. The range of features mean they will be well protected and easy to transport / retrieve, making them a great option for various applications and industries.
