Flight Case for
A specially designed lightweight flight case for the Mitsubishi CP3020 series of photo printers
"Mitsubishi Electric use System Insight Flightcases"
At System Insight we have had a special flight case designed for the CP3020DE & CP3020DA Photo Printers.
The case is designed to be lightweight, yet still very sturdy to protect the contents during transit.
It has been designed with the Event Photographer in mind and their comments and suggestions have provided input into every stage of the design process.

Major Benefits of using our Flight Case
There are many advantages to using our specially designed flight case and they include:
- 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.
- The case has been designed so that the top remains free of handles etc. enabling a laptop to be used on top of the case or an ideal position for your printer.
- It gives a professional look to your equipment. No longer do you have to turn up at an event with a cardboard box.
Space for the Media Tray
The Media tray is placed in the bottom of the flight case and the printer sits above the tray on high density foam blocks.
This arrangement ensures the tray is safe and secure while preventing the tray and printer from coming into contact with each other so both remain secure within the case.
There is also space inside the case for power and data cables, plus the printer manual and CD.
What - No wheels?
We have been asked on more than one occasion for flight cases with wheels on. 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 would have to be bigger to accomodate the wheel assembly.
- The wheels on a flight case would be small and as such are useless for all but the smoothest floors; (trolley wheels are much bigger).
- 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.
What our customers think of our flight cases:
The flight case that I got from System Insight for my Mitsubishi 9550 is
just the job. The case is professionally made with a good carrying balance
with the handles positioned as they are on the sides. It's also light
weight, but very solid. Having a space under the printer for cables and the
paper catcher etc makes things easier rather than having extra bags to carry
Turning up to an event is a whole lot easier and looks a lot slicker. Rather
than having a massive brown cardboard box with the printer in, I now have a
small well made professional flight case. The great thing about this case is
that it's a "plug and play". I have the cables connected to the back of the
printer all the time and the remaining cable coiled in the accessories
compartment below the printer. All I do is open the front of the flight
case, pull out the cables & plug them into my laptop, which sits perfectly
on top of the flight case, and away I go! It's all so compact and
professional. It's great.
