Precision Stainless Steel Cutting Services

Advancements in fabrication technology have developed dramatically in the past decades, with precision cutting and deburring services necessary to meet the demanding application requirements for components utilized in the field of medicine, electronics, semiconductors, and aerospace industries.

Deburred Metal PartsUnfortunately, as stainless steel is cut and shaped, the process creates burrs, tiny nodes, particle residue and sharp edges on the metal surface that are not only hazardous to those handling the parts, but can affect the durability of finished products if not removed. These burrs may not even be detectable or visible to the naked eye, which could make them easily overlooked. However, they are there and they must be removed. If not, burrs left on metal surfaces can severely impede the performance of components over time. They can cause issues in machining processes that result in erroneous measurements, or additional friction and wear, and even fracturing of parts. (more…)

Stainless Steel Characteristics

Steel PipesStainless steel is the name of a family of iron-based alloys known for their corrosion and heat resistance. One of the main characteristics of stainless steel is its minimum chromium content of 10.5%, which gives it its superior resistance to corrosion in comparison to other types of steels. Like other steels, stainless steel is composed primarily from iron and carbon, but with the addition of several other alloying elements, the most prominent being chromium. Other common alloys found in stainless steel are nickel, magnesium, molybdenum, and nitrogen. (more…)

How to Choose the Right Stainless Steel Grade

Grades of Stainless Steel TubingIn determining what grade of stainless steel tubing to select many factors are taken into account. The main requirement for stainless steels is that they should be corrosion resistant for a specified application or environment. Strength and fabrication characteristics are also taken into consideration. There are more than 60 grades of stainless steel. However, the entire group can be divided into four metallurgic classes. In determining what grade to select, additional mechanical or physical properties may also need to be considered to achieve the overall service performance requirements. (more…)

Eagle Conducts Customer Satisfaction Survey

customer serviceAt Eagle, our customers’ satisfaction is important to us. Our quality certifications provide customers the confidence that their product meet their specifications consistently. Over the next few months, our customers will be called or emailed to participate in our customer satisfaction survey. We have hired the Center of Marketing Research at UMASS Dartmouth (CMR) to conduct this survey on our behalf. (more…)

Are Tradeshows Still Relevant?

MD&M TradeshowIn the digital age, you would think just having a robust online presence would be enough. The cost of going to a tradeshow can add up. You have to have a tradeshow booth, graphics, travel expenses, promotion expenses and not to mention the time out of the office.

However, socially engaging with current customers and potential customers are still important. Unexpected opportunities can sometimes present themselves on the show floor that just don’t happen when we are back at the office. Interpreting an email message can sometimes be difficult since you are not able to detect the importance of the message, body language, tone etc. Some of the complex designs brought to us by our customers are best discussed one on one. Taking the time to travel to just one client across the country doesn’t always make sense. Being able to see multiple customers in one trip economically makes sense, especially if you are traveling 1400 miles from Franklin, Massachusetts to Minneapolis!

What Makes Stainless Steel Stainless?

Stainless SteelAll steel is carbon-based, but stainless steel contains chromium at 10% or more by weight. It is the addition of chromium that gives the steel its unique stainless, corrosion resisting properties. Stainless steel does not rust because its chromium content gives it passivity. The chromium forms a passive oxide film; it repairs the surface layer and prevents further corrosion. This passivating layer prevents oxygen and water from accessing the underlying metal, giving stainless steel a long lifespan. (more…)
