Stainless steel tubing is a versatile material used for structural applications. Widely used throughout numerous industrial sectors, stainless steel tubing sizes and varieties vary considerably depending on the application requirements. It is an exceptional material for builders and manufacturers alike, known for its characteristics like corrosion-resistance, strength, and low-maintenance. Stainless steel tubing’s structural applications call for exact sizing based on the OD (Outside Diameter) and WT (Wall Thickness). The variety of tubing, whether hypodermic, fractional, metric, or square tubing, depends on its specific application requirements. (more…)

25 years ago they held the first MD&M Minneapolis. A lot has changed in those years. We may even wonder if tradeshows are still relevant in this digital age. The costs of attending a tradeshow can add up and we can reach a large audience online. However, socially engaging with potential and current customers is still important. The in-person experience is essential and could not be duplicated on-line. (more…)
Stainless steels are a versatile alloy of iron widely used throughout the industrial world in countless applications. The alloy is well-known for its high corrosion resistance due to its minimum 10.5% chromium content by weight. But it is more familiar as that shiny, silver-like surface found on many household products in the bath and kitchen. (more…)
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.
Unfortunately, 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 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…)
Education at tradeshows is not limited to stopping by exhibitor booths and finding the latest innovations in the Medical Device industry. There is a lot of free content and activities offered to help with networking and solution sourcing such as lunch and learns, biological safety workshops, booth bar crawls, and career zone.

CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) machining is a manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machinery. Using this type of machine versus manual machining can result in improved accuracy, increased production speeds, enhanced safety, increased efficiency, and most of all cost savings. (more…)
The show will focus on 3D Printing, Contract Manufacturing, Design & Product Development, F&B Packaging, Injection Molding, Labels & Labelling, Materials, Robotics & Automation. There are more than 30 hours of free Expo education and conference sessions. Eagle can offer free expo hall admission that has many free activities and content and 20% off any conference; click here.

In 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…)
