Stainless steel tubing is one of the most versatile metal alloy materials used in manufacturing and fabrication. The two common types of tubing are seamless and welded. Deciding between welded vs. seamless tubing primarily depends on the application requirements of the product. In choosing between the two keep in mind that first the tubing must be compliant with your project specifications and that secondly, it must meet the conditions for which the tubing will ultimately be used.

Stainless steel is a commonly used material in applications ranging from medical instruments or chemical storage to transport or power generation because of its high corrosion resistance, hygiene, and strength. While there are more than 3,500 grades of steel, not all grades are created equally. (more…)
Eagle stocks both seamless and welded stainless steel tubing for a variety of applications requiring strength, corrosion resistance and/or heat resistance. The unique characteristics of stainless steel means different types are better suited for different applications. Some of the factors to consider when choosing the right grade are: (more…)
Swiss machining is a manufacturing technique that offers specialized tool cutting designed to turn metal stock into complex, slender or delicate components which require tight tolerances. Swiss machining generally refers to the Swiss designed CNC operated lathe that turns parts in a radial motion as it cuts the workpiece. The process is not only cost-effective, but it presents increased precision over other similar methods. (more…)
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…)
