Eagle Stainless 2020 Updated Conference Venue & Dates

Venue: BIOMEDevice Boston – Boston Convention Center
Dates: September 16-17, 2020

biomedevice boston trade show

We are all aware of many events being canceled, postponed, and rescheduled due to COVID-19. MD&M East which was scheduled for June of 2020 at the Javits Center in New York City has been postponed to Philadelphia in August 2020. Eagle has been exhibiting at this show since the late 1980’s. Due to all of the uncertainty with travel and the virus, we will not be exhibiting at that show this year.

We have decided to stay close to home and we will be exhibiting at the BIOMEDevice show being held in Boston in September. BIOMEDevice features Design & Manufacturing New England. In addition to showcasing technologies such as 3D printing, biomaterials, and automation, a focused look at the benefits of these technologies bring for patients. The conference sessions are currently being developed and will include such topics as 3D printing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), minimally invasive surgery, surgical robotics, and more. The formats will be technical presentations, panel discussions, and case studies. To keep up-to-date with this show, click here – https://biomedboston.com/

Eagle is a critical supplier to the Medical Device industry. We have successfully remained open normal business hours during this time while monitoring local regulations and our employee’s safety.

Welded vs Seamless Stainless Steel Tubing

Stainless Steel CompositionStainless 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.

5 Factors to Consider When Selecting a Grade of Stainless Steel

Various Metal Tubes

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…)

Why Choose Stainless Steel?

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…)

What is Swiss Machining?

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 Sizes and Varieties

Stainless Steel WireStainless 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…)

Eagle Stainless Tube & Fabrication Inc Exhibiting at MD&M Minneapolis 2019

 

MDM MN 2019

 

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 Steel Surface Finishes

 

Sand Blasting

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…)

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…)
