Are tradeshows still relevant? In 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. (more…)

All 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…)
What is the Wire EDM Process?
Wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) is a manufacturing process whereby a desired shape is obtained by using electrical discharges between an EDM wire and an electrically conductive material such as stainless steel.
ASTM International is a globally recognized standards organization that develops and publishes consensus technical standards for materials. ASTM was formed in 1898 to address the frequent rail breaks affecting the railroad industry. Originally called the “American Society for Testing Materials” in 1902, it then became the “American Society for Testing and Materials” in 1961 before it changed its name to “ASTM International” in 2001.
There are more than 60 grades of stainless steel. Stainless steel is essentially low-carbon steel that contains chromium of 10% or more by weight. It is the addition of chromium that gives the steel its unique stainless, corrosion-resisting properties. Austenitic 304 and 316 stainless steels are considered surgical or medical-grade stainless steels, they are the most commons stainless steels. The key difference between 304 vs 316 stainless steel that makes them different is the addition of molybdenum, an alloy that drastically enhances corrosion resistance, especially for more saline or chloride-exposed environments. 316 stainless steel contains molybdenum, but 304 does not.

Eagle Stainless has been audited and passed the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016 version for our quality management system.
ISO 9001 is an international standard for an organizations quality management system for any industry. These standards help to ensure consistent products to meet customers’ specifications. Eagle first received certification in 1998. Since then there have been revisions every few years.
ISO 13485:2016 is the ISO version for the medical device industry. This version was first published in 1996.
Eagle Stainless Tube & Fabrication has been producing precision metal parts since 1982. Since then Eagle has been delivering some of the most intricately formed parts imaginable. Staying on top of the latest developments and manufacturing trends has always been a priority. Robots have become faster, smarter and cheaper. Eagle’s customers in the medical, aerospace and mechanical industries demand accuracy. Robots can move efficiently while performing tasks at a consistent level of precision. Introducing the robotic arm to Eagle’s production floor to load and unload parts keeps Eagle’s customers’ parts moving and making sure they are exact.
The ovality of a tube or the difference between the maximum and minimum dimensions of the OD, is obtained by carefully measuring the high and low points at any one section of the tube. The ovality tolerance is considered to be a total spread, inside which both the maximum OD and minimum OD dimensions must fall. When a tube or pipe are bent the tube becomes more oval than round. The flattening that occurs from the bend is called the ovality and this a specification that is taken into account when calculating the bend.
One of the primary considerations in the selection of material is the corrosion resistance and one of the best materials to be selected for this reason is stainless steel due to the natural tendency of the metal to be passive. What is passivation? Passivation is the treatment of the stainless steel with an oxidizing chemical (typically nitric or citric acid) which promotes a thin oxidizing layer to form on the surface of the metal. This thin layer will help protect the metal from chemical attack. (more…)
