I'm trying to use the iteration function in ArcGIS model-builder. To avoid overwriting the output raster, I used %Name% inline variable. But the name of my files are getting bigger and bigger overtime (I use the outputs in another set of iterations). Is there a way to select only part of the file name and not all of it?

You could try to use the model only calculate value tool to create the name you desire. This would require you to write a small bit off python to do a bit of string manipulation.
