Metal Shims

Our precision laser cutting technology allows us to produce metal shims with tight tolerances and repeatability, ensuring that each shim is precise and accurate. We can manufacture bespoke steel shims in a variety of shapes and sizes, including custom designs to fit the specific needs of our clients.

What are Shims?

Shims are thin pieces of material used to fill gaps and spaces between two parts. They are used to ensure a proper fit between the parts, reduce vibration, and improve the overall performance of the machinery. Custom shim washers can be made from various materials, but steel shims are the most popular due to their strength and durability.

Industries Using thin laser cut shims:

The aerospace industry requires precision components for aircraft engines, turbines, and other equipment.
The automotive industry requires precision components for engines, transmissions, and other critical components.
Industrial Machinery
The industrial machinery industry requires precision components for various applications, including hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
