The uses of alignment shims

But what are alignment shims, and why are they so important for you and your machinery? Essentially, an alignment shim is a washer, or small, thin piece of appropriately chosen material designed to make parts fit more accurately, and to keep different components of a machine aligned. This alignment reduces wear, keeps things stable, and allows a machine to function to the very best of its ability. When parts are aligned, machines run more smoothly. Buzzing or vibration is decreased significantly, and parts don’t knock together or rub against each other. As such, the lifespan of the machine is increased, the machinery works faster and better, and your peace of mind is assured for longer.

Common uses of alignment shims

Some of the common uses of alignment shims include them being used in cars. For example, when changing the camber or caster of your car, you might find that you car’s wheels have misaligned over time. This happens in any machines, when they are used a lot, and it is something to keep an eye on as misalignment can cause significant problems if left unchecked. When this happens in a car or any machine, alignment shims can be inserted into the appropriate place, helping to reduce metal distortion and warping. They are also commonly used in assembly and weld fixtures to assist with general alignment and accuracy.

Stephens Gaskets produce high quality alignment shims in a wide range of sizes, from an equally wide range of different materials. These range from metals like brass and aluminium for heavy duty usage, and rubber, plastic, leather and felt for other uses. We also custom make alignment shims for more specific uses, and we can use our precision cutting techniques to ensure you get the best possible fit. As such, don’t hesitate to get in touch on 0121 544 5808 or online and talk through your needs with one of our highly experienced, dedicated workforce, who’ll only be too happy to discuss your alignment shims needs and help you come to a decision.
