When it comes to purchasing mechanical components, with the huge range of parts on the market it can be hard to know where to start. Here at Stephens Gaskets, leading manufacturers of quality shim washers and gaskets, our team of experts are here to help. We are extremely proud of our shim washers UK service, and can produce and stock shim washers in a wide variety of specifications; we even make DIN 125 shim washers.
Shim Washers – The Uses
Shim washers are mechanical components specifically designed to fill unnecessary gaps inside a mechanical device. Gaps which are not supposed to be there, can cause components to move around, leading to friction damage on the inside of the equipment. Shims are made with strong and durable materials in order to absorb the shock and vibrations which otherwise would be impacting other components inside the mechanism. By placing a shim washer inside the device to fill the gap, you will create a tighter fitting alignment for the components, reducing the risk of safety hazards and general wear and tear on the vehicle.
DIN 125 Shim Washers
DIN 125 shim washers are one of the most popular shim washer choices here at Stephens Gaskets. Using high quality material and shaped to DIN 125 specification, this type is perfect for surface protection and electrical insulation. Alongside our DIN 125 shim washers, we offer a wide variety of other quality precision shim washers in many different sizes, thicknesses and materials. However, we understand that sometimes customers need specific measurements, which is why our bespoke service is on-hand to meet these exact and often complex sizes through the use of our laser cutting machines.
Here at Stephens Gaskets, we strive to be a company that is always willing to go the extra mile. We are proud to offer our skills, knowledge and experience to every customer enquiry, and we will always make it our aim to provide our customers with the best possible mechanical solution. We understand that not every client will know exactly what they need, which is why we’ll happily assess every customer’s individual requirements before helping determine the most useful and appropriate component they should use for the job.
