When it comes to purchasing mechanical solutions, it is important to have a clear idea in mind of what you need. Purchasing an item that is different to what you actually require can lead to ill-fitting components that could potentially jeopardise the safety of your device or project.
Here at Stephen’s Gaskets, we appreciate that not everyone who needs a shim washer, is going to be an expert in the area; luckily, we’re here to help. As leading shim washers manufacturers, we have accumulated plenty of knowledge on shim washers and their applications, and using this wide understanding, we can help assess your project and its requirements, in order to find a shim washer that is perfect for the job you need it to do.
The uses of Shim Washers
The primary use of a shim washer is to fill the gap between two separate components to prevent them moving around and causing wear and tear on the device interior. Loose fitting alignments can cause unwanted rattling sounds within the device and can also cause the different pieces to collide into each other – potentially leading to internal damage inside your project. By fitting shim washers into the space, you are creating a tighter fitting alignment, and therefore reducing any risks associated with ill-fitting components.
