What is a shim washer?
A shim washer is small and rounded piece of material which is designed to fit into a mechanical device. It acts as a preventative to movement and loose alignment issues and can decrease the risk of damage to the inside of the machinery. Inside machinery there are many different components which make the mechanism work but if there is a gap between two components, there is space for unwanted movement. If components are moving around more than they should be inside a device, there is a risk of parts hitting into each other or the interior of the device and causing friction damage. Repeated incidents of movement can lead to long-term wear and tear which could jeopardise the safety and performance of the machinery. By fitting precision shim washers in place of these gaps, you are leaving no room for movement and creating a tighter fitting alignment.
