The Uses Of Alignment Shims

Why are alignment shims 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. Additionally, it helps to keep different components of a machine aligned. Therefore, reducing wear, keeps things stable as well as, allows a machine to function to the best of its ability. So, when parts are aligned, machines run more smoothly.

By using an alignment shim or washer, buzzing or vibration is decreased significantly and parts don’t knock together or rub against each other. Consequently, this vastly improves the lifespan of the machine, the machinery works faster and better and you have peace of mind that everything is working effectively.

Common Uses of Alignment Shims

Alignment shims are regularly used in the automotive industry with one example being when you change the camber or caster of your car; here you might find that you car’s wheels have misaligned over time.

This happens in any machine when it is used often 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, an alignment shim can be inserted into the appropriate place in order to help reduce metal distortion and warping.

They are also commonly used in assembly and weld fixtures to assist with general alignment and accuracy.
