Imperial Shim Washers are designed to take up excess gaps in machinery or assemblies, providing a buffer which can ensure the smooth operation of the machinery. They are often fitted over shafts to take up excess space and are usually manufactured to very precise dimensions, which can be crucial to ensuring that the shim washers do the job they’re designed to do.
Imperial Shim Washers at Stephens Gaskets
We can manufacture imperial shim washers, or alternatively, to metric specifications, with excellent tolerance levels. We don’t just provide standard sizes, either — we can work to very specific bespoke measurements, with non-standard precision sizing being our particular speciality. We don’t have a minimum order level either, so no batch size is too small. We deal with large and small quantities equally and easily.
Imperial Shim washers are available in a number of different materials, with the specific type of material being dependent on its final use. Rubber, for example, is ideal as a waterproof and relatively malleable material, whereas copper is better if you need a washer which is conductive and a fairly soft metal. For uses where dampening and impact protection is required, cork washers can be the best option.
Whatever type of washer material you require, we can usually offer it. Our range includes aluminium, brass, copper, cork, klinger, neoprene, nitrile, novus, rubber, spring steel, stainless steel, mild steel and turned washers, each of which has their own particular set of attributes and advantages. If you’re unsure as to which material would be best for your specific project, give our team a call and they’d be happy to advise you on what would be best.
As we’re based in the West Midlands, we’re able to serve all corners of the country easily, and can ensure that your order is with you as quickly as possible. Putting the customer first is at the very centre of our ethos, and we’ve been manufacturing a range of quality pressed parts since 1947 — that’s almost 70 years. In addition to this, we’re ISO accredited and recognised worldwide for our dedication to service and quality.
