Shim washers explained
A shim washer is a small circular component that is used to fill spaces between mechanical parts. Gaps can often occur between components inside a device, but this can sometimes lead to corrosion and wear and tear from moving parts. By filling the space with a shim washer, you can create a tighter fitting alignment between the mechanical parts and prevent room for movement. The implantation of a washer can help increase the longevity of your mechanical device, and also save you money on replacement part costs. Our shim washers here at Stephens Gaskets are made in a wide variety of sizes, dimensions and materials – one of our most popular choices being the laminated washers.
Laminated shim washers at Stephens Gaskets
Our laminated shim washers are made to the highest quality and value and are extremely competitively priced. In order to ensure we can meet your exact requirements with them, we stock the components in many different thicknesses and measurements. The many layers that laminated shim washers have mean that you can tailor the component to the desired thickness yourself by peeling back however many layers needed. The layers are bonded together using either a metal foil or another composite that has been bonded, which means the component will have a rigid and strong structure that is guaranteed to offer a high performance. The bonded layers make laminated shim washers ideal for machine environments.
Bespoke shim washers
Meeting every individual requirement is vital to us which is why we aim to offer a versatile range of products and variations to our customers. However, we understand that sometimes you might be looking for a specific non-generic measurement for your component – and we’ll be happy to accommodate these requirements too.
