Bespoke Laser Cut Shim Foil For Any Application
What Is Shim Foil?
A shim foil is a thin piece of metal used to fill the gap between two other working components. Often inside machinery and other mechanical devices, the gap between two different components can cause unwanted movement. This can lead to friction and dislodgement and decreasing the lifespan of the mechanism. Therefore, by placing a shim foil in place of the gap, you will reduce unnecessary movement. Also creating a tighter and safer fitting alignment.
