Bespoke Laser Cut Shim Foil for Any Application

What is Shim Foil?

A shim foil is a thin piece of metal used to fill gaps between components in machinery, preventing unwanted movement, friction, and dislodgement. This ensures a tighter, safer fit, enhancing the lifespan and performance of the mechanism.

Can You Laser Cut Foil?

Absolutely! At Stephens Gaskets, our high-quality laser cutting technology allows us to create bespoke shim sizes with precision. Our laser cutting services enable us to meet exact specifications, ensuring each component fits perfectly within your machinery.

High-Quality Precision Laser Cut Foil

To produce sharp and precise mechanical components, we utilise laser cut foil. This technique is ideal for cutting metals into complex and intricate shapes and sizes. Our custom laser cutting service employs powerful lasers that can cut through even the toughest metals, including stainless steel.

Laser cutting is perfect for customers requiring bespoke solutions, as it allows us to tailor products to meet specific requirements. Additionally, laser cutting is economical, as it maximises the number of components cut from the metal sheet, minimising material wastage.
