At Stephens Gaskets, we have been a leader in shim manufacturing for over 70 years. Our highly skilled engineers and state-of-the-art equipment enable us to design, produce, and supply bespoke mechanical solutions across various industries. This blog explores our bespoke laser cut steel shim services and shim foil sizes, answering key questions potential customers may have and highlighting the benefits of our precision laser cutting technology.

The Importance of Shims in Mechanical Components

Shims are small, thin strips of material used to fill a space between two parts of a component, creating a tighter alignment. Without a proper fit, components can rub together, leading to wear and tear on the interior, which decreases the lifespan of the equipment. By fitting a shim into the space, we can prevent movement and rubbing, maintaining an untarnished interior. Laser cutting is an excellent way to create bespoke shims with precise specifications.

Laser Cut Steel to Order

At Stephens Gaskets, we produce shims in various sizes, materials, and thicknesses to ensure you get a shim that meets your exact needs. If our standard shim ranges don’t meet your requirements, our laser cut steel service can produce bespoke shims tailored to your specifications.

Laser Cut Steel Sheet: Precision and Efficiency

Our laser cutting service can cut steel and other materials into various and often intricate sizes and thicknesses to create bespoke shims and foils that meet your requirements. Laser cutting allows us to achieve flawless results quickly and efficiently, without wasting material, making it an economical method for both us and our clients.
