Laser Cutting Experts And Thin Materials Specialists
Here at Stephens Gaskets, we provide many different products, from washers to shims and gaskets. It goes without saying, one of the things we’re most proud of, is our laser cutting service based in Birmingham, UK. Especially as laser cutting specialists, we can provide prototypes, samples and laser cut components for a wide range of different productions. More than that, whether you are after shims or gaskets we offer a laser cutting service with small batches or volume runs.
Thanks to our precision tooling equipment we can create bespoke shims or foil that meet our clients’ individual needs. As there are so many different shim applications, it is essential that we can manufacture them in a bespoke fashion. Not only that, but also to an extremely high standard.
So how does it work?
Basically, our process relies on highly accurate and powerful lasers, that cut custom (and often complex) sheets of metal and polymer. Therefore, creating bespoke shims (foil) to the required size and thickness. Additional benefits of using a laser cutter to create shims/foil include precision results and value for money.
Quick & Affordable
As aforementioned, this process is quick and affordable. Therefore, you don’t have to shell out a fortune to get the right shims for you.
Furthermore, it’s a very advanced method using state of the art equipment and software for perfect results. In addition, these advanced techniques ensure that no material goes to waste.
Not only does this apply to laser cut steel, but also laser cut aluminium and any other metal. With this purpose in mind, the number of shims (foil) cut from each sheet is carefully calculated, keeping the cost low for everyone involved.
