Using Shims

Shims are used in all sorts of pieces of machinery, and they are a cost-effective solution for three main aspects; tolerance compensation, precision alignment, and wear compensation.

Reducing Wear and Tear

A nickel shim is a thin piece of nickel (often in a circular shape) which has been designed to fit in between components inside a piece of machinery. Over time, components inside machines can get worn away, which can have an impact on the alignment. With loose fitting components, the risk of wear and tear is much higher, and if left for too long, can severely impact the performance and lifespan of the machine. By fitting in a nickel shim, you can achieve a tighter fitting alignment, protecting the components from moving around too much and causing unnecessary damage. What’s more, nickel shims are much cheaper to replace than an actual part inside a machine, so if the nickel shim does bear some damage after a while, it will still be more cost-effective to replace.

We can supply shims in a wide range of materials and metals, in order to meet as many client and industrial demands. Our nickel shims are made of the highest quality material, making them suitable for many different industrial applications.
