What are pre-cut shims?

Putting it simply, pre cut shims, are fantastic components that are specifically designed to be fitted within machinery. The interior of any machine is made up of several parts that simultaneously work together to run the application. When one of these parts undergoes too much wear and tear or simply becomes loose at the fixing point, you must replace parts or for a more effective solution, fit a shim to resolve the issue.

By pre-cutting shims, we offer a universal solution to common problems that arise within machinery. With several sizes and shapes available, we can provide you with the answer; this is with ease and without a design process.

What can pre cut shims achieve?

Pre cut shims are essential for any machine that holds a fixable fault such as gaps between two components or unnecessary vibrations when in use. Applications that involve high-speed mechanistic movements especially rely on these elements to bridge gaps for accurate alignment. Consequently, the machine runs as it should without chugging or unwanted shifting.

Furthermore, pre cut shims are trusted to greatly minimise vibrations that are caused by misalignment and gaps. By resolving the above, energy wastage is dramatically reduced. When a machine is at fault, chances are it’ll be using more power for its purpose. When fixed properly with a pre-cut shim, it’ll continue to perform optimally.

Why should your business invest in pre cut shims?

Pre cut shims are an excellent and affordable solution to many mechanical faults. While we offer competitive pricing, pre cut shims continuously save on costs. Maintenance and in extreme cases, replacement of machinery can eat into a company’s budget massively. With that in mind, pre cut shims offer a long-term solution to such a problem. Machines continue operating productively for years, offering complete peace of mind to users.
