At Stephens Gaskets, we are a shim cutter manufacturer producing a wide variety of pre-cut shims and custom shims, in a number of materials, densities and sizes.


Shim Cutter West Midlands

For anyone who is unaware, pre-cut shims play a crucial role in ensuring that machines operate to their most efficient capacity, especially those machines that work at high speeds. For machines able to operate at such speeds, custom shims help to fill the space between the components, to make sure the mechanisms are well aligned. This helps to prevent unnecessary vibrations and wear and tear on the machinery.

As a shim cutter, we makes sure our pre-cut shims, such as laser-cut shims, to enable our customers’ machines to operate smoothly and to increase the machine’s productivity and lifespan.


Custom Shims

Our custom shims are very often thin slithers of material and most businesses are unaware of their importance. Most components of machines in a manufacturing plant are seldom made perfectly, so our shim packs are ideal for ensuring that both the machines and the business operate perfectly.

Regardless of whether the job is small or large, as the UK’s premier shim cutter we supply our customers with the right material to do the job properly.


Bespoke Manufacturing

These wafer thin, pre-cut shims come in a range of different materials such as steel, brass, copper, aluminium. plastic, and even leather and rubber. As a shim cutter we offer the standard shim packs, which involves pre-cut shim packs, or more bespoke products such as laser-cut shims, for customers who have more complex requirements often with small, intricately designed machines. But large or small, we cater for all sizes and all budgets.
