At Stephens Gaskets Ltd we are manufacturing specialists in shim steel, bespoke shims and a range of other manufacturing components. Time and time again we provide excellent client service and tailored projects specific to the needs of our clients.
A shim is a narrow piece of material (often metal), used to fill gaps between manufactured components and provide a better fit or level surface. Our shims are available in a range of materials, namely, rubber, felt, plastic, fabric, leather, aluminium, brass, copper, steel and stainless steel.
All of our shims, including our shim steel and other pressed parts are ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001 accredited. This ensures that we are consistently providing our customers with the highest quality of goods.
Shim Steel – Manufacturers vs. Hands?
Pre-cut shim steel has many benefits compared to hand cutting your own shims. Firstly, by making use of a manufacturer you will save yourself a great deal of time. Secondly, the quality of the product will be of the highest precision quality and thickness, as it can be manufactured using state of the art equipment and highly skilled technicians. The shim steel thickness will be undistorted and consistently even throughout. This is particularly important when safety is a concern, as professionals will assure you that the shims will perform as designed.
Why Is Stephens Gaskets Ltd Special?
