About Our Shims

A shim is a narrow piece of material (often metal) that is used to fill gaps between manufactured components to provide a better fit or level surface. Our shims are available in various materials, including rubber, felt, plastic, fabric, leather, aluminium, brass, copper, steel and stainless steel. All of our shims, including our other pressed parts, are accredited by ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001. This ensures the highest quality of steel shims.

To ensure that we provide our clients with pre-cut shims that are fit for purpose, we ask for the exact measurements in shape, size and width so that we can manufacture them with complete precision. We maintain consistent excellence in client service and undergo tailored projects specific to the needs of our clients.

Manufactured Or Manual?

Pre-cut steel shims offers many benefits compared to businesses hand-cutting their own shims. Here are the main advantages:

Cutting Costs & Time

Firstly, by using a manufacturer for your steel shim packs, you will save yourself a great deal of time. Our mass-production of shims offer a quick turnaround, ensuring that our clients’ operations continuously run smoothly. This not only reduces time and manpower, a key element of manually cutting shims but energy usage too. Therefore, we save on costs, allowing our clients to.

We endeavour to produce steel shim packs using state-of-the-art equipment that is operated by highly skilled technicians.

We guarantee steel shim thickness to be undistorted and consistent throughout. This is particularly crucial when safety is a concern as you stay rest assured that shims perform as designed.
