A shim washer is a particular type of washer that is designed to fill a gap or space between two components. The washer acts as a buffer to prolong machinery lifespan and improve performance. Shim washers are made from a wide range of materials. However, metal shim washers are one of our best sellers due to their durability. The type of washer will very much depend on its intended environment.

Why do you need shim washers?
Shim washers are a great way to save on costs in an industrial setting. Rather than having two surfaces rub against each other and wear the component down, an engineer can simply use a shim washer and replace it when it wears thin. Ultimately, this can save a business thousands in machinery costs. This is because buying shims is much cheaper than replacing machinery parts or the machine itself.
