Stainless steel slotted shims are one of our most popular precision machined components here at Stephens Gaskets. Our shims are all produced to the highest of qualities, using only the finest of materials and resources to ensure consistent quality throughout all of our products. Stainless steel however, is an extremely common choice of material to work with, due to its high strength and durability factors. Here at Stephens Gaskets, leading stainless steel shim suppliers, we are proud to work with the popular material, in order to create reliable shims that won’t let our customers down.
Stainless Steel Slotted Shims – What are they?
Stainless steel slotted shims are small mechanical components, specifically designed to be fitted inside the interior of a machine. Often, small gaps can occur between separate interior components, which leaves room for unnecessary movement. If the parts inside the device move around too much, they can cause interior damage, and jeopardise the safety of the device. Fitting a stainless steel shim inside the machine creates a tighter fitting alignment within the components, reducing the risk of movement and wear and tear.
Why use Stainless Steel?
Stainless steel is a material that guarantees long lasting strength and durability each and every time. The material is highly resistant to rust, corrosion and impact, making it a perfect material to use in machinery. Being weatherproof and boasting a high impact resistance allows the shim to be used in a wide range of working environments without the worry of jeopardising the component’s properties or performance. Using stainless steel for slotted shims creates a product that offers a strong and reliable performance which stands the test of time.
