What are stainless steel shims?
A stainless steel shim is a small circular component that is designed to fit inside the internal part of a device or piece of machinery. Inside a device there are many different parts which collaborate to make the machinery run properly, however if there are gaps between separate parts there is a risk of unnecessary movement. If parts inside the device begin to move around, it could potentially cause damage and wear and tear. By fitting a steel shim in place of the gap, you will create a much tighter fitting alignment and reduced the risk of unwanted movement – therefore helping improve the performance and safety of the project.
