What are shim washers?

Shims are thin pieces of metal material often used as compensators to fill in small gaps between objects aligning parts. As a result, reducing wear and absorbing tolerances between components. A key benefit of precision shims is their ability to reduce manufacturing time and costs. Moreover, they eliminate the need for each component to be machined in order to achieve the correct fit and function of the overall assembly.

At Stephens Gaskets we offer custom shim washers in a variety of metal materials including but not limited to:


The application you are working with will determine the ideal material. Each one offers specific benefits including corrosion resistance, wear resistance and more. There are also a number of finishing options too. For example, shims designed to protect against particular environmental conditions, such as exposure to salts and corrosives, humidity and galvanic corrosion.

Furthermore, everything we offer is designed and manufactured in-house. Therefore, we have complete control over lead-time and quality. This also means we are fully equipped to create low, medium and high volumes.

The importance of shim washers

Shim washers fill the gaps between parts within devices. As a result, they play a very important role when it comes to your equipment and its lifespan. What is the problem with gaps? Gaps can damage the machinery through moving parts. Leading to unnecessary wear and tear. Washers are used to fill these excess gaps, therefore preventing unwanted movement. Additionally, creating tighter fitting parts and enhancing the performance and lifespan of the machine.
