When it comes to thin shim washers and other precision machined components, you can trust that as leading shim washers suppliers, here at Stephens Gaskets we know exactly what we are doing. With over forty years in the manufacturing industry, we are proud to have accumulated the skills, knowledge and experience needed to produce high quality mechanical components for a wide range of industries.


Shim Washers – What are they?

A shim washer is a small circular component that is used to fill a gap within a mechanical device. If there are gaps between different parts inside a mechanism, the risk of unwanted movement from the components is significantly increased. If movement occurs within the empty gaps, there is a high chance that the interiors could be damaged or eroded. By placing a shim washer in the gap, you are filling any unnecessary spaces, and reducing the movement of other components – therefore helping protect your project’s interior, and potentially making it safer to use.
