Shim Washer Experts

Steel Shim washers are generally used to be placed between two different components in order to fill a gap or absorb tolerances. Most shim washers are made of steel, which is particularly good at absorbing vibrations and reducing friction. This helps to preserve the faces of mating components.

Reduce Costs

Steel Shim washers are particularly useful in bringing down costs as they reduce the need for regular maintenance and repairs to equipment. This is due to the shim acting as a barrier between the two components, enabling it to take most of the force of friction. As a result, saving on the wear and tear of the main components. As shim washers are generally very inexpensive, this makes it a particularly cost-effective way to reduce maintenance costs.

Lightweight & Waterproof

Steel is a useful material for shim washers due to its unique properties. It is both lightweight and waterproof as well as being relatively inexpensive.

Shims can be finished in a number of different ways according to their environmental uses, for example exposure to chemicals or corrosives. The finishes available include zinc plating, oxide coating or anodising. We are able to provide finishes to suit all requirements.

Using and replacing shims is far more cost-effective than either performing regular maintenance and repairs on components or ensuring a perfect fit of components during the manufacturing process. This makes them very popular for a number of different applications.p>

High Manufacturing Standards

Our metal shim washers have a consistent high standard of thickness, flatness and accurate dimensions. They can also be made in over 150 different stainless steel shim grades. However, if you require a specific size of steel shim washer, our bespoke service is available to manufacture steel shims to suit the more complex requirements you may have. Our steel shim washers are made with extra chromium. This creates a chromium oxide protection, helping to prevent corrosion across the internal structure of the shim.
