Adjusting tolerances Startseite 9 Areas of application 9 Adjusting tolerances Minimizing tolerance deviations Tolerance is defined as the deviation of a variable from the standard state, which does not yet endanger the functionality of a machine or system. Even minor tolerance deviations in mechanical and plant engineering can lead to significant impairments in the production process. Therefore, precise tolerance compensation is very important both in the construction and maintenance of machines and production facilities. With rotating machines especially, a deviation of the tolerance is critical. Here, the connecting elements between the drive and the powered machine should be perfectly matched (e.g. shaft alignment). Adjusting tolerance with shims and adjustment shims Shims or shim elements are used to fill vertical or horizontal tolerance gaps between individual machine elements. These are available in various systems as individual sheets or as assorted assembly sets. In addition, we offer individually manufactured precision shims according to technical drawings in the materials brass, aluminum, steel, and stainless steel. Our range also includes adjustment shims made of peelable laminated sheet and peelable plastic parts.
