Setting the axial clearance Startseite 9 Areas of application 9 Axial clearance Precisely fitting shims for motors We know that when it comes to setting the axial clearance in motors and gearboxes, it is all about hundredths of a millimeter. Standardized solutions such as simple solid shims are usually not sufficient here. For this reason and for this area of application, we offer peelable precision shims i.e. flexibly adjustable in thickness. The individual metal foils are bonded over the entire surface and can be as thin as 0.025 mm. Fast and flexible compensation As a customer, you are free to decide whether the elements should be continuously layered with the same film thickness, or additionally equipped with a solid core. A combination of two different sheet thicknesses can also be used to make even more precise adjustment possible. With the help of a knife or a file, individual foils can be peeled off during adjustment until the required thickness is reached. When two different sheet thicknesses are combined, they are taken off on the top or bottom side of the component, depending on the adjustment requirements. Adjust the axial clearance with shims made of laminated sheet metal Shims used in adjusting axial clearance are usually rings or half-rings, and often have holes or slotted holes on the web.
