Filling horizontal gaps

Filling gaps between components

For the precise adjustment of machines and components, as well as for exact tolerance adjustment, we offer our customers shims and underlays made of sheet metal and plastic. The underlay shims and precision shims can be placed precisely between the components, or between the machine base and the substrate,.

The adjustment process can be carried out very flexibly without having to remove the individual machine components. A distinction is made between filling horizontal and vertical gaps.

Shim washers to fill horizontal gaps

To fill horizontal gaps between individual components, we manufacture shim washers individually according to your specifications and drawings. As a rule, such shims are made of individual metal sheets, or peelable laminated metal sheet, or plastic. The standard materials for shims are stainless steel, steel, aluminum, and brass. We can also produce peelable parts as light and easily peelable plastic shims.

  • Individual sheets available from 0.050 mm
  • Laminated sheet available from 0.025 mm
