Filling vertical gaps

Filling gaps at the machine base

For the optimal alignment of machines and components – as well as for precise adjustment of tolerances – we can supply you with shims and underlays made of sheet metal and plastic. The underlay shims and shim washers are placed between the components, or between the machine base and the substrate.

The adjustment process can be carried out very flexibly without having to dismantle the individual machine components and rework them e.g. by grinding. When filling gaps, a distinction is made between two possibilities: filling vertical and horizontal gaps.

Shims for filling vertical gaps

Standard shims are usually used to fill vertical gaps between the machine base and the substrate. These underlay shims are available from us as solid single plates, as well as edge-bonded parts under the brands peel-plate, single-plate, and vario-plate.

  • Single sheets from 0.01 to 20.00 mm thickness
  • Solid precision shims – individually or also as a set
  • Edge-bonded sheet packs – quick and easy to customize
