Adjustment shims for filling gaps

Shim washers are used to fill gaps between components in turbines, gearboxes, pumps, etc. as well as horizontal gaps between individual machines. These individual shims are precisely matched to the individual components. As a rule, such shims are made of either solid sheet metal, laminated sheet metal, or peelable plastic.

  • The minimum sheet thickness for single sheets is 0.05 mm and usually reaches up to 20 mm (out). Thicker sheets are possible on request.
  • Laminated metal sheet and layered plastic are available with foil thicknesses from 0.025 mm. The total thickness of parts made of laminate is variable, and can be implemented up to 20 mm.
  • The standard materials for metal shims are stainless steel, steel, aluminum, and brass.

Individual shim washers

Shim washers made of individual sheets for filling gaps are manufactured according to drawings in the required sheet thicknesses.

The standard materials for metal shims and underlays are stainless steel, steel, aluminum, and brass. Sheet thicknesses for single sheets range from 0.01 mm to several millimeters.

Shim washers from laminated sheet

Shim washers made of laminated sheet consist of several layers of thin metal foils that are bonded together over their entire surface.

They are used to fill gaps between parts and machine components. The thickness of laminated sheet can be varied by peeling off individual sheets, and can therefore be flexibly adapted to the gap size.

Shim washers made of plastic

Plastic shims are manufactured in polyimide or polyester, and are available as individual parts as well as laminated parts.

An enormous advantage over metal parts here is the low weight. Plastic laminates are also particularly easy to peel and reduce the risk of injury.
