Solid slotted shims are used for vertical distance adjustment, that is, for raising motors, pumps, turbines, and generators in machine and system construction and maintenance. Unlike edge-bonded shims, solid slotted shims are especially frequently used in demanding situations (vibrations, tensile stress, extreme temperatures) because their compact design is especially durable.
Standard solid slotted shims
We carry solid shims for all common systems in European standard dimensions. The U-shaped standard shims are available in three different designs under the peel-plate, single-plate and vario-plate brand names. All part corners have been rounded. The standard thicknesses range from 0.05 mm to 2.0 mm. The standard design of solid shims is manufactured using stainless steel (1.4301/AISI 304, 1.4310/AISI 301).
Customized solid slotted shims
In addition to our standard systems, customized solid shims are available based on your technical drawings. They are tailored exactly and thus are very precise and can be used immediately. Round, square, canted, or drilled parts: We offer you individually machined solid shims such as filler plates, and washers.
