Here is our standard range of shims that can be ordered online

 

Uses and benefits with shims

Shim washers that can also be called spacers can be used to compensate for tolerances in various types of manufacturing. We also offer laminated shims which facilitate the use of shims as the user can adjust the thickness of the shims by scaling one foil at a time. Shims can also have effects on production so that the production does not have to be as precise, which in turn can reduce lead times and process costs in production.

Laminated shims for ball-bearings of Laminum®

Ball-bearing shims are a type of shims that is always a ring in different dimensions. Our laminated brass rings consist of 0.05 mm thin foils. These foils are glued together in such a way that the ring appears as a uniform solid ring. But the foils can be scaled one by one with a sharp knife in order to be able to gradually scale down until the appropriate total thickness is obtained. When peeling foils, the spacer retains its appearance and strength, similar to that of a completely homogeneous sheet. The fitting rings make it easier to install e.g. ball bearings and can increase production efficiency. See more specifications under shims for ball-bearings.

Peelable slotted shims of Laminum®

Motor pads or slotted shims are a type of shims specially designed to adjust distances in engines. With laminated slotted shims, every installer can directly adjust the slotted shims to the appropriate thickness. The 0.05 mm thin foils can be scaled one by one with a sharp knife in order to gradually be able to scale down until a suitable total thickness is obtained from the shim. When peeling foils, the spacer retains its appearance and strength, similar to that of a completely homogeneous sheet. Read more about these shims under slotted shims in laminum.

Lamipac® ​​slotted shims made up of 10 individual shims

With lamipac slotted shims, the 0.1 mm thin foils can be taken off one by one and each foil can be used as a single shim, but even what remains after removing a number of washers can be used as a shim. The foils are basically 10 individual shims that are joined at one edge with a laser weld that is easily removable. Read more about slotted shims in lamipac.

Solid Lamisol® slotted shims

The lamisol slotted shims are of solid material, i.e. not scalable, and are suitable for adjusting coarse tolerances and for installations of a large number of engines. Lamisol® slotted shims are available in stainless steel or brass in various thicknesses. See more specifications under slotted shims in lamisol.

If you are looking for customized shims, you can find more info under custom made shims, or you can send an inquiry where you can attach drawings and specifications.
