We manufacture a wide variety of custom metal shims, spacers and thin washer shims which can be supplied flat or formed to your design specification.

What are metal shims?

Precision metal shims serve as spacers between mechanical components, effectively absorbing impact, minimising “play” or movement and safeguarding material surfaces in advanced high-tech applications. They are commonly produced from diverse metal types, such as stainless steel, aluminium, brass or copper.
