Shim Stock

Shim stocks, also called shims or spacers, are thin rolls or flat pieces of materials designed to fill gaps or spaces between objects to achieve proper alignment, spacing, or levelling. A shim stock is a metallic sheet or foil that comes in varied thickness ranges and finds versatile applications in manufacturing, designing, and maintenance tasks. These spacers are crafted from rugged and durable materials, including steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass, bronze, and titanium. Moreover, shims of plastic or rubber of different sizes and shapes are also available and allow customisation options to meet requirements for specific applications. Additionally, shim stocks can be custom-cut using scissors or metal shears easily.

Advantages of Shim Stock:

Shim stocks offer unparalleled benefits in various aspects, such as:

  • Shim stocks are made of durable materials with resistance features, ensuring longevity.
  • They are lightweight and easy to install.
  • Reusable and resistant to wear and tear. 
  • Allow customisation options for different requirements.
  • Cost-effective, versatile, and safe. 

Popular Types of Shim Stock/Shims:

Shim stocks are classified into various types based on their materials, including: 

  • Steel Shim Stock – These metallic shims are made of steel that resists corrosion with excellent mechanical properties. Steel shims are incredibly durable, making them ideal for machinery, construction, and industrial facilities.
