Selecting the Right Shims : Experience Guides the Way

Choosing the right precision metal shims for a specific application requires careful consideration of several factors that impact performance and reliability. Drawing from our extensive experience at Feng Yu, we can provide some key guidelines :

  • Material : The material of the shim should be selected based on the application's requirements, such as load-bearing capacity, environmental conditions, and thermal stability. We offer a wide range of high-quality metals, including stainless steel, brass, aluminum, copper, and various alloys. Our experts can help you select the most suitable material for your application.
  • Thickness : The thickness of the shim should be appropriate for the gap or space it is intended to fill. Too thin a shim may not provide adequate support, while too thick a shim could cause misalignment or interference. Our engineers can help you determine the correct thickness for your application.
  • Tolerance : The tolerance of the shim, representing the allowable variation in its dimensions, should be specified according to the precision requirements of the application. Tight tolerances are essential for high-precision applications. We can help you select the tolerances that meet your application's demands.
  • Customization : For unique or critical applications, custom-made precision metal shims may be necessary to ensure the perfect fit, performance, and compatibility with the surrounding components. Our team has extensive experience in customizing shims to meet your specific needs.
