Metal Shim

Custom Metal Shim

KDM provides metal shims used as spacers between mechanical components in precision applications to reduce impact and protect a surface layer. Come with thin designs to surely meet your expectations.

 

Sheet Metal Shim Fabrication

Metal shims are thin metal parts that fill in the narrow gap or spaces between two objects. They can provide support, adjust fit, or extend out the rough surface, among other things. Many industry experts make shims from whatever materials are accessible at the time. Higher-quality metal shims, on the other hand, industrially come in a multitude of materials, including aluminum, copper, brass, lead, nickel, and many others.

At KDM, we offer expertise in designing and producing custom shims for industrial OEMs, energy production, and the petroleum industry. We have decades of work expertise in developing custom raw material solutions; we also have a highly qualified production team and cutting-edge manufacturing equipment. We generate shims in nearly any form, dimension, or complexity.

Shim Rings
Shim Rings

Shim rings, also known as tolerance rings, are used to establish a firm grip on bearings in embossed, crafted, or worn housing. They are frequently used in conjunction with securing rings to eliminate play between machined parts.

Arbor Shims
Arbor Shims

Arbor shims, also called slitter shims, are thin discs used to avoid axial movement in constructed parts.  These are machined to certain tolerances for a precise fit. It is used in machinery adjustment uses on rotating blades, saws, and grinding tools.

Slotted Shims
Slotted Shims

Slotted shims are available in many patterns and can be used for a variety of uses. Their most unique characteristic is an open, primarily U-shaped slot. They are used as spacers or fastened all over existing bolts and nuts.

Variable Shims
Variable Shims

There are two types of variable shims: shortened version and lengthened. They are used to increase or decrease the overall length of shoulder bolts (also called stripper bolts or shoulder screws). These are frequently used in punch and die assemblies.

Pre-Cut Shims
Pre-Cut Shims

Pre-cut shims are shaped steel parts that are used to raise or lower your machinery in order to maintain shaft alignment. Labeled with their exact thickness, making it simple to determine the shim size required for your needs.

Shim Finish Plating Options
Shim Finish / Plating Options

The list consists of common material plating/finishing services that we offer as an extra.

Primer – painting: Shims are commonly painted with primer and finish. We can paint to almost any commercial or military configuration.

Blackening: It is a conversion protective layer that adds mild corrosion protection and appearance.  One of its advantages is it does not change the thickness of the shims.

Chemical film: It is a common method of preparing shims for painting.

Anodizing: It is a regular process for aluminum metals. Anodizing improves abrasion resistance while also serving as a surface treatment for paint primers.

Custom Metal Shim for Specific Uses

Motor Mount Spacing
Motor Mount Spacing

Metal shims are made of finest grade aluminum materials for motor mount spacing applications. Accessible in different thicknesses ranging from .001” to 0.060”. Its thickness label is color-coded for accurate and easy identification.

Aligning Shaft and Motor
Aligning Shaft and Motor

Standard U-shaped metal shims are commonly used for aligning shaft and motor. Comes in different thicknesses and can be adjusted. These are used in numerous industries including automotive, power generation, electrical, and so much more.

Connecting Power Axle Levels
Connecting Power Axle Levels

Steel shims are made of steel that goes between your coil springs and your spring perch. On leaf spring vehicle types, these are used to reconfigure rear axle angles and accomplish appropriate driveline geometric features. They come in different thicknesses for exact fit.

Supports Wear Malfunctions
Supports Wear Malfunctions

The metal shims are cut into different forms in order to support wear malfunctions. When installed between two machined parts, shims can significantly reduce machining costs. This can lead to increased efficiency gains and cost reductions.
