Laminated Shims at IGS Industries
Here at IGS Industries, we can produce a wealth of laminated shim products that specifically accommodate your projects. Our laminated shims allow you to forego stacking individual shims and offer you the option of “sizing” a particular shim by adjusting to the desired thickness and placing the shim. This option allows you to have control over your tolerances, saving precious time for your projects and giving your engineers more control over their work.
Why Laminated Shims?
Laminated shims are shims that have peelable layers that allow you to adjust the thickness of the shims right at the assembly line. This means that instead of keeping large stocks of different sized shims or stacking loose shims, an assembly line engineer can peel back the layers of the shim to adjust for tolerances right on the site. In this way, the close tolerances of a precision shim are obtained without the considerable time and expense of precision manufacturing for each shim. Savings on shim inventory and handling damage can be significant. The use of laminated shims also prevents dirt and foreign matter from being introduced between layers. When in place, the compressibility or “cold flow” of a laminated shim is less than that of either a solid or a loose leaf shim. Our laminated materials still stand up very well to machining and shearing, creating a time-saving solution that best fits your needs.
Laminated shims are available in brass, carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. Shims can be fabricated with full lamination, or from 1/2 solid or 3/4 solid stock. IGS Industries’ laminated shims are fabricated from sheets manufactured according to AMS-DTL-22499.
