>>>>>Plastic and Aluminum Color-Coded Shims Fill the Gap
Sometimes the smallest parts of a complex system can play an outsized role in its proper functioning. Such is the case with shims, which are thin pieces of material primarily used to fill unwanted gaps. Shims ensure the efficient and effective operation of machinery by fixing angular misalignments between rotating components in equipment such as pumps, compressors, generators, engines, turbines and gearboxes. Shims compensate for parts with poor tolerances, ensure level mounting, create level surfaces and can even be used as wear parts between mating surfaces...read more....
