Aluminum Shims, Color Coded
Artus Corp. manufactures the highest quality standard and custom aluminum shims in any required shape and a variety of thicknesses from.001 to.030. Color-coding is used for easy, accurate thickness identification (see chart).

>>>>>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....

Mechanical assemblies need precision to function and endure. Sloppy design practices using lower-cost, shoddy components and out-of-date manufacturing and testing can lead to failures, unexpected costs and even safety concerns. The proper specification, selection and use of manufactured parts for initial assembly as well as service all contribute to a mechanical product living up to and beyond its rated longevity....read more...
