Generally, a shim is a small, tapered piece of material used to fill spaces between objects and provide a precise fit. In machining applications, shims are often precisely engineered for specific thickness and width tolerances, due to their use in precise machinery positioning.

Shims can be round, for use on machine shafts and bolts, or slotted with a U-shape wedge for easy insertion between two components. Machining shims are typically made of a non-ferrous material like carbon, spring, or stainless steel. We also carry shim stock for those looking for a custom solution, and shim variety assortments for ready-to-go packs of common machinery shim sizes.
