Shims may seem like a small part, but don’t be fooled—a shim can play a huge role in any application. At Phoenix Specialty Manufacturing, we manufacture custom shims for any industry, such as the automotive industry, aerospace industry, electrical industry, etc. When you need shims for a project, consider using slotted shims. Here, we explain some of the common uses.
Why Choose Slotted Shims
Slotted shims are used most commonly in motors. They act as motor feet to adjust the height of the motor itself. This allows the alignment of the shafts between the pumps and motors to be accurate. Slotted shims can also be used with blowers, fans, turbines, and compressors.
There are many industries and companies that rely on slotted shims. Examples include any manufacturing plant that uses machinery with pumps and motors. Refineries, food processors, paper mills, and more have benefited greatly from slotted shims. Industries that rely on predictive maintenance programs that use laser alignment or vibration analysis equipment also have use of slotted shims.
When using shims, it is important to stick with professionally manufactured, precut shims. This will save you time and money—there will be no excessive time and labor devoted to hand cutting, flattening, and deburring of shim stock. Precut shims, like the ones we offer, are also easier on your equipment and will help to reduce machine wear-down.
