What is a shim good for? Similar to washers, a shim can act as a spacer between 2 objects. It might be the ruler you’ve jammed in the door as a wedge to keep it closed, or it could be a custom-made shim for use on the exhaust system of a vehicle. At Phoenix Specialty Manufacturing, we specialize in creating custom made shims for every industry—whether it’s the automotive, agriculture, electric, architecture, or more. One industry we serve in particular is the aerospace industry.
Our History with the Aerospace Industry
Manufacturing standards demand precision in the aerospace industry. We understand this. That is why we work hard to manufacture the perfect shims for aircrafts and aerospace carriers. We have a long history with NASA—we’ve manufactured shims used in the Apollo Moon landing vehicles, the Mars Rover, and jet engines used on commercial aircrafts.
Our aerospace shims can be custom made in any size and shape so you get the exactness you need. We can even produce ultra-thin shims at a thickness of .0005”. We also offer a variety of different materials, such as stainless steel, brass, copper, nylon, etc.
When you are working on a time-sensitive project, it is important that you get your aerospace shims in a timely manner. We offer a Managed Inventory System, meaning your parts are always in stock. We manufacture your parts, keep them on our shelves, and ship them when you need them. We manage your inventory, so you don’t have to.
