A shim is a thin piece of material that is typically used to fill a space between 2 objects. They can be used to provide a level surface or help adjust the spacing between materials. When you need custom and precision shims, turn to Phoenix Specialty Manufacturing.
Shims are used in a wide range of applications—from shims used in the landing gear of an aircraft to the shims found in the exhaust systems of NASCAR race cars. Whatever your project or design calls for, we can manufacture it.
We give you complete control over the materials, thicknesses, shape, quantity, and quality of the shims you need. With over 300 raw materials on hand, we can manufacture shims in materials like brass, copper, nylon, stainless steel, PTFE, and much more. We can even manufacture custom shims with outside diameters ranging from .04” up to 6”. Our shims are also offered in ultra-thin dimensions all the way down to .0005”.
