Aerospace Shims

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 GE jet engines used on Boeing 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.
