What is a shim?

 

A shim may be used for a variety of applications. They are used for leveling as in a motor mount shim, aligning a shaft and a motor as in an alignment shim, or for reducing a gap between two parts as in a differential shim. Whatever your application may be AMG can produce the right shim for you application.
 

What types of material make up a shim?

 

Shims may be manufactured from any number of different materials. The material is usually dependent upon the environment that it is used. For instance, if the shim is being used in a corrosive environment stainless steel may be the answer. Contact AMG today to discuss your project needs.
