Shims

Metal Laminated Shims

As the industry’s largest manufacturer of shims, at Avantus we take full advantage of our extensive in-house engineering expertise to supply all your needs in terms of metal laminated, peelable shims. 

What are laminated shims?

All shims are made to provide precision contact between parts.  Laminated shims are made of extremely thin layers of metal that have been pressure-bonded to form strong components.  Able to function in the same way as solid shims, they have the additional advantage of being peelable, layer by layer, to enable the tightest possible tolerances in your airframe.  The individual layers can be made to your precise specification, from 0.025 mm (0.001”) to 0.1mm (0.004”). They can then be peeled off as required to achieve the most precise fit on your production line.

Variety of metal laminated shims

As well as a variety of peel strengths, we can also manufacture a range of formats, depending on your specific requirements.  With our impressive capability, we can produce shims that are bonded across the whole surface, or shims that are bonded on one edge only, called edgebond shims.  Another option is a hybrid shim, which provides additional strength, as it is part solid part laminate, but still has the flexibility of micro adjustment on the assembly line. All our laminated metal shims can be tapered, detailed, or flat.

Variety of metals

Due to our state of the art manufacturing capability, we are able to work with a range of metals to produce the shims that your airframe environment will require.  These include titanium, aluminium, stainless steel, carbon steel, mild steel, beryillium copper, brass and phosphor bronze, among others.  We understand the aerospace’s requirements for strong, lightweight, corrosion resistant materials.  Call to speak to our experienced team who will be happy to advise you and help you find the perfect metal laminated shims for your production needs.
