Shims

Tapered Shims

Experts in complex manufacturing processes, at Attewell we are highly proficient in producing tapered shims to suit more complex production needs. 

Uses of Tapered Shims

Shims are used to achieve tight-tolerance assembly.  In some situations, the mating parts are not flat or straight.  Tapered shims can be used where mating parts are angled or curved to ensure that the airframe is rigid with no play between mating parts. At Avantus, we are world-leaders in manufacturing tapered shims for even the most complex of geometries or curvatures.  We are able to work with a wide range of materials in such a way that all your airframe manufacturing needs can be met.

Wide range of materials

As with all airframe components, from the largest to the smallest, it is essential that tapered shims are made from a material that is able to withstand the rigours of their particular environment.  At Avantus, our extensive manufacturing equipment means that we can work with materials such as titanium, beryllium copper, stainless steel, aluminium, engineered plastic, polyimide and the “super alloy” Inconel.

Avantus’ value-added approach
