Production Spring is a manufacturer of custom high-precision shim without involving expensive grinding to thickness/sizes. All our production methods are ideal to maintain dimensional repeatability for quick turnaround. Unlike other manufacturers, we are successful in producing shims with thickness tolerances of +/- .0075mm (0.0003”) and parallelism +/-.01mm (0.0004”) without grinding or implementing distortion.
Shims are thin pieces of metal material often used as compensators to fill in small gaps between objects aligning parts, reducing wear, and absorbing tolerances between mating components. Precision Shims can also significantly reduce manufacturing time and costs as they eliminate the need for each component to be machined to achieve the proper fit and function of the total assembly.
