Shim Flat Washer

Unlike typical washers that distribute loads for any kind of fastener, shim flat washers are used to set clearances, adjust heights, or fill gaps in assemblies. Shim washers are traditionally made from thin materials, but they can be supplied in a wide range of thicknesses. Willie Washer supplies shim flat washers ranging from .002 inches thick to over a ½ inch thick. Shim washers also provide benefits for your bottom line. Shim washers reduce manufacturing time and costs because they eliminate the need for components to be precision-machined for the right fit and function. 


Shim washers are engineered to help you position and modify spacing between fasteners. This type of washer is utilized to create tight connections around shafts. We have the equipment and tools necessary to adjust the tolerance of each washer to meet your requirements. Our catalog of shim washers is designed to create compact connections on keyed shafts. Each part can be used to ensure components move in conjunction with the shaft.

Shim washers can be integrated into the threads of large and small screws to increase the shoulder length. Although shim washers can be used to adjust spacing near fasteners, this type of washer is also engineered to create space between ball bearings.
