Birmingham, United Kingdom, March 22, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Stephens Gaskets has created a new set of shim washers made from the very best materials in a huge variety of sizes, enabling manufacturers to perfectly fill spaces in complex assemblies.
Shim washers need to be flexible, supportive and hard wearing, and are often referred to as support washers because of their usefulness in filling small gaps in bearing assemblies, or any other complex application in which they take up excess play between components. Stephens Gaskets has created a new range of high carbon spring steel shim washers (http://www.stephensgaskets.co.uk/washers-at-stephens-gaskets.php) to create the perfect combination of flexibility, durability and strength, offering a superior alternative to the common brass shim washers still regularly being used in the industry.
The new range of shim washers (http://www.stephensgaskets.co.uk/washers/shim-washers) come in a huge range of sizes designed to be useful in any application, and the company can even create bespoke washers for clients’ specific needs. The spring steel adds new functionality to the shim washers as well, helping them preserve the components themselves.
The new shim washers reduce maintenance and repair costs by preserving the faces of the two components themselves, meaning that when the time comes for maintenance, only the shims need to be replaced at intervals rather than the components themselves, saving considerable sums on the upkeep of complex machinery.
A spokesperson for Stephens Gaskets explained, “We are excited to be able to offer this comprehensive range of high quality, durable shim washers to offer significant improvement in performance to every piece of machinery that uses these small but essential components. The world of fine-tuned machinery is advancing more and more every day, and we are doing our part to ensure even the smallest fundamental components are keeping pace with that change and continue to offer improved performance in their role within the total piece of engineering. We look forward to shipping these shim washers to manufacturers throughout the world very soon, and will continue to innovate our other products with the same tenacity.”
