Open to any Custom Orders
We ensure the client is happy, satisfied and interested in returning again and again. We specialise in classic and vintage cars. Therefore, we provide parts for motorcycle clubs, and our services are used repeatedly by large, industrial companies working with and manufacturing diesel engines.
Much of our work is based around providing parts that are cut and made to specific sizes, thicknesses and shapes. However, we pride ourselves on our flexibility and willingness to take on a challenge. As such, we have always been open to custom orders, which require unusually shaped items made from our wide range of available materials.
Shim washers are commonly used to fill excess gaps, particularly in bearing assemblies or any other application in which they are needed to take up excess space. They remove those gaps that can compromise the effectiveness of a mechanism.
When gaps are filled, you will immediately notice a reduction in movement between components. Additionally, a reduction of wear and erosion caused by two parts having direct contact with each other. This closing of gaps can reduce buzzing or vibration, and it will also enhance the effectiveness or productivity of a machine.
Prevent Machinery Problems
One of the problems many people face when it comes to engines, or other similar mechanisms, are those caused by small spaces or gaps between components. These are easily overlooked, but the presence of badly fitting parts or excess space within a machine are almost certain to cause significant problems over time.
This is where ring shim washers can come in, and make all the difference. Another term for this product is referred to as support washers.
As with most of our products, our washers are available to purchase in a number of different gauges and thicknesses. Also there are a number of different internal and external diameters to suit your own individual requirements.
We’d only be too happy to cast our expert eye and apply our experience and knowledge to your issue or project. We will share with you what we feel would be the best way to go forwards, and what type of washer will best fit your needs. We’re also very open to customisation, if necessary. Moreover, we pride ourselves on our ability to make the most effective selections for our customers.
Extends the Lifespan of Machinery
When used effectively these small parts can also lengthen the lifespan of an engine or machine. Also, perhaps most importantly, it will allow you to rest a little more at ease in the knowledge that nothing is untoward.
If the shim washers are made from carbon spring steel, there are many benefits. It makes them flexible and supportive at the same time, as well as being hard wearing. Carbon spring steel is highly durable, and has a longer lifespan. In addition, it has more ability to endure wear and impact than other, similar materials.
Minimise Cost and Time Constraints
Shim washers are used to absorb friction and tolerances between two different components. This can be absolutely vital when it comes to a machine with many moving parts. It will protect the components from each other and allow everything to run more smoothly. Generally speaking, the different components don’t need to be specifically machined for a perfect fit, and as such, costs and time constraints are minimised. Our parts are the perfect answer when it comes to taking up any excess gaps where required.
Affordable and Practical Solutions
We know that productivity and effectiveness is as much a financial issue as it is a practical one. Nobody wants to have to repeatedly replace components, or waste their money on parts which aren’t going to last an adequate amount of time. We can guarantee strong products at Stephens Gaskets. Consequently, dramatically reducing maintenance and repair costs, as they can help to preserve the faces of the two components.
Reduce Wear and Tear
This means that over time, only the shims need to be replaced at intervals rather than the components themselves. They will take the impact and wear of the mechanism, rather than the more expensive, complicated or hard to obtain parts. When you use appropriate shims in the correct way, you’ll find that you are reducing the costs of both maintenance and repairs. Therefore, giving yourself complete confidence in the application.
A Dedication to Customer Service
You can also be assured of complete confidence in us. We are able to boast several decades of hard work, market knowledge and technical expertise.
