Custom Manufacturing of Aluminum Shim for the Aerospace Industry

Used within an engine mount application in the aerospace industry, this custom shim was machined from aluminum and consists of 63 layers edgebond glued to form a thickness measuring only .187". Edgebonding offers the flexibility for peeling layers to suit specific tolerances, and each peeled layer can be re-used used as a single shim. For this part, each of the 63 layers measured slightly less than .003" thick.

Our skilled machinists milled the layers from a customer supplied drawing, and after the gluing process inspected the finished parts to ensure they were within the ±.006" tolerance required by the customer. The overall dimensions of the part were 2.30" x 1.01", and each weighed only .059 lb.

Each shim in this 610 piece order was stamped with the part number, bagged, tagged, and delivered to our customer in Ft. Worth, Texas. To learn more about this project or for complete
