Custom Manufacturing of a Stainless Steel Solid Shim for the Aerospace Industry

Demonstrating our ability to manufacture solid shims in custom shapes and thicknesses, Shimco was contracted to produce 30 units of this unique stainless steel solid shim for a customer in the aerospace industry. Machined from 321 stainless steel annealed to AMS 5510 specifications, this 2.75" x 1.50" x .050" shim was CNC milled according to a customer supplied drawing. Additional machining operations included precision drilling and deburring of 14 holes, all completed to within the tight tolerances typically required by aerospace industry customers.

All parts were thoroughly inspected, stamped with the part number, and shipped to our customer in Quebec. To learn more about this project or for complete details on our shim and washer fabrication services, please contact Shimco.
