Aluminum Strippable Shim

Strippable Shim

The strippable shim is also named layer torn shim, torn shim, manual torn shim, lamination shim, multi-layer shim, and adjustable shim.  

All mechanically processed involve parts manufactured to specific mechanical tolerance. During the complicated assembly of parts, unforeseeable and avoidable tolerance clearance is found after the assembly process is completed. Improper assembly may cause serious wear and serious mechanical failure at the beginning of the period. Argosy XAC’s advanced solution to this issue is the strippable shim.

Advantages of Aluminum Strippable Shim
  • Ability to make direct adjustments according to measurement clearance, immediately select clearance thickness without production interruption
  • High efficiency operation, without any special tools required (utility knife is used to strip the shim)
  • Perfection match assembling requirements completely, and ensure production precision
  • Proper time-adjust at the production site properly, without affecting production, and save a lot of labor and time
  • Portability applicable for field operation

Strippable Shim

Strippable shim uses a cementation and solidifying process. Aluminum pieces of a certain quantity and the same thickness are adhered and solidified and are made into shapes required by the mechanical process. The great feature is to strip it into the thickness required for use.

The strippable shim can be processed into shapes and any thickness upon need. Compared with the usual fixed shim, it avoids filing processing, shortens THE manufacturing cycle and improves labor conditions.
