Our components can be found deep within the structure, propulsion and landing gear systems of almost every aircraft flying today, as well as in many other engineered products, vehicles, machinery and equipment.
 

A Smart Solution
to a common engineering challenge...

The primary function of a shim or filler is to provide rapid, cost-effective, dimensional adjustment within a mechanical assembly to compensate for: tolerance build up, alignment issues and wear.
 

By using a correct shim, manufacturing and tooling costs can often be saved by engineering components required to be joined to form a single assembly, to wider initial tolerances. Secondary functions include isolation of different materials types, vibration dampening and shielding. 

An unremitting
Focus on Quality...

With modern plant and equipment, an engrained lean philosophy, and the latest optical and ultrasonic test and inspection equipment, you can be assured of the highest possible quality at the lowest possible cost.
