Industrial Equipment Shims

Exact Positioning from Prototype to Full Production

We understand the importance of exact positioning and alignment for industrial equipment. You must reduce wear and maintain optimal performance. For over 80 years, industrial equipment manufacturers have trusted Artus to deliver custom metal shim, shim stock, and gasket solutions.
We develop long-lasting relationships with industrial manufacturers, such as The Timken Company (a leading gearbox manufacturer), by offering short lead times, competitive pricing, and reliable products.
Our stainless steel shims and shim stock are durable, rust-proof, non-hygroscopic, and impervious to oil. Both are perfect for the precision and durability required by industrial shims.
Contact us with your blueprint specifications and tolerance requirements. Receive perfect positioning and alignment with our precision-cut industrial shims. It is as simple as that.
