Bulk Shims for Irrigation and Agriculture Equipment

Agriculture equipment is complex. Interior components, like bearings, gears, power takeoffs, and powertrains, often get misaligned and mispositioned. This problem impacts both agriculture equipment owners and manufacturers. If parts are not aligned perfectly, they may become worn or not perform optimally.  

Artus shims offer a solution. Keep your facility or farm stocked with Artus shims and prepare for when parts are misaligned. Artus shims are durable, precise, and reliable. They can quickly re-align agriculture and irrigation equipment components, preparing them for the fields.  

Artus has over 80 years of experience working with irrigation and agriculture equipment manufacturers like John Deere. Our shims are found in industrial sprinklers, tractors, skid steers, and more. 

Customers love our short lead times, economical process, and maximum precision. Artus also manufactures in-house, meaning a faster turnaround and wider product availabilities. We want to help you get reliable shims when you need them.

The Color Tells the Thickness

Each color of our plastic shims and gaskets represents a specific shim stock thickness, making distinguishing between thicknesses quick and easy. With variations in shim thickness being as little as 0.00025”, differentiating by color instead of measuring shims drastically saves time and reduces errors on the production floor.

Contact us, give us your blueprint specifications and tolerance requirements, and receive perfect seals with our precision-cut gaskets.
