NAAMS shims are a great way to fill small gaps or spaces in your automation process. These are metric fitting shims in compliance with the North American Automotive Metric Standards. They come with a slot design to fit tight areas between two objects or workpieces. The thickness offerings are of 0.25mm, 0.50mm, 1.00mm, and 2.00mm. All 0.50mm shims come with a yellow zinc dichromate coating and 1.00mm shims have a black oxide coating. 0.25mm and 2.0mm shims have no coating and are to be distinguished by their overall thickness. Shims are also able to support and provide a better fit, it can also be used with spacers to fill in gaps between parts when needed. Custom shims are available for order.
