Shims and related products are used for the alignment of rotating or moving machinery or equipment. Without proper alignment, damaging vibrations may cause unnecessary wear, leading to mechanical breakdowns and causing costly equipment repairs. Additionally, this unexpected downtime can lead to delays in your business operations. To save your company time and money, MW offers multiple options for stock and custom plastic and metal shims made from various materials, all of which are designed to be easy-to-use, rapid or quick install shims.

Request a custom shim or shop our in-stock parts which include slotted shims, shim kits, shim packs, and more. All in-stock parts have a 24-hour turnaround time.
