Our composite laminated shims can be manufactured with the following options

CurvPeel: fits your curved parts perfectly

Nonplannar Laminated Shims

  • Highly accurate folded, conic or curved laminated shims
  • Perfect fit wihtout delamination
  • No extra fittings/adjustments being required
  • Gain in time / Financial benefit
Qar.X Data-Shim: your data is safely recorded into the shim

Laminated Shim with Chip

  • Security: all LAMÉCO shim data is encoded onto the chip buried within the laminated stack, avoiding any risk of paper loss
  • Paperless documentation achieved! Part history in its entirety can be recorded on the chip
  • Obviates the need for stamp-marking of parts
  • Simplifies the inspection, acceptance and storage operations
Self-Adhesive Shim

Self-Adhesive Laminated Shim

  • The shim stays in place on its own
  • Indispensable when screws cannot be used
  • Long term adhesion
