Nonplannar Laminated Shims
LAMÉCO can manufacture angled, bent, folded, conic (3D-PEEL®), tapered and curved (CURVPEEL®) laminated shims without any delamination.
They are all exclusive innovative processes of LAMÉCO. They provide top-quality solutions for laminated shims with nonplannar shapes, where the required shapes are incorporated into the shims during production.
The process is applied to shims intended for use on cylindrical couplings: these shims will then create a perfect ﬁt for the curved conﬁguration sets that are speciﬁc to certain assemblies. Cowlings, wind-turbine housings, fuselages, body-work, transmission shaft guides, etc. are examples of this use.
With the CURVPEEL® process, many different types of parts can be positioned and adjusted on curved bodies without any extra ﬁtting being required. Probes, antennae, rear-view mirrors, motors, stabilizers, pump bodies, reduction gear bodies, etc. are all possible examples.
Very High Precision
With the CURVPEEL® manufacturing process, highly accurate curved shims can be obtained with one or more constant radii.
A Gain In Time And A Financial Benefit
The shim no longer needs to be shaped before being assembled: It is delivered ready-to-use. This advantage is all the more appreciable where thick metallic laminated shims are required, as they cannot be curved manually or even with special tooling just before they are assembled.Furthermore, the CURVPEEL® process avoids any risk of delaminating and/or breaking laminations that can be found when shims are shaped at the last moment
This results in avoiding running the risk of considerable losses of time and a reject ratio that may often prove to be prohibitive.
LAMÉCO’S Specialty: Impeccable Quality
Our laminated shims are composed of foils glued across the entire face and not just at the edge.
In addition, due to our exclusive production processes they are perfectly parallel and totally free of any burrs.
