Adjustment shims are used to fine-tune the location of your tooling components. (learn more)

Die-sharpening shims are placed behind the shim when the face of the die is machined down to sharpen it.  Keeping the surface of the die in the precise same location during the stamping, cutting, or forming process.

“I’m so glad Eric Wagner at EL Simith told us about the shim packs. We love those things. Saves us tons of time…. you have all the right to brag about your business, I would.”
Tom Crook, Tool & Die Supervisor, Orchid Monroe, Madison, WI.
