As many in the manufacturing industry already know, shims can be an essential component in equipment design. Made from a wide range of materials including metals and plastics, these pieces are inserted between two surfaces to align or adjust the fit of the two surfaces. These components perform the equivalent function of propping up a wobbly table by placing something underneath a table leg. Shims are available in a variety of shapes and materials, and used for a number of purposes.
Sometimes the tiniest elements of a piece of equipment can be the most powerful component in the system. They can be completely unassuming and nondescript, yet have a large impact on the function, performance, and longevity of a piece of equipment. Shims are such components, easy to overlook but with the potential to greatly reduce costs.
Shims, an integral component in equipment and parts design, are widely used across industries. They are powerful tools with lasting effects on many industrial processes. They can even change the outcome of professional races.

Some materials will release gas or vapor when placed in a vacuum. This is called outgassing. The gas or vapor can be absorbed, dissolved, or frozen, and creates a challenge to maintaining a clean area in high vacuum environments.
Designers and engineers know that it’s rarely feasible to merely weld two components together and be done with the process. Most connections need to be disassembled, whether the parts have to be removed for service or for replacement. As a result, some versatility is required in the design. Therefore, two of the most common connecting methods are either with a flange or with threaded parts.
Under the perfect conditions most sealants will perform proficiently to keep parts in place or to restrict air and liquids from escaping/entering. Unfortunately, perfect conditions are rare in many industrial situations and when temperatures start climbing, pressure increases as well.
