Shims produced by Production Spring help to ensure that the gear engagements for these assemblies operate quietly and without vibration. The shims are manufactured as a family of parts in varied thicknesses typically separated by 30 micron increments. This allows the PTU/ RDM manufacturer to select a shim that will ensure proper gear engagement regardless of the variation inherent in the other components of the assembly.
Processing standards include vibratory de-burring and increased sampling for thickness. Options include the marking of part thickness on each shim and specialized packaging.
