Precut shims probably offer the quickest payback of any maintenance investment, bar none! And PERMABLOC® stainless steel shims are manufactured to save even more time at the alignment site, when minutes of downtime add up quickly in terms of lost revenue.
PERMABLOC® precut shims are up to four times more cost-effective than hand-cut shims. This can be calculated quite easily: time studies show that up to 15 minutes are required to fabricate a single shim from sheet stock. Precut shims not only reduce labour costs during installation and repair, but facilitate inventory control and avoid the risk of injury when cutting and inserting sharp-edged shims.
Each PERMABLOC® Case contains a complete assortment of shims so that just the right shim size and thickness are always at your fingertips.
