Shim Rings

Metric DIN 988 shim rings are hardened steel round washers that are used in a wide variety of applications to limit excess space and axial movement created by manufacturing tolerances. They are typically used with retaining rings, lock washers, or other washers and go by many names, including shim rings, round shims, and tolerance rings.

Metric & Multistandard is your top source for shim rings and any metric component, hardware, or fastener for industrial assemblies. We maintain an extensive catalog to provide solutions quickly and efficiently for your manufacturing line, building job, or other application. Order today to take advantage of volume discounts on all bulk shim ring orders, or call 888-966-MMCC with any questions. Our experienced team is standing by to identify your best solution.

Specifications for DIN 988 Metric Shim Rings

Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. stocks precision DIN 988 shims manufactured from hardened spring steel. Hardened spring steel is an ideal material for round shims as it has a high yield strength, allowing shim rings to bend, twist, and compress before returning to their original shape and providing high-level performances in metric assemblies. Additional round shim specifications include:
  • Outer diameters from 6 to 100
  • Inner diameters from 3 to 80
  • Thicknesses from 0.1 to 3
Other materials, sizes, and configurations may be available upon request. Request a quote today, and one of our customer service representatives will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss your options.
