PEABODY, Mass., Oct. 6, 2011 — Pinpoint Laser Systems Inc. has launched Microshim, a precision adjustable shim that is suitable for use in production plants, machine shops, utilities and other industrial facilities where machinery must be precisely adjusted or leveled.
Typical applications include positioning large machinery, leveling grinding equipment, adjusting roll assemblies and leveling extruders and injection molding equipment. The compact device is easy to use, highly versatile and affordable.
There is no need to lift machinery to slip in shims and wedges or make trips to the machine shop to make spacer blocks. The user adjusts a stainless steel lifting bolt to raise or lower the machine. Height adjustments of 0.001 in. are possible, and each Microshim will lift and support 10,000 lb.
Applying adhesive to the two sliding surfaces allows for adjustment before the device is permanently locked to a specific height. It is milled from a solid block of aluminum and protected by a hard anodized coating. All lifting hardware is fabricated in stainless steel. A set of four Microshims are packed in a case for easy and quick use.
