Mechanical Properties Explained
Before you select any material for any job, it is essential to understand the mechanical properties of the material. These mechanical properties will tell you how a particular material will behave when it is loaded.
These mechanical properties help in determining how much stress a certain material can handle before it fails or breaks. It is essential to know about the mechanical properties of the material because mechanical systems have to bear heavy loads during operations.
In this article, we’ll talk about different mechanical properties such as tensi..
Different Methods Of Cutting Metal Shims
Shims are generally defined as thin metal (or other materials) sheets - usually less than 1.0mm thickness. They are used to fill up the gaps between two bodies. They are also used to level up one body to the next to make the system robust in case any impulse force acts on it. Sometimes it is fitted between different parts of the machine for alignment, better fit and for improving the machinery life.
Shims can be made of many materials: • Aluminum • Brass • Stainless Steel • Cold Rolled • Low Carbon Steel • Wood • Stone • Plastic • Paper
Guide for Selecting the Right Metal Strip
The metal strip is a thin and narrow stock that usually has a thickness of 3/16 inches and a width of under 24-inches. These metal strips are manufactured according to the width and thickness requirements. So, if you’re wondering how to select the right metal strip for the job, then you’re at the right place.
In this post, we’ll take you through the selection processes of how to select the right metal strip. But, first, let’s talk about how these metal strips are manufactured,

What Are Feeler Gauges
Also known as thickness gauges, feeler gauges are a type of measuring instrument mostly used by engineers and supervisors during mechanical work to measure gaps between two closely attached parts of a machine or elements, for example, mating parts. Usually, these two parts are parallel to each other and their mutual clearance is measured.
The gauge consists of a set of blades or also known as leaves, which are like shim material different in their dimensions in terms of thickness, and precise values of up to a hundredth part of a millimetre is imprinted on them. Th..
