Laminate washers are a common component manufactured at Ford Engineering. Machined from our range of laminate sheets, which are produced in-house, the washers can be formed from layers of laminate material, or a hybrid combination of laminate and solid plate. Laminate washers allow our customers to make onsite modifications to be to the component without the need for specialist tools or equipment. This increased productivity and reduces downtime.
This composite laminate shim is an example piece from our Plasipeel range, made from multiple layers of either Mylar, Kapton or PEEK, bonded together to allow the total thickness to be reduced if required by the customer. Each sheet is 0.002 inch (0.05mm) thick, allowing customers to make accurate thickness changes onsite.
This Laminate plate is an example piece from our Easipeel range, available in both standard and hybrid form, with a solid sheet of metal and additional layers of 0.002 inches (0.05mm) which can be removed if the customer requires. This makes laminate components the ideal material to use for spacers or shims, where the required thickness could vary between applications.
