Consolidating Shims

Following up on last week’s blog post about inspecting motor bases, this week we take a look at shims.  Just like machine bases, shims are also a key part in the foundation of the reliability of an asset.  While walking around the facility have you noticed more than 4 shims on a piece of equipment?  Did you know that more than 4 shims can cause a sponginess, or a type of accordion effect that could possibly introduce soft foot in your asset?  This week’s video shows how to inspect and consolidate shims.
