Shimco manufactures high-precision details and laminated parts primarily for the aerospace and defense industries. Shimco is AS9100D and CCGP certified, and Nadcap accredited. Shimco partners with a majority of the world’s aerospace OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.

We work with hard and soft metals (aluminum, steel, stainless steel, Inconel, titanium, metal alloys). We have many 3 and 4-axis milling machines and high-precision turning machines, making parts with an accuracy of up +-0.0001” (+-0.00254 mm).

Shimco also has a full-service metal surface treatment facility (Nadcap accredited): anodizing, passivation, chemical conversion coating, priming/painting, rapid cure. Full onsite lab, including salt spray.

Shimco is the only Canadian company to also provide the following:

  • Peelable metal sheets and machined peelable components
  • Layer thicknesses of 0.001”, 0.002” and 0.003”, up to 40 layers thick
  • Laminated materials:
  • All metals (aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, brass)
  • Polyimide
  • Fiberglass

Technology commercialization:

“IntelliShim” for use in DPHM and remote event monitoring. Self-powering sensors that can be used in many applications for measuring strain, vibration, out-of-spec events; data is transmitted wirelessly to a collection node; no wires in and no wires out; no batteries required.

Competitive Advantages

Shimco is fully vertically integrated, with the capability of manufacturing our own laminated metals and plastics, full service CNC machining and turning and on-site metal surface protection coatings (Nadcap accredited for chemical processes). Shimco can provide aerospace grade parts, laminated or solids that are fully painted, in as fast as 24 hours.

Objectives at FIA 2022

We want to meet with new customers, current customers, representatives, and technology commercialization partners.
