Once you use drive belts, chains or friction drives you will find a need for re-tensioning. Over time, vibration and friction can result in slipping or unnecessary put on on your machinery’s electric motors or belts. The easiest method to account for that is to make sure your electric motors can be adjusted to pay for these problems by using electric motor slide bases. These permit you to accurately modify the mounted electric motor’s lateral placement to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Foundation: This model demonstrates the utilization of a time conserving technique called a good Component. A GOOD Component enables you to associate or “package with each other” other necessary components and features when putting a part in an assembly. The connected parts and features will be automatically placed combined with the wise component by selecting a couple of reference faces. This specific example is utilized to quickly place a engine body with the associated installation holes and hardware.
This model also has mate reference included which is another way to be more efficient when assembly modeling. It will automatically add one or more mates without having to select multiple mate entities and the kind of mate. A Design Table is used to produce four sample configurations that can be very easily modified to include more frame sizes. Download this document to understand about becoming more efficient when working in assemblies.
Motor slide base made of steel
Steel Motor slide foundation is a straightforward alternative to the normal clamping rails.
The electric motor is directly attached on the installed engine slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the basic degree of the slide base. The installation is less time-consuming and the establishing is easier.
The “Mono Plate“ version contains an assembly board which can’t be adjusted to between your motor feet.
With the “Duo Plate“ version, the assembly board is motor slide base divided and only one side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates can be moved independently which allows a specific variation with the electric motor feet distance.
The high quality galvanized surface or the cathodic dip painting (KTL) guarantee longevity with both versions and a simple use even under critical conditions. Additionally they are extremely torsion-resistant due to special workmanship of the metallic profiles.
Because of the varied slot style you can reach a specific variability to attach on different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version aswell.
As the “Mono Plate” version is preferred since it is more steady, so long as the exact distance between the motor feet is well known.
Another advantage is certainly that the slide bases are simple to handle and light in weight.
Possible applications for these products include pumps, fans, compressors, conveyors, spring loaded or vibration isolating mechanisms and much more.

pdblowers PN 54140 (modified 54140.P)

Modified base available for enhanced durability and strength
After using adjustable electric motor bases for many years on hundreds of blower packages, pdblowers has developed several upgrades that produce the motor bases a lot more durable and easy to use. Starting with the typical 445T motor base, our fabrication team makes the next modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The created corners of the bare slide bases are welded jointly to add durability and strength to the overall base
Pushing Bolts – In two opposing corners, nuts are welded to the bottom body and fitted with 6″ zinc-plated metal bolts. These pressing bolts are accustomed to help placement the motor and adjust the alignment without having to put force on the adjusting screws which can otherwise very easily become stripped.
Durable Paint Finish – Following the modifications are produced, the base receives a primer coat of Sherwin-Williams KEM KROMIK, a rust inhibiting, corrosion resistant phenolic alkyd resin primer, followed by a finish coat of Sherwin-Williams SHER-KEM® high gloss metal finishing enamel.
These modified bases are held in stock for use on all pdblowers blower packages and can be purchased individually.
Universal electric motor slide bases can be used to mount NEMA regular electric powered motors. Fabricated from steel and coated with primer for durable, lasting reliability, these motor slide bases simplify the adjustment, alignment, and positioning of electric motors. Perfect for fine motor positioning, tightening of belts, and alignment applications.

The main purpose of a slide base is to allow the customer to change the motor’s position to insure proper tension on their belting apparatus.
Motor slide base
The slide base is a one piece steel installation apparatus (with floor mounting holes and adjustable motor mounting bolts). When setting up, the base ought to be securely anchored as close to its operating placement as possible. The electric motor should then be positioned on the slide base and the belting system configured. Position the motor so the proper tension is supplied to the belts and tighten the electric motor in place.

Slide bases can be supplied for horizontal frames 140T through 449T, and are specific to each framework. Frames 140T – 365T have one adjustable screw and 404T – 449T have two adjustable screws.
