Whenever you use drive belts, chains or friction drives you will find a require for re-tensioning. Over time, vibration and friction can result in slipping or unnecessary put on on your machinery’s electrical motors or belts. The ultimate way to account for that is to ensure your electric motors can be adjusted to compensate for these problems through the use of electric electric motor slide bases. These allow you to accurately change the mounted electric motor’s lateral placement to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Bottom: This model demonstrates the use of a time conserving technique called a Smart Component. A Smart Component allows you to associate or “package collectively” other necessary parts and features when putting a component within an assembly. The connected parts and features will be automatically placed combined with the sensible component by selecting a few reference faces. This specific example is utilized to quickly place a engine framework with the associated installation holes and hardware.
This model also offers mate reference included which is another way to become better when assembly modeling. It’ll automatically add one or more mates without needing to choose multiple mate entities and the kind of mate. A Style Table can be used to make four sample configurations which can be very easily modified to add more framework sizes.

Motor slide base manufactured from steel
Steel Motor slide base is a simple alternative to the normal clamping rails.
The engine is directly attached on the installed engine slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the essential degree of the slide base. The installation is much less time-consuming and the setting is easier.
The “Mono Plate“ version consists of an assembly board which cannot be adjusted to between the motor feet.
With the “Duo Plate“ version, the assembly panel is divided and only one side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates can be moved independently which allows a particular variation with the engine feet distance.
The high quality galvanized surface or the cathodic dip painting (KTL) guarantee longevity with both versions and an easy use even under critical conditions. Additionally they are extremely torsion-resistant due to unique workmanship of the metal profiles.
Due to the varied slot style you may reach a specific variability to add upon different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version aswell.
As the “Mono Plate” version is favored since it is more stable, so long as the exact distance between your motor feet is well known.
Another advantage is certainly that the slide bases are simple to handle and light in weight.
Possible applications for the products include pumps, fans, compressors, conveyors, spring loaded or vibration isolating mechanisms plus 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 is rolling out several upgrades that produce the motor bases a lot more durable and easy to use. Beginning with the standard 445T motor foundation, our fabrication group makes the next modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The produced corners of the bare slide bases are welded collectively to add toughness and strength to the entire base
Pressing Bolts – In two opposing corners, nuts are welded to the bottom frame and fitted with 6″ zinc-plated steel bolts. These pressing bolts are accustomed to help position the motor and change the alignment without having to put push on the adjusting screws that may otherwise easily become stripped.
Durable Paint Finish – After the modifications are made, the base receives a primer coat of Sherwin-Williams KEM KROMIK, a rust inhibiting, corrosion resistant phenolic alkyd resin primer, accompanied by a finish coat of Sherwin-Williams SHER-KEM® glossy metal finishing enamel.
These modified bases are kept in stock for make use of on all pdblowers blower packages and may be purchased individually.
Universal engine slide bases can be used to mount NEMA standard electric motors. Fabricated from steel and coated with primer for rugged, lasting reliability, these electric 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 mounting apparatus (with floor mounting holes and adjustable electric motor mounting bolts). When setting up, the base should be securely anchored as near to its operating position as possible. The engine should then be placed on the slide bottom and the belting system configured. Position the engine so the proper tension is supplied to the belts and tighten the 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.
