Once you use drive belts, chains or friction drives you will look for a need 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 easiest method to account for this is to make sure your electric motors could be adjusted to compensate for these problems through the use of electric electric motor slide bases. These allow you to accurately adapt the mounted electric motor’s lateral position to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Foundation: This model demonstrates the utilization of a time saving technique called a Smart Component. A Smart Component allows you to associate or “package collectively” other necessary components and features when placing a component in an assembly. The connected parts and features will be automatically placed together with the wise component by choosing the couple of reference faces. This particular example is used to quickly place a electric motor framework with the associated mounting holes and hardware.
This model also offers 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 choose multiple mate entities and the kind of mate. A Design Table is utilized to create four sample configurations which can be easily modified to add more body sizes. Download this file to learn about becoming more efficient when employed in assemblies.
Motor slide base manufactured from steel
Steel Motor slide base is a straightforward alternative to the normal clamping rails.
The motor is directly attached on the installed motor slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the essential degree of the slide bottom. The installation is much less time-consuming and the environment is easier.
The “Mono Plate“ version consists of an assembly board which can’t be adjusted to between the motor feet.
With the “Duo Plate“ version, the assembly panel is divided and only 1 side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates can be moved independently which allows a certain variation with the electric motor feet distance.
The top 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 incredibly torsion-resistant due to unique workmanship of the metallic profiles.
Due to the varied slot design you may reach a certain variability to add upon different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version aswell.
As the “Mono Plate” version is favored because it is more steady, as long as the exact distance between your motor feet is well known.
Another advantage is definitely that the slide bases are simple to handle and light in weight.
Possible applications for the products include pumps, fans, compressors, conveyors, springtime 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 motor bases for many years on a huge selection of blower packages, pdblowers has developed several upgrades that produce the motor bases far more durable and simple to use. Beginning with the typical 445T motor bottom, our fabrication group makes the next modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The produced corners of the bare slide bases are welded with each other to add strength and strength to the overall base
Pushing Bolts – In two opposing corners, nuts are welded to the base framework and fitted with 6″ zinc-plated metal bolts. These pushing bolts are used to help position the motor and modify the alignment without needing to put force on the adjusting screws which can otherwise quickly become stripped.
Durable Paint Finish – After 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® glossy metal finishing enamel.
These modified bases are kept in stock for make use of on all pdblowers blower packages and will be purchased individually.
Universal engine slide bases can be utilized to mount NEMA standard electrical motors. Fabricated from metal and covered with primer for tough, lasting reliability, these motor slide bases simplify the adjustment, alignment, and positioning of electric motors. Perfect for fine engine positioning, tightening of belts, and alignment applications.

Product Features
Bases are given with washers

All “D” bolts (motor installation bolts) are welded into position to avoid spinning and “dropping” from slots
All “D” bolts are fixed to the specific foot design of the motor to aid in easier motor installation
Exact drop-in alternative to all major make slide bases
One adjusting screws for frames 56-145T
Dual adjusting screws for frames 182T-505T
The main purpose of a slide base is to permit 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 electric motor mounting bolts). When setting up, the base should be safely anchored as close to its operating placement as possible. The motor should then be placed on the slide foundation and the belting system configured. Position the engine so the proper tension is supplied to the belts and tighten the engine in place.

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

Field Installed Adjustable Motor Slide Base Heavy gauge steel mounting bases simplify the installation of motors and make the tensioning, maintenance and substitute of belts a straightforward efficient task. Fabricated from sheet or metal plate, after that primed and completed in a gray rust and corrosion resistant oven-baked finish.
base is meant to fit a size 56 frame (56C, 56, 56J) and comes with washers and an oven-baked primer that’s ready for clients paint. All “D” bolts (engine mounting bolts) are welded into position to avoid spinning and “dropping” from slots, plus all “D” bolts are fixed to the precise foot pattern of the motor for easier installation. This motor bottom is a primary drop in replacement for additional brands of slide bases.
