Whenever you use drive belts, chains or friction drives you will look for a need for re-tensioning. As time passes, vibration and friction can lead to slipping or unnecessary wear on your machinery’s electrical motors or belts. The simplest way 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 enable you to accurately modify the mounted electric motor’s lateral position to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Bottom: This model demonstrates the use of a time saving technique called a good Component. A Smart Component enables you to associate or “package together” other necessary parts and features when putting a component within an assembly. The connected parts and features will end up being automatically placed together with the smart component by choosing the few reference faces. This particular example is used to quickly place a motor framework with the associated installation holes and hardware.
This model also has mate reference included which is another way to become more efficient when assembly modeling. It’ll automatically add one or more mates without needing to select multiple mate entities and the kind of mate. A Style Table is utilized to generate four sample configurations that can be quickly modified to include more body sizes.

Motor slide base manufactured from steel
Steel Motor slide base is a straightforward alternative to the common clamping rails.
The electric motor is directly attached on the installed electric motor slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the essential level of the slide bottom. The installation is less time-consuming and the establishing is easier.
The “Mono Plate“ version contains an assembly board which cannot be adjusted to between your 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 that allows a specific variation with the engine 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. In addition they are incredibly torsion-resistant due to particular workmanship of the metallic profiles.
Because of the varied slot style you may reach a certain variability to add upon different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version aswell.
As the “Mono Plate” version is preferred because it is more stable, provided that the exact distance between the motor feet is known.
Another advantage is usually 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 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 a huge selection of blower packages, pdblowers is rolling out several upgrades that make the motor bases a lot more durable and easy to use. Starting with the standard 445T motor base, 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 toughness and power to the overall base
Pushing Bolts – In two opposing corners, nuts are welded to the base frame and fitted with 6″ zinc-plated steel bolts. These pressing bolts are accustomed to help position the motor and adapt the alignment without having to put push on the adjusting screws that may otherwise easily become stripped.
Durable Paint Finish – After the modifications are produced, the bottom 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 altered bases are kept in stock for make use of on all pdblowers blower deals and can be purchased individually.
Universal electric motor slide bases can be used to mount NEMA regular electric powered motors. Fabricated from steel and covered with primer for rugged, lasting reliability, these motor slide bases simplify the adjustment, alignment, and positioning of electric motors. Ideal for fine motor positioning, tightening of belts, and alignment applications.

Product Features
Bases are given with washers
Bases are painted with an oven-baked primer for better contact of customer’s paint
All “D” bolts (engine installation bolts) are welded into position to prevent spinning and “dropping” from slots
All “D” bolts are set to the specific foot pattern of the electric 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 reason for a slide base is to allow the customer to modify the motor’s position to insure proper tension on the belting apparatus.
Motor slide base
The slide base is a one piece steel installation apparatus (with floor installation holes and adjustable motor mounting bolts). When installing, the base should be securely anchored as near to its operating placement as possible. The motor should then be placed on the slide bottom and the belting system configured. Position the motor so the proper tension is supplied to the belts and tighten the engine in place.

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