Once you use drive belts, chains or friction drives you will look for a require for re-tensioning. Over time, vibration and friction can result in slipping or unnecessary wear on your machinery’s electric motors or belts. The ultimate way to account for that is to ensure your electric motors could be adjusted to pay for these problems through the use of electric motor slide bases. These permit you to accurately adapt the mounted electrical motor’s lateral placement to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Base: This model demonstrates the usage of a time conserving technique called a Smart Component. A Smart Component allows you to associate or “package collectively” other necessary elements and features when placing a component within an assembly. The linked parts and features will be automatically placed together with the intelligent component by selecting a few reference faces. This particular 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 become better when assembly modeling. It will automatically add a number of mates without having to choose multiple mate entities and the type of mate. A Design Table is utilized to make four sample configurations which can be easily modified to add more frame sizes. Download this file to learn about becoming better when employed in assemblies.
Motor slide base manufactured from steel
Steel Motor slide foundation is a straightforward alternative to the normal clamping rails.
The motor is directly attached on the mounted motor slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the essential level 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 board is divided and only one side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates could 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 an easy use even under critical conditions. Additionally they are incredibly torsion-resistant due to special workmanship of the steel profiles.
Due to the varied slot style you may reach a particular variability to attach on different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version as well.
As the “Mono Plate” version is preferred because it is more steady, as long as the exact distance between your motor feet is well known.
Another advantage can be 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 designed for enhanced durability and strength
After using adjustable motor bases for several years on a huge selection of blower packages, pdblowers is rolling out several upgrades that produce the motor bases far more durable and easy to use. Starting with the standard 445T motor foundation, our fabrication team makes the following modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The formed 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 base frame and fitted with 6″ zinc-plated metal bolts. These pushing bolts are accustomed to help placement the motor and change the alignment without having to put power 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 altered bases are kept in stock for make use of on all pdblowers blower deals and may be purchased individually.
Universal motor slide bases can be used to mount NEMA standard electric motors. Fabricated from metal and coated with primer for durable, 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.

The main reason for a slide base is to permit the customer to adapt the motor’s position to insure proper tension on the belting apparatus.
Motor slide base
The slide base is a one piece steel mounting apparatus (with floor installation holes and adjustable engine mounting bolts). When setting up, the base ought to be safely anchored as near to its operating position as possible. The engine should then be positioned on the slide base and the belting system configured. Position the engine therefore the proper tension comes to the belts and tighten the electric motor 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.
