Once you use drive belts, chains or friction drives you will look for a require for re-tensioning. As time passes, vibration and friction can lead to slipping or unnecessary wear on your machinery’s electric motors or belts. The easiest method to account for this is to ensure your electric motors could be adjusted to pay for these problems by using electric motor slide bases. These enable you to accurately adapt the mounted electrical motor’s lateral position to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Foundation: This model demonstrates the usage of a time saving technique called a good Component. A GOOD Component allows you to associate or “package together” other necessary elements and features when placing a component in an assembly. The linked parts and features will become automatically placed together with the wise component by choosing the couple of reference faces. This specific example can be used to quickly place a motor body 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 a number of mates without having to select multiple mate entities and the kind of mate. A Design Table is utilized to create four sample configurations that can be quickly modified to include more frame sizes. Download this file to understand about becoming more efficient when employed in assemblies.
Motor slide base manufactured from steel
Steel Motor slide bottom is a straightforward alternative to the common clamping rails.
The motor is directly attached on the mounted electric motor slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the basic level of the slide foundation. The installation is less time-eating and the environment is easier.
The “Mono Plate“ version includes an assembly board which can’t be adjusted to between your motor feet.
With the “Duo Plate“ version, the assembly board is divided and only 1 side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates could be moved independently that 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. In addition they are extremely torsion-resistant due to particular workmanship of the steel profiles.
Because of the varied slot design you can reach a certain variability to attach on different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version as well.
As the “Mono Plate” version is favored because it is more steady, provided that the exact distance between your motor feet is known.
Another advantage is usually that the slide bases are easy to handle and light in weight.
Possible applications for these products include pumps, fans, compressors, conveyors, springtime loaded or vibration isolating mechanisms plus much more.

pdblowers PN 54140 (modified 54140.P)

Modified base designed for enhanced strength and durability
After using adjustable motor bases for several years on a huge selection of blower packages, pdblowers has developed several upgrades that make the motor bases far more durable and simple to use. Starting with the typical 445T motor bottom, our fabrication team makes the next modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The created corners of the bare slide bases are welded together to add durability and power 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 pressing bolts are used to help placement the motor and modify the alignment without needing to put drive on the adjusting screws which can otherwise very easily become stripped.
Durable Paint Finish – Following 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® high gloss metal finishing enamel.
These altered bases are held in stock for use on all pdblowers blower deals and will be purchased individually.
Universal motor 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. Ideal for fine engine positioning, tightening of belts, and alignment applications.

Dual adjusting screws for frames 182T-505T
The main purpose of 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 motor mounting bolts). When installing, the base ought to be safely anchored as close to its operating placement as possible. The motor should then be positioned on the slide base and the belting system configured. Position the electric motor so the proper tension comes to the belts and tighten the engine in place.

Slide bases could 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.

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