Motor Slide Base

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 wear on your machinery’s electrical motors or belts. The best way to account for this is to ensure your electric motors can be adjusted to pay for these problems by using electric electric motor slide bases. These enable you to accurately change the mounted electric motor’s lateral placement to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Foundation: This model demonstrates the usage of a time saving technique called a good Component. A Smart Component allows you to associate or “package together” other necessary elements and features when placing a component in an assembly. The associated parts and features will end up being automatically placed along with the sensible component by selecting a couple of reference faces. This particular example is used to quickly place a motor framework with the associated mounting holes and hardware.
This model also offers mate reference included which is another way to become better when assembly modeling. It’ll automatically add a number of mates without having to select multiple mate entities and the type of mate. A Style Table can be used to create four sample configurations that can be easily modified to include more body sizes.

Motor slide base manufactured from steel
Steel Motor slide foundation is a straightforward 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 basic level of the slide bottom. The installation is less time-consuming and the environment is easier.
The “Mono Plate“ version includes an assembly board which can’t be adjusted to between the motor feet.
With the “Duo Plate“ version, the assembly plank is divided and only one side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates can be moved independently that allows a particular variation with the engine 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 particular workmanship of the metallic profiles.
Because of the varied slot design you can reach a particular variability to attach on different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version aswell.
As the “Mono Plate” version is preferred since it is more stable, so long as the exact distance between your motor feet is known.
Another advantage can be that the slide bases are easy 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 strength and durability
After using adjustable electric 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 easy to use. Starting with the typical 445T motor base, our fabrication team makes the following modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The formed corners of the bare slide bases are welded collectively to add strength and power to the entire base
Pressing Bolts – In two opposing corners, nuts are welded to the base framework and fitted with 6″ zinc-plated metal bolts. These pushing bolts are accustomed to help placement the motor and adapt the alignment without needing to put drive on the adjusting screws that may otherwise easily become stripped.
Durable Paint Finish – Following 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 held in stock for make use of on all pdblowers blower packages and can be purchased individually.
Universal electric motor slide bases can be utilized to mount NEMA standard electrical motors. Fabricated from metal and coated with primer for durable, lasting reliability, these electric motor slide bases simplify the adjustment, alignment, and positioning of electric motors. Ideal for fine electric motor positioning, tightening of belts, and alignment applications.

All “D” bolts (motor installation bolts) are welded into position to avoid spinning and “dropping” from slots
All “D” bolts are set to the exact foot design of the motor to assist in easier motor installation
Exact drop-in replacement for all major make slide bases
Single adjusting screws for frames 56-145T
Double adjusting screws for frames 182T-505T
The main reason for a slide base is to allow the customer to adjust 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 installation holes and adjustable electric motor mounting bolts). When installing, the base should be safely anchored as close to its operating position as possible. The engine should then be placed on the slide base and the belting program configured. Position the electric motor therefore the proper tension is supplied 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 frame. Frames 140T – 365T possess one adjustable screw and 404T – 449T possess two adjustable screws.
