Motor Slide Base

Whenever 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 wear on your machinery’s electrical motors or belts. The simplest way to account for that is to make sure your electric motors can be adjusted to compensate for these problems through the use of electric engine slide bases. These permit you to accurately adjust the mounted electrical 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 GOOD Component enables you to associate or “package with each other” other necessary components and features when placing a part in an assembly. The associated parts and features will end up being automatically placed along with the clever component by selecting a couple of reference faces. This particular example is used to quickly place a engine frame with the associated installation holes and hardware.
This model also has mate reference included which is another way to be better when assembly modeling. It will automatically add one or more mates without needing to select multiple mate entities and the type of mate. A Style Table can be used to produce four sample configurations that can be easily modified to include more framework sizes.

Motor slide base made of steel
Steel Motor slide base is a simple alternative to the normal clamping rails.
The engine is directly attached on the mounted motor slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the essential degree of the slide bottom. The installation is less time-eating and the establishing is easier.
The “Mono Plate“ version contains an assembly board which cannot be adjusted to between the motor feet.
With the “Duo Plate“ version, the assembly table is divided and only 1 side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates could be moved independently which allows a certain variation with the 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. In addition they are incredibly torsion-resistant due to special workmanship of the metal profiles.
Because of the varied slot design you may reach a particular variability to add upon 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 the 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, springtime loaded or vibration isolating mechanisms and much more.

pdblowers PN 54140 (modified 54140.P)

Modified base designed for enhanced strength and durability
After using adjustable engine bases for several years on hundreds of blower packages, pdblowers has developed several upgrades that produce the motor bases far more durable and easy to use. Beginning with the standard 445T motor base, our fabrication group makes the following modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The shaped corners of the bare slide bases are welded with each other to add sturdiness and power to the overall base
Pressing Bolts – In two opposing corners, nuts are welded to the bottom body and fitted with 6″ zinc-plated metal bolts. These pushing bolts are accustomed to help position the motor and adjust 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, accompanied by a finish coat of Sherwin-Williams SHER-KEM® high gloss metal finishing enamel.
These modified bases are kept in stock for make use of on all pdblowers blower packages and can be purchased individually.
Universal engine slide bases can be used to mount NEMA regular electric powered motors. Fabricated from metal and covered with primer for rugged, lasting reliability, these engine slide bases simplify the adjustment, alignment, and positioning of electric motors. Perfect for fine electric motor positioning, tightening of belts, and alignment applications.

The main reason for a slide base is to permit 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 installation apparatus (with floor mounting holes and adjustable engine mounting bolts). When installing, the base should be securely anchored as close to its operating placement as possible. The engine should then be positioned on the slide foundation and the belting program configured. Position the motor therefore the proper tension comes to the belts and tighten the electric motor in place.

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