Whenever you use drive belts, chains or friction drives you will find a need for re-tensioning. As time passes, vibration and friction can result in slipping or unnecessary put on on your machinery’s electrical motors or belts. The best way to account for this is to ensure your electric motors could be adjusted to pay for these problems through the use of electric engine slide bases. These enable you to accurately change the mounted electric motor’s lateral position to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Bottom: This model demonstrates the utilization of a time saving technique called a good Component. A GOOD Component enables you to associate or “package with each other” other necessary elements and features when putting a part within an assembly. The linked parts and features will become automatically placed together with the clever component by choosing the couple of reference faces. This specific example is utilized to quickly place a engine framework with the associated mounting holes and hardware.
This model also offers 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 type of mate. A Style Table is utilized to make four sample configurations that can be quickly modified to include more frame sizes.

Motor slide base made of steel
Steel Motor slide foundation is a straightforward alternative to the common clamping rails.
The motor is directly attached on the mounted engine slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the basic level of the slide base. The installation is much less time-consuming and the environment is easier.
The “Mono Plate“ version consists of an assembly board which cannot be adjusted to between your motor feet.
With the “Duo Plate“ version, the assembly plank 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 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 steel profiles.
Because of the varied slot style you can reach a particular variability to attach on different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version aswell.
As the “Mono Plate” version is favored because it is more steady, provided that the exact distance between the motor feet is 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 electric motor bases for many 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. Beginning with the typical 445T motor foundation, our fabrication team makes the following modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The created 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 bottom body and fitted with 6″ zinc-plated steel bolts. These pushing bolts are accustomed to help position the motor and change the alignment without needing to put push on the adjusting screws which can otherwise easily become stripped.
Durable Paint Finish – After 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 deals and can be purchased individually.
Universal motor slide bases can be used to mount NEMA standard electrical motors. Fabricated from metal and covered with primer for durable, 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.

Product Features
Bases are provided with washers
Bases are painted with an oven-baked primer for better contact of customer’s paint
All “D” bolts (engine mounting bolts) are welded into position to prevent spinning and “dropping” from slots
All “D” bolts are fixed to the specific foot design of the motor to aid in easier motor installation
Exact drop-in alternative to all major make slide bases
Solitary 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 modify 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 mounting holes and adjustable engine mounting bolts). When installing, the base ought to be securely anchored as close to its operating placement 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 motor in place.

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

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