Once 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 electric motors or belts. The ultimate way to account for this is to make sure your electric motors can be adjusted to pay for these problems through the use of electric electric motor slide bases. These permit you to accurately modify the mounted electrical motor’s lateral placement to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Base: This model demonstrates the use of a time saving technique called a Smart Component. A Smart Component allows you to associate or “package jointly” other necessary elements and features when placing a part in an assembly. The linked parts and features will become automatically placed along with the wise component by selecting a few reference faces. This particular example is utilized to quickly place a engine frame with the associated installation holes and hardware.
This model also offers mate reference included which is another way to be more efficient when assembly modeling. It’ll automatically add a number of mates without needing to select multiple mate entities and the kind of mate. A Style Table can be used to develop four sample configurations that can be quickly modified to add more body sizes.

Motor slide base made of steel
Steel Motor slide base is a straightforward alternative to the common 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 base. The installation is less time-eating and the establishing 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 plank is divided and only one side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates can be moved independently that allows a specific variation with the 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 incredibly torsion-resistant due to unique workmanship of the metallic profiles.
Because of the varied slot style you can reach a particular variability to add upon different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version aswell.
As the “Mono Plate” version is favored 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 easy to handle and light in weight.
Possible applications for these products include pumps, fans, compressors, conveyors, spring loaded or vibration isolating mechanisms and much more.

pdblowers PN 54140 (modified 54140.P)

Modified base available for enhanced durability and strength
After using adjustable electric motor bases for several years on hundreds of blower packages, pdblowers has developed several upgrades that make the motor bases far more durable and simple to use. Beginning with the typical 445T motor foundation, our fabrication team makes the following modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The shaped corners of the bare slide bases are welded together to add durability and strength to the entire 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 needing to put pressure on the adjusting screws which can 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, followed by a finish coat of Sherwin-Williams SHER-KEM® glossy metal finishing enamel.
These modified bases are held in stock for use on all pdblowers blower deals and will be purchased individually.
Universal engine 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 electric motor positioning, tightening of belts, and alignment applications.

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

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