Whenever you use drive belts, chains or friction drives you will find a require for re-tensioning. Over time, 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 make sure your electric motors can be adjusted to pay for these problems through the use of electric motor slide bases. These allow you to accurately modify the mounted electric motor’s lateral position to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Foundation: This model demonstrates the utilization of a time saving technique called a Smart Component. A GOOD Component enables you to associate or “package with each other” other necessary parts and features when putting a part within an assembly. The connected parts and features will end up being automatically placed along with the clever component by selecting a few reference faces. This particular example can be used to quickly place a engine body with the associated mounting holes and hardware.
This model also offers mate reference included which is another way to be better when assembly modeling. It’ll automatically add one or more mates without needing to choose multiple mate entities and the kind of mate. A Style Table is utilized to produce four sample configurations which can be quickly modified to include more framework sizes.

Motor slide base made of steel
Steel Motor slide foundation is a simple alternative to the normal clamping rails.
The motor is directly attached on the mounted engine slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the essential level of the slide foundation. The installation is much 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 1 side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates could be moved independently which allows a specific variation with the engine 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. Additionally they are incredibly torsion-resistant due to unique workmanship of the metal profiles.
Due to the varied slot style you may reach a certain variability to add on different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version aswell.
As the “Mono Plate” version is preferred since it is more steady, so long as 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 these 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 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 simple to use. Beginning with the standard 445T motor foundation, our fabrication team makes the next modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The produced corners of the bare slide bases are welded jointly to add strength and power to the entire base
Pushing Bolts – In two opposing corners, nuts are welded to the bottom frame 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 force on the adjusting screws that may otherwise 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® glossy metal finishing enamel.
These altered bases are held in stock for use on all pdblowers blower deals and will be purchased individually.
Universal engine slide bases can be used to mount NEMA regular electric motors. Fabricated from metal and covered with primer for durable, lasting reliability, these electric motor slide bases simplify the adjustment, alignment, and positioning of electric motors. Perfect for fine engine positioning, tightening of belts, and alignment applications.

The main purpose of a slide base is to allow the customer to modify 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 mounting holes and adjustable engine mounting bolts). When setting up, the base should be safely anchored as near to its operating position as possible. The electric motor should then be placed on the slide base and the belting system 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 body. Frames 140T – 365T have one adjustable screw and 404T – 449T have two adjustable screws.

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