Once you use drive belts, chains or friction drives you will look for a need for re-tensioning. As time passes, vibration and friction can lead to slipping or unnecessary use on your machinery’s electrical motors or belts. The best way to account for this is to make sure your electric motors can be adjusted to pay for these problems by using electric engine slide bases. These enable you to accurately adapt 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 GOOD Component enables you to associate or “package jointly” other necessary elements and features when putting a part in an assembly. The connected parts and features will be automatically placed combined with the intelligent component by choosing the couple of reference faces. This specific example can be used to quickly place a motor framework with the associated mounting holes and hardware.
This model also has mate reference included which is another way to be better when assembly modeling. It will 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 produce four sample configurations that can be quickly modified to add more frame sizes. Download this document to learn about becoming better when working in assemblies.
Motor slide base manufactured from steel
Steel Motor slide base is a straightforward alternative to the normal clamping rails.
The electric motor is directly attached on the mounted electric motor slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the basic degree of the slide base. The installation is less time-consuming and the environment is easier.
The “Mono Plate“ version contains an assembly board which can’t be adjusted to between the motor feet.
With the “Duo Plate“ version, the assembly board is divided and only one side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates could be moved independently that 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 unique workmanship of the steel profiles.
Because of the varied slot style you may reach a specific variability to add upon different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version aswell.
As the “Mono Plate” version is preferred since it is more steady, as long as the exact distance between your motor feet is well 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, spring 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 several 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 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 together to add strength and power to the entire base
Pushing Bolts – In two opposing corners, nuts are welded to the base framework and fitted with 6″ zinc-plated steel bolts. These pushing bolts are accustomed to help position the motor and modify the alignment without having to put force on the adjusting screws which can otherwise very easily become stripped.
Durable Paint Finish – Following the modifications are made, 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 modified bases are kept in stock for make use of on all pdblowers blower deals and will be purchased individually.
Universal motor slide bases can be used to mount NEMA standard electric motors. Fabricated from steel and covered with primer for tough, lasting reliability, these motor slide bases simplify the adjustment, alignment, and positioning of electric motors. Perfect for fine motor positioning, tightening of belts, and alignment applications.

Product Features
Bases are given with washers
Bases are painted with an oven-baked primer for better contact of customer’s paint
All “D” bolts (motor mounting bolts) are welded into position to prevent spinning and “dropping” from slots
All “D” bolts are set to the exact foot design of the engine to aid in easier motor installation
Exact drop-in replacement for all main make slide bases
Single adjusting screws for frames 56-145T
Double adjusting screws for frames 182T-505T
The main purpose of a slide base is to permit the customer to change 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 motor mounting bolts). When setting up, the base ought to be securely anchored as near to its operating position as possible. The electric motor should then be placed on the slide foundation and the belting system configured. Position the motor so the proper tension is supplied to the belts and tighten the engine in place.

Slide bases could be supplied for horizontal frames 140T through 449T, and are specific to each body. Frames 140T – 365T possess one adjustable screw and 404T – 449T possess two adjustable screws.
56 – 505U Frame Size in Stock;
56 – 145T Frames are Single-Adjusting Screw Type;
182T – 505U Frames are Double-Adjusting Screw Type
Bases are Provided with Washers
Primed with Oven-Baked Primer for Easy Painting (Color: Black)
All “D” Bolts (or Motor Mounting Bolts) are Welded into Position to Prevent Spinning and Dropping from the Slots
All “D” Bolts (or Motor Installation Bolts) are Set to the precise Foot Pattern of the Motor to assist in Easier Motor Installation
Field Installed Adjustable Motor Slide Base Large gauge steel mounting bases simplify installing motors and make the tensioning, maintenance and substitute of belts a simple efficient job. Fabricated from sheet or metal plate, after that primed and completed in a gray rust and corrosion resistant oven-baked finish.
base is meant to fit a size 56 body (56C, 56, 56J) and is supplied with washers and an oven-baked primer that is ready for customers paint. All “D” bolts (engine installation bolts) are welded into position to avoid spinning and “dropping” from slots, plus all “D” bolts are fixed to the specific foot pattern of the engine for easier set up. This motor foundation is a direct drop in alternative to various other brands of slide bases.
