Whenever you use drive belts, chains or friction drives you will find a need for re-tensioning. As time passes, vibration and friction can lead to slipping or unnecessary put on on your machinery’s electrical motors or belts. The easiest method to account for this is to ensure your electric motors can be adjusted to compensate for these problems by using electric engine slide bases. These allow you to accurately adjust the mounted electrical motor’s lateral placement to the millimeter.
Motor Slide Foundation: This model demonstrates the use of a time conserving technique called a Smart Component. A GOOD Component allows you to associate or “package jointly” other necessary components and features when placing a part in an assembly. The associated parts and features will become automatically placed combined with the clever component by selecting a couple of reference faces. This specific example can be used to quickly place a electric motor frame 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 will automatically add one or more mates without needing to choose multiple mate entities and the kind of mate. A Style Table can be used to create four sample configurations which can be very easily modified to add more framework sizes.

Motor slide base made of steel
Steel Motor slide bottom is a simple alternative to the common clamping rails.
The engine is directly attached on the mounted engine slide vase and the belt drive is stretched on the basic degree of the slide foundation. The installation is much less time-eating and the environment 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 table is divided and only 1 side is led with the adjusting screw (tensioning screw). The plates could be moved independently that allows a particular 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. Additionally they are extremely torsion-resistant due to unique workmanship of the metal profiles.
Due to the varied slot design you can reach a specific variability to add on different motors with the „Mono Plate“ version as well.
As the “Mono Plate” version is favored since it is more stable, so long as the exact distance between the motor feet is known.
Another advantage is that the slide bases are easy 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 engine bases for several years on hundreds of blower packages, pdblowers has developed several upgrades that make the motor bases a lot more durable and simple to use. Beginning with the typical 445T motor bottom, our fabrication group makes the following modifications: Motor slide base
Welded Corners – The shaped corners of the bare slide bases are welded together to add sturdiness and strength to the entire base
Pressing Bolts – In two opposing corners, nuts are welded to the bottom framework and fitted with 6″ zinc-plated steel bolts. These pushing bolts are used to help placement the motor and modify the alignment without needing to put force on the adjusting screws that may otherwise quickly 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, accompanied 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 packages and will be purchased individually.
Universal engine slide bases can be utilized to mount NEMA regular electrical motors. Fabricated from steel and covered with primer for tough, lasting reliability, these electric 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 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 installation apparatus (with floor mounting holes and adjustable electric motor mounting bolts). When installing, the base should be securely anchored as close to its operating placement as possible. The electric motor should then be positioned on the slide foundation and the belting program configured. Position the electric motor so the proper tension is supplied to the belts and tighten the motor 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 have two adjustable screws.

Field Installed Adjustable Engine Slide Base Heavy gauge steel mounting bases simplify installing motors and make the tensioning, maintenance and replacement of belts a straightforward efficient task. Fabricated from sheet or metal plate, after that primed and finished in a gray rust and corrosion resistant oven-baked complete.
base is meant to fit a size 56 framework (56C, 56, 56J) and is supplied with washers and an oven-baked primer that is ready for customers paint. All “D” bolts (engine mounting bolts) are welded into position to avoid spinning and “dropping” from slot machine games, plus all “D” bolts are fixed to the precise foot pattern of the engine for easier installation. This motor bottom is a primary drop in alternative to other brands of slide bases.
