The main purpose of a slide base is to allow the customer to adjust the motor's position to insure proper tension on their belting apparatus.
The slide base is a one piece steel mounting apparatus (with floor mounting holes and adjustable motor mounting bolts). When installing, the base should be securely anchored as close to its operating position as possible. The motor should then be placed on the slide base and the belting system configured. Position the motor so the proper tension is supplied to the belts and tighten the motor in place.
Slide bases can be supplied for horizontal frames 140T through 449T, and are specific to each frame. Frames 140T - 365T have one adjustable screw and 404T - 449T have two adjustable screws.
