How to Mount a Motor Using the RediMount Adapter Kit

Mounting a motor to the RediMount™ flange

Your Thomson linear motion system will arrive with the motor interface flange and a coupling half mounted to the unit. In a bag will be a loose motor coupling half,  motor bolts and plastic plug.

1. Locate the bag containing a coupling half,  screws and plug.

2. Remove the coupling half from the bag and slide it onto the motor shaft (it will be tightened to the shaft later). Then push the motor and coupling assembly into the flange, joining the coupling halves.

3. Tighten the screws, securing the motor flange to the RediMount flange. See the table below for the torque tightening specification based on the screw size. We recommend using a removable thread lock adhesive to secure the screws.

4. Secure the coupling to the motor shaft by using an Allen key to tighten the screw in the coupler through the slot in the adapter housing. The correct Allen key size and tightening torque can be found on the plastic plug (picture shows size 5 mm with 15 Nm tightening torque).

5. To seal the interior of the flange, press the plastic plug into the holes that form the coupling access windows.

6. Make a final inspection and test the unit before putting it into operation.
