Definition: Large Flange Motors

Many European motors adhere to a large flange standard. This is a flange much larger in diameter than most of the motors to which it applies. The motor is mounted via this flange to the gearbox or piece of machinery which it operates, and is cantilevered out from the gearbox, supporting its own weight.
