Considering getting a VMC but need to check I have the power to run it. As I'm no electrician, I am trying to understand what the text I pasted below means
electrics - voltage/frequency 380 / 50 V/Hz main drive DC 20 kW spindle drive 15 kW
How many Horses ? How many amps supply do I need ?
My now scrapped Auto lathe had a big beast of a motor on it, the plate says5.5/5.5/3,?? forgot the last bit. I think it was a 7.5 horse 2 speed motor, but I cant seem to grasp the KW - horsepower confidently. I also understand this is spread across 3 phases ? Advice welcome. Bob
