    Matching drives to old AC servos?

    I have a dyna mechtronics dm4400m with the following motors that I would like to reuse, or replace with similar servos.

    Any good source for ideal replacement drives at an economical price for the home hobbiest ?

    X-Y axis
    HA40CS
    Rated Torque
    30.0 kg/cm at stall (2687 oz.in.)
    27.2 kg/cm at 1000 RPM
    24.4 kg/cm at 2000 RPM
    Max. RPM 2000
    Weight 8 kg

    Z axis
    HA80CS
    Rated Torque
    60.0 kg/cm at stall (5375 oz.in.)
    54.4 kg/cm at 1000 RPM
    48.7 kg/cm at 2000 RPM
    Max. RPM 2000
    Weight 12kg

    They talk about granite drivers but I’m not seeing any success recently with driving the original motors.

    Thanks for the link

    Hi,
    unless you're 100% familiar with servos with their associated encoders and/or resolvers sounds like a good recipe for spending lots of money
    buying new drives for your existing servos only to find they do not match each other as well as you hoped.

    If you are new to AC servos do yourself a favor and buy a matched pair, that is the servo AND the drive. Delta (Taiwanese brand made in China) and
    DMM (Canadian brand made in China) are two good quality brands that perform well, are well supported at reasonable prices.

    I am a lot more comfortable using steppers than servos of any flavor.

    But as I understand a mill the size of the dm4400 runs best with servos so should I embark on learning servos, or could I get a big enough set of closed loop steppers to get pretty good performance out of this thing?

    Thanks
