I have been on here a few times posting, but since forgot my log in and email i used to register... don't you hate it when that happens.
I run a small composites shop, but want to expand. I'm not sure when looking for a building what amperage service would meet my requirements. I understand 3 phase is just about necessary if not completely necessary.
I would like to power a HAAS VF3 mill, HAAS SL30 lathe, and I will be adding an autoclave and possibly a 5 axis router, and of course a 5hp air compressor. The clave will be electrically heated, verses steam.
How do i go about calculating how much electrical power service I need?
I'd hate to move into a building only to find out there isn't enough power.
