You may get better response if you post you question in the CNC section of the forum.

wow, that is a departure from the normal "chinese cnc" which typically show up here.

as i see it, you have the physical/mechanical installation (plus air), the electrical installation, and the software integration (vfd and cam software). you will need to start addressing these needs. it is difficult for us on the other side of the keyboard to know what will fit/work and what won't. i would recommend that you accomplish what you can (maybe contact the manufacturer, which is who??), and make a list of questions to ask here, i'm sure others here will help!

are you adding a tool holder carousel, or inline tool holders down one side? didn't see those in pics...

pictures will help when you have questions also!
