I am a big fan of the Vital systems stuff.
I would go with the DSPMC/ip for something that size that will need lots of I/O.
If the motors and drives are usable I would stay with them. A DC motor is rated for 2000 hrs between rebuilds as a general rule IIRC. If you are going to use it a lot, say 40 hours /week, then consider AC or brushless servos.

There are other options and I will let fans of them chime in.

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

i received the machine yesterday.
its a interact 520 from 86/87 with analog endcoders and fanuc +-10v servo amps for spindlel and axis.

i think, the best way is a cs labs ip-a or dspmc-ip with analog outputs for the axis, and a heidenain 601 exe converterf for the encoders.
so i can replace  now the heidenhain 155  "plug and play" and the servors later.

Sounds like a plan.
