Which type of moulding technology is best for you?
The choice of moulding technology generally comes down to size and geometrical complexity of the part being created versus the desired production volume.
Vertical moulding technology is predominately suited for high volume, high precision castings. DISA's vertical moulding offer is the best in the industry. With 1,450 vertical moulding machines installed in the market since the introduction of the DISAMATIC® in 1964, DISA remains the partner of choice for customers throughout the world. This installed base is second to none.
Match plate moulding machines are typically the preferred option for foundries desiring more flexibility in their offer. Foundries using match plate technology place an emphasis on quick changeover cycles to serve a very broad customer base on a make‐to‐order basis. They compete on speed to market and the ability to produce a wide range of products on their moulding platform. To address this increasing need in the market, DISA developed the flaskless DISA MATCH technology in 2000.
Horizontal moulding machines tend to be the technology of choice for lower volume, larger castings. Foundries using horizontal technology often produce large, heavy and geometrically complex parts (boiler elements, engine blocks, gear boxes, etc.) on relatively low volume requirements. In 2004 DISA introduced the FLEX flask line to meet the needs of this critical market segment.
A Tradition of Innovation
Throughout its long history in moulding technology, DISA has continuously developed and brought to market high‐quality innovative solutions to the foundry industry. DISA's machines have more up‐time, lower maintenance costs and a higher degree of automation when compared to alternative offers.
