With the launch of the first fully Made in India Match 24/28 machine, we hope to trigger further innovation and growth in the Indian foundry market. It is indeed a moment of pride for the DISA team that the Indian operation is now introducing the latest technology locally,´ says Viraj Naidu, Managing Director, DISA India.
The DISA Match moulding technology revolutionised the options available to foundries looking for efficient, high-quality production of castings in shorter runs with frequent pattern changes. The DISA Match now offers a choice between mould sizes of 20/24´, 24/28´, 28/32´ and 32/32´. A simplified and service-friendly design offers easy access to the moulding area. The key attributes are as follows:
High reliability: Rock-steady operation and consistency, resulting in dependable production and delivery of high-quality castings.
Maximised earnings: Achieves lowest cost per casting and short payback time with high speed and yield, quick pattern change times, low maintenance requirements, and the reuse of existing pattern plates are key factors.
World-class service and support: DISA global services offer service and maintenance, operator training and foundry technology service agreements that help to optimise productivity and performance.
DISA Core 20 FP: The new DISA Core 20 FP is designed for foundries that need to increase their competitive edge with a flexible and fast production of high-quality cores. DISA Core 20 FP is a German innovation with Indian manufacturing costs. The benefits of the product include flexible production suitable for multi-, vertical- or horizontal parted core boxes, fast production due to a state-of-the-art control system and easy tooling change with DISA quick action clamping system, and favourable installation conditions thanks to a compact design that requires no pit, freely accessible, easy to clean features, special shooting system which requires minimal maintenance, and much more. The need for a global core product for the Indian market has long been felt and DISA is now proud to bring this technology through its Tumkur Plant near Bengaluru. Automatic mould handling system: This smooth and synchronised mould handling from the DISA Match moulding machine to final shakeout is essential in order to protect mould integrity throughout pouring, solidification and cooling. The hydraulically powered DISA automatic mould handling system (AMH) transports moulds from the DISA Match machine through the pouring, solidification and cooling zones before moving them to the shakeout system. The DISA AMH system synchronises perfectly with the DISA Match to protect mould integrity and maximise moulding speed. The DISA AMH consists of a variable length pouring/cooling line, including an automatic weight and jacket cleaning station.
Saturn HD wheel: Founded on a hundred and more years of experience, the Saturn HD blast wheel for the foundry and forge industry improves productivity whilst reducing cycle times. Designed with the latest technology to provide ease of maintenance and high performance under the toughest conditions, the Saturn HD wheel is available in a wide range of sizes and power.
