Foundry Technology is constantly evolving, making new solutions available for new needs. Foundry technology is also vital to foundry profitability. Optimising quality, eliminating scrap, maximising yield, reducing energy consumption and cutting back costs are all essentials that depend on the technology employed.
Our Foundry Technology department works closely with our Research and Development Department to ensure that the latest advances become available to our customers without delay. Close dialogue and partnership with our customers means that we are the first to spot new opportunities that can enhance foundry performance and provide superior return on investment.

Reducing energy consumption
DISA has developed a unique Streamlined Gating System which helps reduce the overall energy costs in foundries while ensuring a high level of consistency in the mould filling process. By changing from a conventional gating system to a DISA Streamlined Gating System it is possible to reduce the weight of the gating system and thereby reduce the amount of metal used in every mould leading to a reduction in the melting capacity needed for a given production.
“We have started to implement the DISA Streamlined Gating Systems in our everyday production and so far with great success. We have experienced a high consistency in our casting surface appearance, hence, making our castings very attractive. In addition, we have obtained a higher production rate due to a minimized pouring time and we see the reduced melting demand as a welcome saving."
