DISAMATIC C3

The DISAMATIC C3 fully meets the needs of small and medium-size foundries for efficient and up-to-date castings production.

Based on a design focusing on maximum capacity for minimum investment, the DISAMATIC C3 delivers high Return On Investment (ROI) over a long service life, even in cases where capacity is not always fully utilised. 

Straightforward operation and maintenance

The mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical systems are all based on straightforward principles enabling operation and preventive maintenance to be based on general skills.

 

Quality that pays

DISA is renowned for engineering and design quality that delivers:

  • High uptime
  • Less scrap
  • Lower finishing costs
  • Higher profitability over a longer service life

Design that pays

The new DISAMATIC C3 is designed specifically for small and medium-size foundries that need:
  • Up to 250 uncored moulds per hour and/or up to 220 cored moulds per hour
  • Mould sizes of 480 x 600 x 120-340 mm or 535 x 650 x 120-340 mm
  • High pressure double-sided squeeze for high-density mould consistency
  • Straightforward operation and maintenance
  • Lower capital investment
  • Shorter payback time
  • Many years of profitable service

The DISAMATIC C3 incorporates many leading technologies developed by DISA to satisfy increasing health, safety and operational efficiency demands.

Eight ways to sustainable growth

  • Enhance workplace air quality, minimise consumption of spray liquids and prevent pattern plate wear with the DISAMATIC C3 in-chamber spray
  • Safe working environment and shorter maintenance time with easy maintenance access
  • Reduce physical exertion and the risk of accidents, and dramatically cut lost production time between runs with the Quick Pattern Change Unit
  • Enhance employee safety and increase production efficiency using automatic core setting
  • Eliminate human error and save time with process automation based on Siemens PLC with pre-programming from the operator console
  • Maximise energy efficiency and minimise oil-cooling requirements with variable hydraulic pump system
  • Quieter operation means a more comfortable working environment
  • All components and equipment are manufactured using environmentally friendly materials and processes according to ISO 14001 certification

DISAMATIC C3

A vertical machine for customers wanting to convert from a jolt squeeze or manual process to an automated vertical moulding process.

“DISAMATIC for Everyone”

The DISAMATIC C3 offers the following features:

  • Perfect entry capacity – 150-250 moulds per hour
  • Manual core setting – 120 moulds per hour (incl. 15sec. core setting time)
  • Improved casting quality
  • Possible to upgrade to 250 moulds per hour (if you begin with the C3-150)
  • Optimizing your foundry efficiency
  • Suitable for Jobbing & flexible foundries

The DISAMATIC C3 is a compact vertical moulding machine with the power and precision to increase competitive edge, for foundries producing higher quality of castings at lower cost per kg.

Manual Core setting

The DISAMATIC C3-150 is equipped with a manual core setting function as standard. The machine is capable of running 120mph which includes 15 second Core setting time. A pneumatic door opens automatically in the side of the machine, the operator set the cores manually, closes the door, hereafter the next mould will automatically be made.

It is perfectly suited for jobbing foundries as the cores can be set manually without any additional hassle of making fixtures or core masks. The operator setting the cores has ample space.

DISAMATIC C3

For the production of a wide range of grey, ductile iron and other metal castings in many different sizes

Improved casting quality

It is generally known today that jolt squeeze and manual made moulds have a rather soft mould surface and high casting mismatch. The DISAMATIC C3-150 makes the “well known” hard surface DISA mould quality. The hard and precise mould will give you following benefits:

  • High quality casting surface (depending on the AFS grain size)
  • Precise castings

 

 

Perfect entry capacity

The DISAMATIC C3-150 offers a speed of 150mph without cores and 120mph with manual core setting. The machine uses approximately 15-25t/hour sand depending on the speed of the machine.

The DISAMATIC C3-150 is a perfect machine for foundries needing to reduce the number of workers and looking for a cost effective moulding solution.

“The world’s best sought technology to produce green sand castings now available for every foundry”.

 

 

We at APEX SME foundry tried to upgrade our conventional foundry to machine moulding two years back with lowest investment but the result achieved was unsatisfactorily. Now with DISA initiative we are upgrading our foundry with DISAMATIC C3-150 , we believe, it’s the right choice as it gives 120 moulds/hour with manual core setting and having world famous DISAMATIC in my foundry changes my business.
