Inspired by ‘better’
At DISA, we’ve always been about innovative engineering and creative thinking. About looking at all the different ways we can achieve one goal. Better.
It’s a process that starts with our customers. We listen, learn, draw on the experience and knowledge of our in-house R&D team - from mathematical engineers and control technicians, to foundry-floor specialists with decades of machinery management under their belts – and develop exciting solutions that will add value to any foundry.
Solutions like DISAMATIC, our world leading vertical moulding machine for lower costs, greater precision and higher yields. Like Adjustable Squeeze Distribution, industry-first functionality that ensures exactly the right pressure is applied in exactly the right spot to perfectly match mould pattern complexity and surface texture requirements. And like DISA MAC, our Mould Accuracy Controller, which uses clever measuring automation and sophisticated software to guarantee perfect ‘pre-pour mould alignment’ for precision casting that reduces waste, improves mould quality and delivers consistency.

With foundries, one size never fits all. And we love that. It’s why we’ve developed such a varied range of cast iron equipment (vertical, match plate and horizontal green sand), foundry equipment, solutions and services.
Whatever the scale. Whatever the production scope. We can always help.
It’s also why we’ve invested in pioneering foundry virtualisation technology that allows us to test, push and optimise solutions before they are even in the field.
Collaboration is key
Innovation in isolation? No. For us, the best developments come from collaboration. And at DISA, this takes many forms.
For example, 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.
We have a dedicated ‘innovation box’ on our factory floor which brings workshop engineers and research professionals together for faster solution development. And our Foundry Optimization department is deliberately located just 10 steps always from our Research and Development team to ensure the latest advances become available to customers as quickly as possible.
Improved product costs, sand casting quality and higher total-up time. Working in partnership with customers and each other, makes innovation possible.
Decades of innovation
The respect for and our protection of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) is an integrated part of our thinking. We respect the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) of others. When creating new innovation IPR is incorporated into several stages of our development process. We protect new innovations with patents when feasible.
