  • The DISA MATCH 14/19 and 20/24 machine can reach speeds of up to 180 uncored moulds per hour.
  • It delivers a maximum machine-related mismatch of only 0.2mm (0.25 for the two larger mould-size versions). 
  • Maintenance-friendly design, including easy access to the moulding area, reliable service support and wrap-around preventive maintenance ensure your DISA MATCH moulding line is up and running when you need it.
 

With clever features, it's a match you can count on

Quality moulds, lower costs

The DISA MATCH’s rigid design and smooth operation produces premium-quality moulds with

  • maximum machine-related mismatch of between 0.2 and 0.25mm (depending on mould size)
  • DISA in-chamber parting spray system to prevent sand sticking to the pattern plate
  • patented sand slot design for optimum mould quality

These features mean DISA MATCH delivers consistently higher casting quality with less need for machining – keeping finishing costs to a minimum.

Deep pockets, perfectly filled

The sand blow system deployed in the DISA MATCH is based on 50 years of experience. It ensures effective sand filling, even of deep-pocket moulds, with no need for ram-up blocks and is easy to clean.

Fully adjustable stripping height and acceleration protect mould integrity and optimise the cycle time, while the adaptable mould height system ensures a constant sand-metal ratio.

Easy conversion from manual to automatic

Simple adaptors let you reuse existing jolt squeeze pattern plates or other matchplate patterns in the DISA MATCH machine with only few modifications.*

That makes upgrading from jolt squeeze or other matchplate technologies to DISA MATCH quick and painless. Our experts are ready to help you apply this proven solution.

* Subject to evaluation as some patterns may not be suitable for conversion.

Options that make a difference

Perfect for your process

For maximum output every match machine model combines high speed, fast pattern changes and consistent mould quality with low mismatch.  Fully integrated PLC and hydraulic systems regulate every movement.

Sophisticated adaptive mould thickness control comes as standard, ensuring consistent mould thickness even when sand properties change. Added to the super-rigid machine frames and guide rods, this produces very high casting accuracy and repeatability.  Additional features include:

  • fixed cope for flexible mould changes and extra-precise stripping
  • enhanced pattern carrier design (28/32 and 32/32) 

Flexible, clean operation…

DISA MATCH offers fast and simple pattern changes with completely flexible, easily-adjusted Down Sprue positions. 

Operators have increased workspace, with a cleaner and quieter working environment.  Additional benefits include:

  • in-chamber pattern spray reduces parting fluid usage and airborne parting fluid
  • light curtain for easy and safe operation
  • large colour VDU for user-friendly operation and trouble shooting
