Application Services

Application Services - what is it?

DISA Application Services is a global consultancy service for owners of moulding equipment.


Made up of the world’s best foundry troubleshooters, DISA Application Services team’s deep and broad knowledge of the entire casting process will improve all aspects of foundry performance; whether you are struggling to solve a problem or want to specify new machinery for your moulding line, our expert consultants are ready to help.


We understand the complexity of foundry processes and every type of equipment involved – DISA or non-DISA.  Foundries of all sizes trust DISA Application Services team to do a review and tackle issues such as:

  • high scrap rates
  • poor surface finish
  • low productivity
  • mould mismatch and sand inclusions
  • sand burn and hot tear

Intelligence that improves performance

DISA Application specialists evaluate every last detail to diagnose a problem’s cause - from machine settings, sand mixing and optimal mould density to metal properties, pattern design and surface finish - then they guide you through the improvement journey, testing and measuring, making recommendations and managing their implementation.  DISA Application Services Team will be with you through the entire project.


Results driven


The team will ensure that the foundry will be working at peak performance after their recommendations have been implemented, including:

  • reduced scrap rate, a faster process or higher output
  • higher productivity and casting quality
  • significant bottom line benefits

The DISA Application team continues to work with us to improve our cookware pattern gating and optimize our casting process. The results are everything we hoped for: less scrap and higher cookware quality.

Diagnostics at your disposal

Complex foundry operations require sophisticated diagnostics. The Application Services team can access high-tech tools often unavailable to smaller foundries and they know exactly how to apply them to pinpoint your problem’s root cause.

Mass spectrometry analysis reveals a casting’s chemical make-up while Magmasoft simulation software provides a comprehensive toolbox for optimizing casting designs, tooling layouts and production processes.
