DISAMATIC C3 goes global and launches with three versions after taking the Asian market by storm.
DISA’s entry-level DISAMATIC C3 high-pressure moulding machine is now available globally, following its resounding success in Asia.
The first DISAMATIC C3 moulding line was commissioned in China in August 2016; and in 2017 alone, 22 DISAMATIC C3 lines were installed across Asian markets. With nine new orders already signed, including one in Ukraine, DISA has decided to launch the DISAMATIC C3 globally, in three speed versions: C3-150, C3-250 and C3-350.
Every foundry can be a DISA foundry
The DISAMATIC C3 is a PLC-controlled, high-pressure vertical moulding machine, ideal for foundries that want to improve casting quality and increase productivity by converting from a manual to an automated process, or upgrading their current line to a high-pressure moulding solution. The C3 uses the unique DISAMATIC® blow-squeeze method, which produces a continuous string of vertically parted, flaskless moulds.
As standard, the C3 is equipped with a DISAMATIC dome valve system to close the sand hopper before sand shot. The C3-250 and C3-350 models also come with an automatic core setter.
Lars Hjelm, Global Product Manager at DISA, comments on the global launch: “The DISAMATIC C3 has been a tremendous success in India and China, and the latest sale of a C3-250 to a Ukrainian customer has further proven to us that there’s real demand outside Asia. We’ve therefore decided to go global and make the DISAMATIC C3 available around the world. The DISAMATIC C3 is the perfect moulding line for ambitious foundries who want to achieve a step-change in performance with a relatively small investment. For our customers in China and India, where the DISAMATIC C3 has been operational for up to 18 months now, it has been a real game-changer.”
