10 million moulds in under 5 years: DISAMATIC C3-350 delivers incredible uptime with high quality and low maintenance


Since Chinese foundry Guangzhou Deshan CNC Technology Co. Ltd. installed its first DISAMATIC C3-350 machine in December 2017, this green sand, vertical moulding line has produced more than 10 million moulds. The moulding machine runs 24/7 and produces an average of over 7,000 moulds every day.

With a 1.2% scrap rate, the DISA machine adds outstanding quality and high uptime to its blazing speed. The line is incredibly low maintenance, freeing up over 2 hours extra production time per day compared to the foundry’s previous moulding machine supplied by a DISA competitor. Impressed by its performance and reliability, Guangzhou Deshan is about to buy another DISAMATIC C3 to expand its annual production capacity to 30,000 tons and beyond.

Low maintenance, genuine parts give 2 hours extra production

Guangzhou Deshan was founded in 2001 and is based in Nansha Guangzhou city, Guangdong province. Before installing the DISAMATIC C3-350, the foundry ran a slower moulding line from a Chinese competitor which had to be maintained and repaired for 2.5 hours every day, losing valuable production time. In contrast, the DISAMATIC C3-350 only needs around 20 minutes daily maintenance.

“The DISAMATIC C3 is very durable and is also very simple to maintain,” says Michael Yin, Service Manager at DISA Asia Pacific. “Guangzhou Deshan has also chosen to only fit original DISA spare parts. Because these OEM parts fit perfectly and have longer lifetimes, that means less planned and unplanned downtime. In the end, that gives the foundry the lowest running costs.”


Speed plus quality, made in China

Available in three speeds (up to 350 uncored moulds per hour) and in a range of sizes, the DISAMATIC C3 can produce a wide variety of grey iron, ductile iron and other metal castings. The two faster models can be fitted with an optional automatic coresetter. The DISAMATIC C3 offers maximum performance for minimum investment, and a high ROI over a long service life.

“The DISAMATIC C3 uses advanced vertical moulding technology that easily outperforms its competitors but it is also flexible and cost-effective,” says Mr Gu. “It’s the clever choice for foundries that want to grow quickly.”


“DISAMATICs are famous for combining speed with consistent high quality and uptime,” says Leon Gu, VP After Sales at DISA Asia Pacific. “The DISAMATIC C3 is purpose-built to offer lower-volume foundries a big speed and quality boost. It produces small series or lower volumes economically and, on top of that, is an affordable, China-built machine that DISA can supply quickly to the Chinese market with outstanding local service and spares support.”
