CASTING INNOVATIONS


Controlling Mold Accuracy DISA, a global provider of foundry


technology, is launching the Mould Accuracy Controller (DISA MAC), a new high-precision measuring device that captures mold-related mismatch, mold gaps, mold steps and parallelism for each mold before pouring. Te DISA MAC helps identify is-


sues around mold alignment before they become a problem—that is, before they result in unnecessary rework or scrapping of one, more or many castings. Te device consists of a bridge-like


scanning bracket that is mounted across the mold string between the molding machine and the pouring unit. Tis bracket is equipped with laser sensors that continuously scan along the mold string, tracing specifically designed impressions on each mold. Software then uses these readings to


calculate key alignment parameters and identify issues according to customer pre- set limits. A warning light on top of the bracket alerts the operator to any issues via a simple traffic light system. “Te DISA MAC allows foundries to keep a constant eye on the mold string, collecting key dimensional data and flagging issues before it’s too late. Te DISA MAC ensures that

only good, perfectly aligned molds are poured,” said Kasper Paw Madsen, global product manager digital solu- tions, DISA. “Te potential reduction in rework and scrap as well as the improvement in casting precision is significant. It’s a simple device, but thanks to the software behind it, it could well revolutionize the casting process for our customers.” In addition to the warning light on top of the DISA MAC bracket, opera- tors can access more detailed DISA MAC data at the operator panel of the molding machine, viewing real-time data in dashboard, table or graph views. For even deeper analysis of his- torical DISA MAC data, the system


comes with a free version of the DISA Foundry Cockpit, a powerful new data platform for foundries. “Tere’s great potential in the


dimensional data captured by the DISA MAC that can be analyzed over time and correlated with other data to get an ever deeper understanding of your pro- cess,” Kasper said. “Te DISA Foundry Cockpit creates the foundation for this type of analysis, not just for DISA MAC data, but for any type of foundry process data.”


The DISA MAC is available


now, either as an option for all new DISAMATIC D3 molding lines or as retrofits for existing DISAMAT- IC D3 equipment.
