We understand sand

What you should know about us: We, Dosier- und Automationstechnik GmbH (datec), are the only company in Europe that, for the past 25 years, has been supporting the modernisation of electrical equipment for your moulding sand treatment, from the planning as a manufacturer, to the delivery, and right through to the commissioning stage.

The company Dosier- und Automationstechnik GmbH (specialising in dosing and automation technology) was created from the company SMG (Steuerungsmessgeräte - measuring devices for control systems), which since 1948 has been drawing on its experience in manufacturing and use of moisture measurement devices for mineral bulk materials and capacitative fill level sensors. At the time, the predominant areas of application of the devices on offer were for the production of concrete, ceramic, glass and cereals as well as casting. In the 1980s microprocessor technology was implemented in the existing systems. This allowed the scope of tasks to be extended to include representation of moisture measurement, automatic water dosing through to overall control of dosing and mixing stations, including the power supply unit.

From our company headquarters in Braunschweig we have been marketing electrical equipment for sand treatment for foundries globally for around 25 years. As part of this work, we distinguish between instruments to measure for example moisture content, compressive strength or compactibility of the moulding sand, and electronic control systems, which ensure that sand treatment processes can take place in a safe and automated way. To complement our company’s range of services, we also programme visualisations which allow a comprehensive view of all plant components within the foundry.

The recipe for success of our activities is in the constant further development of our knowledge concerning the characteristics and processes involved with bulk material (moulding sand) – particularly in relation to water. The precise understanding of the spatial interplay between the bulk material and water allows us to manage treatment processes in sand treatment in a significantly more meaningful way. With our research projects (e.g. ZIM – Central Innovation Programme for SMEs), we are both ensuring that our knowledge is at the cutting edge and also laying the foundations for progress in sand treatment.

We provide reliable aftersales support to our customers through regular inspections. A team of twelve, predominantly consisting of mechanics, programmers and engineers, currently manages the aforementioned areas of work.

Our quality management
Since 1997 datec has been certified in accordance with ISO 9001 by Norske Veritas. The following definition was given to an element of quality management: “A guarantee for this solid work is early planning and comprehensive 100% final verification of the systems being supplied. The significance of this approach can be determined in that it is not possible to supply “off-the-peg” goods, specifically for compact control systems. They must be adapted to customer-specific circumstances. Early agreement and constant contact with customers ensures that the systems’ quality is satisfactory and avoids misunderstandings and costly modification work”.

The unique character comes from the differences between the various sand treatment processes in the world of foundries.

Simulation as a powerful quality management tool
When programming control systems, things can quickly become awkward as a result of programming without a safety net, as the system to be controlled is not readily available fully constructed on the doorstep. On-site programming is expensive and more protracted than in the software office. A comprehensive software simulation will help alleviate this awkwardness. A separate programme simulates inflows and outflows by representing the dynamic behaviour. It not only represents the time lag of the final position signal of a weighing door, but also the corresponding weighing signal. In this way, all signals, up to manual operation, are represented. This allows control programmes to be completed on a very timely basis with a low on-site programming requirement. In this way, systems can be commissioned quickly, particularly for PLC upgrades such as from S5 to S7.

DISA: a company that understands your industry, and turns your challenges into innovation.

DISA is the leading global provider of innovative foundry technology and the world-leading supplier of complete foundry solutions and services as well as state-of-the-art moulding equipment.

In order to understand the rather complex business that foundry solutions and services are, you might consider pulling up next to a DISA employee, the next time you stop your car at a red light. He or she will tell you that several of your car’s components most likely are made by way of DISA technology, including the brake discs, engine blocks, arms, etc. And if you strike up a good conversation with the DISA employee in question, you might be in for yet another treat that proves how DISA is truly a company that knows what’s cooking: A lot of the professional, top-notch kitchen ware found in cupboards and cabinets all over the globe, including yours, is made from DISA moulds.

… So even though you may not be a foundry owner or iron works specialist, you are exposed to the final products of DISA daily – whether it is through being the proud owner of a car or a home chef whipping up a recipe for success with high-quality kitchenware.
World-class engineering
DISA is driven by an unwavering focus on leading the foundry industry and staying competitive for the benefit and satisfaction of its customers. The fact that the company is founded on innovation means that DISA continuously seeks to engineer change, build sustainability, lead technology, and shape industry.  In parallel to DISA’s strong global outreach under the Norican Group banner – with 2,300 employees in 50 countries on 5 continents and a customer base of more than 16,000 companies in 100 countries – the company has strong Danish roots. DISA remains committed to a 200-year tradition of Danish engineering and world-class expertise. However, having the entire world as its workplace and market focus also means that DISA always strive to harness its collective diversity by way of mutual intercultural respect and global teamwork.

In short: World-class engineering is what DISA brings to the table when foundries of all sizes seek to expand their operations – whether their expansion is happening in the Americas, Europe, India, China, The Middle East or Russia.

Massive global footprint through the broadest industry offer and after sales

DISA develops and manufactures a complete range of metal casting production solutions for the ferrous and non-ferrous foundry industries. A long-standing tradition of innovation and accumulating knowledge from all over the world has consolidated DISA’s global footprint and made the company a preferred partner that enjoys the trust and loyalty of foundries worldwide.

DISA has the broadest industry offer with a moulding product portfolio, comprising vertical (DISAMATIC®), match plate (DISA MATCH) and horizontal (DISA FLEX) green sand moulding systems. Additionally, DISA provides complete, integrated foundry lines for a wide variety of customers – lines which, in addition to the moulding technology platforms, include complete sand plants, conveyor systems, cooling drums, cleaning solutions, CIM modules and core machine plants.

Following the merger with Wheelabrator in 2009, placing DISA under the Norican banner, the DISA shot blast offer was rebranded ‘Wheelabrator’. You will find all information related to surface preparation and shot blast technology in the Wheelabrator section of this website.

DISA Innovation

DISA is a well-known brand name in the moulding industry because of our excellence in especially vertical but also horizontal and matchplate moulding. Our long history and strong experience with innovative moulding technology has entailed that DISA today delivers moulding solutions that will add value to any foundry.
Our commitment and expertise within moulding means that we, throughout the years, have been able to keep improving our product range and ourselves. This effort has today resulted in a strong competitive situation within many different types of moulding solutions. The many dedicated engineers that make up our R&D team are continually supporting this positive development in order to secure DISA’s lead in the market, supplying innovative moulding solutions including sand preparation, moulding lines, core technology and comprehensive after sales services.

The moulding market of today will not be the same market tomorrow. Like customers in other foundry-related markets, customers within moulding are in the process of consolidation – becoming fewer but larger while undergoing specialisation and automation. This market evolution means we have higher standards to meet and set which will keep DISA on top of these progressions and equipped to supply our customers with technology leading solutions. We will build on our customer relationships and work in close cooperation with the market to improve product costs, central controls, near net shape and higher total-up time.
