New DISAMATIC D5 completes foundry modernisation at LEDA

High-end domestic stove and fireplace brand and foundry LEDA Werk GmbH & Co KG in Leer, Northern Germany, has commissioned a DISAMATIC D5 moulding line from DISA. It completes a programme of significant investment that saw LEDA’s foundry operations modernised from the ground up. It’s the first machine in the new DISAMATIC D5 range to be delivered to a customer.

About the new moulding line: efficiency in complexity

LEDA’s old DISA 250-C was replaced by the new D5 between the middle of December 2020 and the start of the new year. The new D5 was designed to slot straight into the gap left by a DISA 240 or 250 with key dimensions retained to enable an easy transition to the new technology, not just at LEDA.

LEDA’s new D5 produced its first mould on the 31th of December and started normal production on the 4th of January 2021.

R. Hiller on the milestone: “We are proud to welcome the second of our two new DISAMATIC moulding lines into the LEDA family. Both are at the heart of our production and will ensure the highest quality castings are delivered reliably and responsively for our customers.”

Folkmar Ukena, Managing Director at LEDA explains: “Efficient and high-quality casting production is key for us. We produce in small series, so we need moulding lines that deliver an extremely stable process despite multiple pattern changes per shift. DISAMATIC moulding lines deliver consistent, repeatable and high quality right from the first mould – exactly what we need.”
