Food Processing Equipment

With our 3D-engineering and product development team, consisting of around 15 experts, we operate as a turnkey partner in stainless steel machine manufacturing. As a strengthening factor to our production capacity and technical possibilities, we offer our customers extensive knowledge on effective and hygienic engineering for the food processing industry. In this way, we offer added value to customer-specific machines and/or production systems. Furthermore, we can apply our knowledge on the latest production techniques to be able to manufacture existing designs in a way that is smarter in terms of costs or applications.

High-end machinery engineering

A growing number of organizations chooses  to outsource not only the production, but also the engineering of subsections of their projects and products so that the responsibility for designing, manufacturing and production costs can be assigned to one single third party. Many of our assignments for OEM’s of food processing equipment, systems for internal logistics, recycling machines and other stainless steel machines and modules start from production line layout or machine concept and then they are entirely engineered by our people.

Team of engineers

Engineering is entirely in 3D so that the manufacturability and cost price of the product can be pre-assessed, even during the design phase. In our organization, knowhow of design, engineering and manufacturing of machines is and will remain all-in. We can also execute redesign machine evolution projects aimed at lowering your integral cost price. In our engineering department we utilize i.e. the following engineering solutions:

Hygienic designing

Due to the many years of experience we have with complex engineering projects for customers in various markets within the global food processing industry, we know that hygiene and cleanability are of great importance to the quality of the end products and therefore also the quality of the production line. Moreover, the norms and demands are constantly developing and getting stricter and thus inventiveness and knowledge of hygienic designing becomes even more valuable. We have trained ourselves in the field of hygienic designing and our engineers do apply this knowledge to the machines we develop and engineer every day.

Project management

Together with our customers we manage turnkey projects from our Project Office. In many of these projects, our shared responsibility includes entire product development, production, construction and installation. All this will be executed in our own facility and be supervised by one of our project managers who are dedicated to one of our specializations.

Key areas of expertise:

VDL Systems designs and manufactures several types of spiral freezers. These machines find their way to the end market through several OEM’s of food processing equipment. Additional to building traditional site-built systems, VDL Systems has developed an unique, hygienic and modular packaged concept that significantly reduces the on-site construction time. This unique spiral system is entirely constructed of stainless steel and can be prefabricated and then installed on-site.

Automatic Trailer (Un)Loading Systems

Trailer (Un)Loading Systems

VDL Systems designs and manufactures fully automatic loading and unloading systems for trailers. These systems find their way to the end market through various OEM’s of food processing equipment and internal logistic systems. Specifically, these systems are developed for industries in which loading and unloading of similar products is common. A fully automatic trailer (un)loading system allows you to speed up supply or to apply uniform supply. Therefore, this technology can be very beneficial in production organizations in which shuttle transport between one main location and multiple loading addresses is common.

Applicable in various industries

The industries for beverages, paper, bulk chemicals or poultry transport are examples of organizations with these characteristics. In fact, for the poultry transport industry, VDL Systems has developed a unique system for handling container units in which broilers are being transported to the slaughterhouses.

In summary, these systems allow a perfect connection between all ingoing and outgoing goods, without any intervening fork trucks  and consequently without fork truck drivers. In essence, the trailer truck driver can load and unload its entire load of goods at once. Moreover, these systems not only reduce damage to the goods, packaging and transport materials, but also reduce the risk of accidents significantly.

Prototyping

Research & Development

VDL Systems is also your partner concerning product development and construction of prototypes. Because of our wide experience in constructing and building stainless steel machines, we are the perfect partner to give a valuable contribution to your product research and development projects, even in the early stages of the project.

Research & testing facilities 

Of course,  VDL Systems also likes to take care of the entire innovation process, from idea, brainstorming, prototyping, testing to serial production. Engineering is entirely in 3D so that the manufacturability and cost price of the product can be pre-assessed, even during the early design phase. In our organization, knowhow of design, engineering and manufacturing is all-in. We can also execute redesign projects aimed at lowering your integral cost price.
