One of the foundations of every piece of VDE Equipment is the simplicity with which is it built.


This results in less (and easier) maintenance, and less potential for downtime during the life of the equipment.

Ease of Sanitation.

All of our equipment is built with attention to detail when it comes to sanitation.


A combination of simplicity and simple details in construction result in what little sanitation that is required, being very easy to carry out.



Quick and easy adjustment of lane widths.


Simple changes to fit various tray sizes.

Designed. Tested. Refined.


Based on a design from the mid-80's and patented in 1990, the current generation of VDE Tray Loader  is built on the back of decades of refinement.


The same system has been used on everything from cookies, to rice crackers and fig newtons - even donuts!


Now in its fifth generation, the system works on full servo control, which is completely controllable from the HMI. This is just one of the several improvements, while keeping the same simplicity and maintenance.

Full width from the oven band, sandwiched cookies, loaded straight into their trays. One machine, in-line, compact, mobile, and simple.
