Virtual Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI)

4 October 2020

During the Covid-19 pandemic period, attending a Pre-Delivery Inspection became a challenge for one of our US customers. While time for delivery was critical (and weeks of quarantine undesired) we at DTS searched for a solution. And found one!

At DTS we built auger conveying and thermal processing solutions for various business segments of the food processing industry. Early in 2020 we were rewarded a processing line to prepare whole mini-cucumbers, red and green peppers and other whole products to be canned for one of our customers in the US. Part of the agreement was to perform a wet commissioning of the system with product during the pre-delivery inspection.

At DTS we have the space available and are equipped with the tools and people to perform this service. As the customer was unable to travel to us due to government restrictions, we have contracted our marketing partner to shoot a 360 degree video with a unique multi – camera tool while we ran the line. The customer was able to attend the test on an Oculus VR Headset that we shipped to them. The system works interactively so that the viewer can decide where to go and what to zoom into.

Unable to attend your next PDI at DTS? Or no time available? Ask us for what we can do!


When it comes to building auger based conveying and thermal processing solutions accuracy and narrow tolerances are of utmost importance. Not enough tolerance can create mechanical damage, too much tolerance may cause product damage or unhygienic spots. At DTS we built auger conveyors from small to extra-large diameter and length. Even at impressively large systems, DTS maintains a narrow tolerance over the full length and diameter of the auger and housing. A combination of smart designs and skilled technicians in our workshop ensure that each machine produced at DTS conforms with the quality standards we are known for world-wide. Our high finishing and hygienic standards are synonymous with our built quality and our people take pride in driving these standards.
