Press Release - Next Generation Bottle Unscrambler


Countryside, IL (USA). July, 2005.

Expanding on its product solutions for plastic bottle unscrambling, Nalbach Engineering Company announces the release of the newNECOSORT-III, third generation unscrambler. This unique machine sorts a range of bottle types and its design consists of a rotating vertical hopper and only two moving parts.

The NECOSORT-III’s unique design employs a sorting hopper that is turned vertically, significantly reducing the overall footprint of the system for easy integration into tight production areas.

Only two moving parts in the whole system, one of which sorts and moves all of the bottles to the discharge starwheel and the second being the discharge starwheel itself, means significantly less maintenance and downtime. There are no reciprocating motions, complicated mechanisms or hard to adjust container handling parts.

The system is tolerant of damaged bottles keeping high speed production lines such as soft drink, juice and water filling lines in operation. The NECOSORT-III has been designed for high speed, high uptime applications.

The NECOSORT-III’s design provides a “queue” of bottles for each sorting “pocket” insuring very high machine efficiencies.

The drive system and all other major components are easily accessible for routine maintenance. Maintenance personnel are not required to get down on hands and knees to service the NECOSORT-III.

The NECOSORT-III comes standard with an easy to use touch screen machine controller with speed settings for each bottle type.

Designed with only two moving parts, virtually eliminating downtime, the NECOSORT-III carries a three-year warranty.

This exciting new product is available worldwide through Nalbach’s direct sales and manufacturers reps and will be on display at the Pack Expo Las Vegas 2005 show (Booth C-2110) September 26-28, 2005 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.
