Acasi Machinery: Automatic inline bottle unscrambler
Able to work on existing or new conveyors, ACASI Machinery’s TruSort-32 Automatic Bottle Unscrambler is a compact and economical system capable of handling containers from 0.5- to 4-in. wide and from 1- to 7-in. tall using a 31.5-in. diameter pre-feeder built at an angle to minimize bottle damage.
