Conveyor loaded bottle dimensional measurement system.

AVBIS-C Automated Bottle Measurement System


The AVBIS-C incorporates the measurement capabilities and simple operation of AVBIS-M into an auto-loading platform blown bottles.


System operation is simple: the user loads the bottles onto the conveyor, selects the program for the bottle loaded, and indicates the number to be measured. The system automatically handles, measures, ejects, and provides data for all the bottles, freeing the user for other tasks.



  • Flexible; standard system accommodates a wide range of bottle sizes and geometries.

  • Fully automated; 'load-and-go' operation enhances lab productivity.
  • Robust construction designed for constant use.
  • Precision; <10% gauge repeatability study performed on each AVBIS-C.
  • Preform capable (manual-load).

By adjusting the bottle loading and unloading speeds and contact points, even lightweight and unstable bottles can be handled automatically by the AVBIS-C. Quick-change parts for the loading arm can be used to load unusual shapes for the customer.

The AVBIS-C can also be used to measure preforms (if loaded manually). This additional flexibility allows bottle manufacturers to perform infrequent preform checks and qualifications.

With minor modifications, the AVBIS-C can be utilized in glass bottle applications (AVBIS-G).
