Expanded dimensional measurement system for bottles & preforms.

AVBIS-M Automated Bottle and Preform Measurement System
Repeatability and reproducibility studies <10% on critical dimensions.
Bottle & preform, glass & plastic measurement capability.

AVBIS-M is AVID Corporation's longest running product and forms the base of AVID's line of precision bottle/preform measurement systems. Designed to accommodate a wide range of package geometries, sizes, and materials, AVBIS-M measures dimensions quickly, accurately, and precisely. 


As a manually loaded system, AVBIS-M is an ideal choice for quality focused packagers seeking to improve their measurement capabilities without full automation.


  • Short measurement cycle time: <2s per angle, full routine in <40s.

  • Quick program recall.

  • Simple operation.

  • Automatic data send.

As a manually loaded system, the AVBIS-M does rely on a user to load and unload parts in a series. The AVBIS-M is ideal for those manufacturers new to automated measurement system looking to replace manual tools. The AVBIS-M is also useful for non-production or R&D facilities and fillers looking to qualify supplier quality claims, or vertically integrated processors verifying their production capabilities.

Dimensions Measured

All SPI-ISBT-GPI standard bottle/preform dimensions, including (but not limited to):

  • Overall height

  • S
