The AVBIS 3000P is a completely automated measurement package for bottle preforms. The 3000P incorporates the capabilities and simplicity of the basic AVBIS system into an automated preform measurement tool. The 3000P is used in measurement applications for large volumes of preforms to establish regular data trends, to check production after mold change-outs and/or qualify new molds. Full mold rounds of preforms can be loaded in a tray. The “pick-and-place” auto-feeder selects a preform from the tray for measurement then returns the preform after measurements are completed.


The 3000P shares the same proven optical package with other AVBIS series variants. The pick-and-place feeder configuration allows up to 192 preforms (larger lot sizes possible) to be automatically handled by the system. Varying tray hole sizes allow for preforms of various finish types and sizes to be accommodated.

Part setup of the 3000P is similar to other AVBIS series systems. Automation setup for individual preform types is simple, requiring only that the operator set the loading positions with the touchscreen motion control setup tools. Precise orientation on the rotary table is eliminated as the system automatically searches for the part centerline and finishes.

Despite the complex appearance, the AVBIS 3000P is designed for use by untrained users. An operator loads the preforms into the grid array. Different sized trays can be used to accommodate preforms of varying diameters or varying cavity size. Once loaded, the operator selects the preform program from a touchscreen list, and indicates the number of preforms to be run. The operator can also indicate any blocked-off or unused cavities in the mold that should not be tested.


The 3000P is designed for high volume preform manufacturers with rigorous quality and measurement requirements. Because of its speed and repeatability/reproducibility, the AVBIS 3000P is ideal for those manufacturers seeking to reduce downtime during line start-ups and new mold qualifications, or to satisfy CPK/PPK requirements. The consistent measurement technique of the 3000P also allows operators to monitor, adjust and control production processes when data is sent to SPC software.
