AVBIS-Q (formerly "QUIKCHEK") is AVID Corporation’s ‘entry-level’ precision measurement platform for bottles and preforms. The uncomplicated design of the AVBIS-Q is ideal for manufacturers seeking a low-cost limited measurement system for bottles or preforms. The lower cost of AVBIS-Q also makes the system attractive to those smaller facilities looking to enhance their measurement capabilities, but do not require the automation of the AVBIS-C or P series.

During the installation, change-out or maintenance of a mold, technicians must take “first-articles” to the QA lab for basic measurement checks. While laboratory qualifications are necessary for final approval, deploying AVBIS-Q to the production area enhances efficiency for the production team and reduces downtime on the production equipment.


The large optical field of view of AVBIS-Q allows most neck finishes (and in some cases, entire bottles) to be measured without horizontal motion control (maximum diameter measurement: 90mm). Parts are handled automatically via a servo controlled rotary stage for precision searches and automatic measurement routines. This load-and-go operation is perfect for those facilities with limited staff.


AVBIS-Q borrows the setup features from the AVBIS system that makes new part setup so easy.


AVBIS-Q feedback has been positive:

"If my production line must wait two hours for the lab to get to my parts, that’s two hours of production I lose. By having [AVBIS-Q] on the floor, I can get the data I need to start production confidently.” – Silgan Plastics

“With other jobs in queue, it can sometimes take two hours for the QA lab to be able to measure start-up samples. [With AVBIS-Q], setup doesn’t have to wait for the QA lab to tell them which data is good and bad. [They] are able to measure at changeover, see that the data is okay, and go into production sure that the bottles are good. [AVBIS-Q] has made life a lot easier.” – Amcor Rigid Plastics
