The B305 gauge is a modular system that can inspect and measure to find all of your preform defects. Each module can be selected by the customer allowing the configuration to suit your quality control needs. Dimensional measurements are calibrated automatically and can be traced to UKAS standards giving the user a full shot quality overview in approximately 15 minutes.


A full range of modular inspection station options, enables the customer to identify the inspection requirements and configure a system to suit the needs of the production facility. 


Automatic thread start alignment provides unrivalled ‘absolute’ dimensional measurement system performance, for both Neck and Body features, traceable and certified to UKAS Standards. 


Using state-of-the-art optical technology and illumination the system can provide a wide variety of defect analysis for features such as Gate and Seal, Body Defects and Plastic Flow. 


The UV and Colour Inspection quickly provides checks on UV transmission rates and Colour data against customer preform specification.


The loading bowl feeder, enables the operator to load full shots of preforms, with traceable measurement results provided by the Cavity Identification Module.
