Batch coding (sometimes known as lot coding) is an important aspect of traceability. A unique identifier is used by manufacturers to identify a certain batch of products. The batch code allows firms to track items based on when they were manufactured, which supply sources they came from, and which production line they were manufactured on. This ensures that product problems and customer complaints may be investigated quickly and effectively. A batch number or alpha-numeric code is often placed directly to a product or onto secondary packaging to represent batch codes.
Batch numbers were previously applied manually with pencils, stamps, or labels, but batch coding is now frequently done by machine to assure batch code clarity and consistency, improved production volumes, and lower labor costs. Batch code printers are frequently built into production lines and used to mark products as they are made or packed.
Our batch code printers are built to print clear, long-lasting batch numbers directly onto products, manufactured items, and packaging. Linx batch printers can assure reliable product identification with the finest quality lot codes, whether you’re monitoring a part between production locations, ensuring traceability, or safeguarding against recalls.
There are options for every manufacturing environment: laser batch coders provide permanent marking, and our famous continuous inkjet printer, the Linx 8900, can code in a range of ink colors. Both have an IP certification that makes them appropriate for dusty or rainy conditions. Batch coding becomes a seamless and dependable aspect of any manufacturing process with Linx.
