Date Coding

Programmed formats, automatic date forward functions, and custom date and time editors, Linx date code printers offer a full range of date coding capabilities

Date coding is an essential part of most production processes. In food and beverage applications expiry date and mfg date codes are integral to consumer safety and meeting governmental regulations. In industrial manufacturing, date marking helps provide full traceability and is crucial in the event of a recall or quality compliance issue.

With a Linx date coder you can ensure consistently readable date codes.

Expiry Date Printers

Linx industrial expiry date printing machines have pre-programmed and customizable date and time formats to match every customer need. With real time clock functions our coders can automatically print manufacture dates and best before or expiry date; adding any number of seconds, hours, days, or months to the current date and time.

Using simple on screen prompts most new formats can be easily created and stored using internal memory. Once the desired format is chosen the date coding printer can be set to variable intervals for forward or backward sequential numbering, with some models even auto-adjusting for daylight savings time.

Whether you need best before dates that are easily readable for your consumers or “closed dating” for meeting regulations on product traceability Linx can meet your specific date printing or marking needs.
