Batch Coding

Batch coding (also known as lot coding) is a critical part of traceability. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines the code as “a specific identified portion of a batch, that is uniform and that is intended to meet specifications for identity, purity, and composition”. With regulations continuously strengthening to protect consumers, producers across many industries must take care to ensure that their batch or lot codes are legible and consistent.

Batch Number & Lot Code Printing

Our batch code printers are all designed to print clear and durable batch numbers directly onto either manufactured goods or packaging. Whether you are tracking a part between production sites, ensuring traceability or safeguarding against recalls, ensure reliable product identification with the highest quality codes from Linx batch code printers.

Every Linx batch coding machine is designed with you in mind. Consistently print batch numbers using predefined coding templates and set up with ease via our user-friendly interface, most models provide convenient and simple touchscreen operation.

Options are available for every production environment with permanent marking options through Linx laser batch coders or our popular continuous inkjet printer, the Linx 8900, both with IP rated machines suitable for dusty or wet environments.

With Linx, batch coding becomes an integrated and reliable part of any manufacturing process. Contact a Linx representative today to discuss your requirements and find the best batch code printing machine for your needs!
