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 lot codes are legible.

Printing Batch and Lot Codes

Linx coding and marking machines are all designed to print clear and durable batch numbers directly onto either manufactured goods or packaging. Whether you are tracking a part between automotive factories or safeguarding food against a recall, you can be confident that our batch coding printers will identify your products with the highest quality codes. Data is instantaneously available through lot numbers printed with Linx’s commitment to coding excellence.

Linx printers are designed with you in mind, program lot numbers with ease through our user-friendly interface, with most models providing touch screen operation. With options available for every production environment such as our portable continuous inkjet printer, the Linx 10, or permanent options like our lasers, or IP rated machines for dusty or wet environments, batch coding becomes an integrated and reliable part of any manufacturing process.

Batch Coding Machines

Continuous Inkjet (CIJ): Linx CIJ printers are designed to be durable and functional, while meeting the highest standards of coding quality. Linx offers a wide range of inks that will keep batch codes in place on nearly any substrate and can withstand harsh production environments.

Laser Coder: Laser printers are ideal for batch coding. Without the use of consumables, lasers deliver a cost-efficient option for printing permanent codes. Linx Laser Printers are designed to function in challenging, high-speed production environments while still printing exceptionally legible text.

Large Character Ink Jet: With the ability to print clear text and graphics onto porous substrates, Linx Large Character Inkjet Printers are a cost-effective alternative to labels and pre-printed boxes. These high-resolution printers guarantee efficiency and quality when printing on difficult substrates.

Thermal Transfer Overprinter: Linx Thermal Transfer Printers guarantee a cost-friendly and user-friendly experience, without sacrificing print quality. Using clutchless ribbon drives, the risk of ribbon breaks is minimal, while maximizing production uptime. This simple printer can fulfill lot marking needs in industries ranging from pharmaceutical to food.
