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 numbers or lot codes are legible and consistent.

Our batch coding machines are all designed to print clear and durable batch numbers either directly onto manufactured goods or packaging. Whether you are tracking a part between production sites, need to ensure batch traceability or safeguard against product recalls, you can expect reliable product identification every time with Linx batch coding machines.
