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

With a Linx date code printer you can ensure consistently readable date codes. Ask about covid-safe installation!

Expiration Date Printing

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

Using simple on screen prompts new formats can be easily created and stored as templates 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, some models also auto-adjust for daylight savings time.

Whether you need expiry dates that are easily readable for your consumers or “closed dating” for meeting regulations on product traceability, Linx have an expiry date printer for every customer need.
