Batch, Lot and Date Coding

Manufacturers are challenged to increase production to increase market share. Adding to the challenge is the requirement to apply consistent batch, lot and date codes on their products. 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 date marking helps provide full traceability and is crucial in the event of a recall or quality compliance issue.

A key component in maintaining quality production is to identify a coding and marking supplier that is well equipped to meet unique needs with cost-effective, reliable and low maintenance solutions. Diagraph’s portfolio of printers can print several lines of text at high speeds even in harsh production environments, making it easy for manufacturers to make the perfect mark.
