What is a batch number?

The batch number(also known as lot number) of a product is composed of different identification codes, which are related to the product, production line, production date, production time, etc. Based on these variables, a code is created throughout the product life cycle to track where the product goes. Whether it is food, pharmaceutical products, or automobile production lines, batch numbers will be used. This code is essential for product traceability, enabling producers to keep track of individual products throughout the production, processing, and distribution stages.

The importance of batch number printing

Printing the batch number( lot number) is the process of adding an identification code (usually a set of letters and numbers) to a set of products that are produced at the exact same time, date, and location. Batch numbers are critical for product recalls. If consumers, retailers, or anyone downstream of the supply chain finds a problem with the product, the problem product can be traced through the product batch number and a targeted recall, rather than a large-scale general recall, which greatly reduces costs.

Some countries even have laws requiring the use of a single code at all stages of production, transportation, and even sales. A batch coding machine is a machine used to print such codes.

Application industries of batch coding machine

Batch codes are especially important to businesses that manufacture and sell food and beverage products, as well as the corresponding retailers and end consumers. In the food and beverage industry, the type of batch coding printer required may vary depending on the material of the object to be coded. For example, it is sometimes used to print batch codes on flexible food packaging, such as bread packaging; sometimes it needs to be printed on the surface of the food itself, such as on eggshells; and sometimes it needs to be printed on glass, metal and another hard material packaging, such as Beer bottles, cans, etc.

Healthcare Industry

Batch coding machine IS vital to the pharmaceutical industry. The law usually requires that pharmaceutical packaging be printed with the production date, expiration date, anti-counterfeiting data matrix code, etc. Adding codes to medicines can help ensure that medicines and medical devices are effectively monitored and prevented from being misused.
