Videojet specialises in inkjet, laser and other types of batch number printers, as well as labellers to apply batch numbers onto products.

In industrial terms, the batch number is the designation, in numbers and/or letters, to identify and trace a set of identical products that share certain characteristics of production (production time, production date, identification code, etc.). This number ensures product traceability and data on the history and background of the product.

Batch number printers or batch coders are terms commonly used by operators and maintenance managers for coding machines used to print or apply a label of the batch number onto the product.

Depending on the support surface on which the batch number is printed (e.g. plastic bags, cardboard boxes, cables, heat shrinkable sleeves, raffia sacks, sacks, kraft paper bags, PET bottles, metal or any other material), Videojet offers different options for batch coding your product.
