|&T||TT||Die Run Traceability Code|
Date code will be determined by converting the oldest date code from the combined lot to a multiple of six (6) and physically marking "XX" as the die run traceability code.
Example: Date codes 9913, 9803, 9807, 9801. The oldest date code is 9801 therefore the strip/re-mark date code will be 9752XX.
If there is a single date code lot requiring Strip/Re-Mark then the re-mark date code and die run traceability code must remain unchanged.
TO-92, TO-226, TO-237, TO-18 and TO-46 do not require a "XX" following the re-mark date code.
Material which has a date code older than 1 (ONE) year, or which has "A" or "XX" suffix to the date code cannot be re-marked.
