BWS express labels

With Brady's Express Labels app, you can design complex identification labels on any smartphone. Practical label design wizards are included for flag labels, sleeves, self-laminating labels and patch panel labels. Designs can be sent with a single touch to a compatible Brady printer including the BMP51 Label Maker, BMP61 Label Printer and BradyPrinter M611.

Easily create lean optimal gauge status labels

BWS Lean app

With predefined templates that can quickly be adapted, the Lean Visuals app enables easy design of complex lean visuals:

  • circular/arched visuals for pressure and magnetic gauges
  • rectangular visuals for drive tensioning
  • min/max level indicators for oil/liquid reservoirs
  • gradient scales to show adjustment points on machinery
  • shapes for drive rotation, adjustment points and other directional visuals

The Lean Visuals app works best in combination with Brady's BBP37 Multicolour & Cut Sign & Label Printer that includes an X/Y cutter to handle complex shapes.

Perfect patch panel labels

Brady Workstation Patch Panels

The Patch Panel app enables you to easily create a visual representation of any patch panel with precise dimensions. Distances between each port and between groups of ports can be customised and can be saved as a patch panel brand or type template for future use. With the Patch Panel app, you can design labels per group of ports or for several groups at once. Label data can easily be typed in or imported from existing databases before sending the labels to a Brady printer. The app also enables you to easily copy port label information to cable label designs.

Easily label terminal blocks

BWS Terminal block app

The Terminal Block labelling app in Brady Workstation offers a practical and flexible approach to terminal block labelling. Every block is visually represented in the app, and you can determine how many blocks you want to identify and what their size should be.

The app also enables you to insert insulating spacers, so your terminal block label can show your identification codes neatly underneath every block, without mistakes. And that's not all: you can reuse the identification data you entered on a cable label template with just a few clicks to show which terminal block the cable should be inserted in.

Don't retype, just scan and print your label

BWS app scan & print

With the Brady Workstation Scan and Print app, you can easily import data from a CSV-file by scanning a barcode. To set this up, you could:

  • open your spreadsheet or database that includes data needed on the labels
  • set up a workflow including how many labels are needed and select data to appear on the labels
  • create a CSV-file and a barcode from the CSV-file name
  • add the barcode to a work order
  • scan the barcode using the scan and print app to print the labels!

Additionally, with the Scan and Print app, barcoded labels can easily be replicated, new labels can be printed by scanning multiple barcodes, and parts of the scanned barcode can be replaced with other scanned data.

Easily design compliant British Standard pipemarkers

BS 1710 pipemarkers app

Fast and accurate asset tags

BWS - Asset Tag app

Quickly create accurate asset tags with the new Asset Tag app by importing existing data in your labels.

The new Brady Workstation Asset Tag app uses predefined layouts that can be populated with data from spreadsheets or databases. Importing data directly from Excel, Access or SQL database for example removes the risk of typos or mistakes during label creation. To fully benefit, you will need the new Asset Tag app, and the Advanced Import app from Brady Workstation. See our how to video!

Easily design complex serial code labels

BWS custom app

Easily print labels with complex serial codes generated from multiple database fields with Brady Workstation.

Both the Custom Designer and Advanced Import apps have been updated to make label designs with complex serial numbers or barcodes a lot easier. With the added 'Combined Fields' feature, both apps are now able to take data from multiple fields in a spreadsheet or database, and to bring those data together into one complex serial number, barcode or QR-code. See our how to video!

Quickly design CLP labels


The updated Brady Workstation GHS/CLP label app enables users to select chemicals by name or CAS-number. The app then automatically populates all required fields to create a compliant GHS/CLP label. Required fields include:

  • product name
  • signal word
  • CLP-pictograms
  • hazard statements
  • precautionary statements

Hitting 'print' can send the design to a Brady label printer in order to create a compliant, self-adhesive CLP-label that is ready to be applied.
