PrintoLUX® labelling software

Our software: comprehensive, efficient and easy to use.
This allows you to control all PrintoLUX® labelling systems.

PrintoLUX® software offer

PrintoLUX uses a commercially available option for its software range, as this allows a significantly higher degree of customer benefit to be realized. For this we use the standardised and market-leading BarTender®-Professional software in an extended form. Specific requirements of the marking print are included.

The software also follows the PrintoLUX motto: "Small effort  big benefit". 

Sign formats

BarTender®-Professional-PLX-Edition has a complete list of all sign formats required for the production of industrial markings.


You can mark multilingual and use Unicode to use the complete character sets of all world languages.

2D codes

You can effortlessly create 2D codes (DataMatrix codes as effortless as QR codes).

Print templates

All user-defined print templates are easy to create.


In order to be able to offer the best possible software for label printing, we have selected the standardised and successful standard label software BarTender®-Professional* as the basis for further development. This further development convinces as the "BarTender®-Professional PLX-Edition" through its easy handling, with which a multitude of format, content and design options can be seamlessly implemented. 
With this software you can: 
  • easily create user-defined print templates
  • make a database connection of graphics
  • Create 1D and 2D barcodes (barcodes, DataMatrix codes, QR codes)
  • multilingual printing and use the complete character sets of all world languages via Unicode
BarTender® Professional PLX Edition is a software edited for PrintoLUX® users, which allows free and individual labelling design. The easy to use software works with database connection. We have extended it to include all application options of PrintoLUX® label printing. At the same time, it remains so easy to use that even inexperienced users can quickly get to grips with it.

The BarTender® Professional PLX Edition is license-bound. With the basic license (software), any number of users can use the software simultaneously. The number of printers that can be controlled varies depending on the available printer license. 

BarTender® is a registered trademark of Seagull Scientific, Inc. 


We leave this approach to others

Many label/sign manufacturers have developed their own software variants with the aim to ultimately use them as a questionable tool to create artficial customer loyalty. It’s an all too common process: once you have opted for a certain software suite – regardless of the department – you are at the mercy of the manufacturer in most cases.

Software updates, re-training and complex handling that only becomes manageable as part of day-to-day operation generate costs and more work in house without being able to assess the extent when you make the decision. 

There is another way

But then there is PrintoLUX. Opting for our software range will not make you dependent, it will give you specific benefits.

We should say that all PrintoLUX® printing systems can also be actuated and operated using other Windows-based programs. Consequently, if you prefer using a program of your choice, we recommend you contact us to clarify to which extent this is possible or whether we would recommend this. If this is something you require more information about, talk to our advisers!


This additional control unit can be used in conjunction with BarTender®-Professional-PLX-Edition to achieve a high level of benefit in mail merge printing. It allows the simultaneous printing of four sheets of labels and thus speeds up the mail merge considerably. Users benefit from this especially in mail merge printing.
With this extension tool of our standard software, the PrintoLUX®- FB-10/400 and PrintoLUX®-FB-140/3000-plus systems can print four sheets inserted in the systems simultaneously. With the PrintoLUX®-FB-20/400-STONE system, two inserted sheets can be printed simultaneously with the PrintoLUX®-Quattro software.
Further advantages
  • PrintoLUX® sheets are predefined (selection via format or article number) and do not have to be set up.
  • Layout changes (font size, colour, alignment) can be easily made thanks to the BarTender® software.
  • The integration of databases (e.g. Excel tables) is possible without any problems.
  • Each PrintoLUX® sheet can be additionally marked parallel to the printing of the license plates (e.g. with information on the place of installation).
  • The software can be used for all common operating systems: Windows 2000, XP, 7, 8, Vista™, MacOSX.
  • The software is also available for earlier PrintoLUX® systems, which have now been replaced by newer models.
