labels to be applied to the print before it is cut.

Button. Enable Lamination Mode.
1B. On a Mac, open the LX610Config Utility. Go to the Alignment tab (third tab), click Output/Cut. Check Lamination Mode.
2. Go to the XY
cutter tab. Increase cut pressure by 25 to account for the extra force needed
to cut through the lamination and the label.
3. Send your label and cut file to the LX610 as you usually
would. It is best to limit page size to correspond with the size of
the lamination label if possible.

5. At this point, the Printer will wait for you indefinitely
while you put a lamination label over the printed surface. (Purchase of
Lamination Labels is required) 6. When you are ready, press the pause or feed button to start the cutting

Tip 1 - Use a platform such as a monitor
positioned in front of the Printer to apply your lamination labels. The

to dispense the clear labels to speed up operations.
Tip 3 - Small bubbles in lamination disappear within 24 hours as the
Tip 4 – Print a box around your label to guide lamination label
application. (4x3, 3x2, or 4.25x6) The box will be not be seen since you will
strip the waste matrix away, but it will help you determine where the lamination
label should be applied.
Not Cutting Deep Enough? If additional cutting pressure is required to cut through the lamination and label you can use this tip. As the cutting knife dulls it may be necessary to increase pressure beyond the maximum. Instead of installing a new blade, you can try raising the position of the knife just slightly, this will force the solenoid to extend longer therefore increasing pressure. Just raise up the cutting knife no more than 1mm and lock it back in place. (If you raise it more than 1mm it may not cut at all).
