Feed Deck

. The LX-570 is designed for 

use with items up to five inches wide. It 
works best with item thicknesses 
between 20 pound bond paper and 100 
pound card stock or construction paper 
(min. thickness is 0.004 inches, max. 
thickness is 0.010 inches).

The LX-570 applies an adhesive, laminate, or 
magnetic backing to an item without using heat or 
electricity. You choose a backing by swapping the 
drop-in cartridge. 

The LX-570 comes with a starter cartridge already 
installed. This cartridge applies a permanent 
adhesive backing and is shorter than replacement 

See the reverse for available cartridges and for 
application ideas on using your LX-570. First, take a 
few minutes to read these instructions.

or must be run across the 
backing material several times.

The item does not feed properly.

When using the laminate

Clean the cutter and area (see 
below). Or replace the cutter.

Be sure that the cartridge is  
properly installed.

Be sure the top cover is closed.

film until there are no visible 
bubbles. Or replace the

Exit area

Guide the backing 
material under the cutter 
bar into the exit area.

Notes: When placing a partially-used 
cartridge back in the machine, be sure 
the material does not adhere to the 
cartridge itself.

When removing a used cartridge 
whose material has wrapped around 
the rollers, remove the cartridge and 
pull the material from the rollers.

When Using the 
Starter Cartridge...

Feed and cut the item as described here. Be 
sure to feed face up.  

Press down firmly around all the edges. This 
action prevents adhesive from remaining on 
the front of the item. Then remove the clear 
film and discard carefully as it is sticky. 

When you are ready to place the item on a 
surface, peel it from the white backing.

This starter cartridge contains five feet of 
backing material. After you use it a few times, 
always make certain that it contains sufficient 
material. If uncertain, install a new cartridge 
to avoid partial processing.

Note: the starter cartridge is shorter than the 
replacement cartridges. See the other side 
for cartridge descriptions and lengths. Always 
consult packaging of replacement cartridges.

 Warnings & Cautions

 Maintaining the LX-570
















About the LX-570 

To maintain your LX-570, clean the cutter, exit area, and rollers. It is a 
good idea to clean whenever you remove and replace a cartridge.

To clean the cutter area:

Open the top cover and remove the 
cartridge. Moisten a soft cloth or cotton 
swab with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol to 
remove dust, adhesive, or debris from 
the rollers.

Moisten the end of a cotton swab in 
isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. Use the 
moistened end to remove dust, adhesive, or 
debris from the cutter blade, groove, and 
exit area. 

Always be careful to avoid touching the 

There are two rollers.

Feed straight, not at an angle. 
Turn the knob forward only.

To clean the rollers:

When installed properly, the cutter slides 

back and forth on the cutter bar.




All backing materials are permanent once applied and cannot be 
removed without damage. Do not use on single-source items.

Once you start feeding an item, do not try to back it out by 
turning the knob in the opposite direction.

Always feed items straight, not at an angle.

Before processing an item, make certain that the cartridge contains 
sufficient backing material. If uncertain, install a new replacement 
cartridge to avoid partial processing.

When using the magnetic cartridge, do not place close to computer 
diskettes or other sensitive materials.

Avoid exposure to excessive heat or moisture or dusty 
environments. Do not place foreign objects inside or heavy objects 
on top of the unit.

When discarding any portion of this product, check with local solid-
waste officials for recycling options or proper disposal methods.

For best results, be sure that all items are clean and free of debris 
before inserting in the LX-570.

The LX-570 is not designed for use with thermal paper.

Do not disassemble, or the warranty will be void. Use only Brother 
parts and accessories.

The cartridge is properly installed when 

the label is flush with the feed deck. 

Close the top cover before using.


Before using, remove the protective tape 
and other packaging materials under the
