The high resolution IJ384E ACS Impulse Jet Printhead features individual health-check functions such as an Automatic Cleaning System, Digital LED Level and Channel Check button built directly into the printhead to optimize floor operator useability. The enhanced design includes reinforced roller retractors that serve double duty to protect the printhead and assure quality prints regardless of irregularities in gaps between the printhead and the substrate. The IJ384E ACS prints high resolution barcodes, logos and text on corrugated cases, gypsum and wood in a print area up to 2” tall and accommodates industry-leading throw distances of ¼” for machine readable barcodes and ½” throw distances for alphanumerics.


  • Multiple printhead configurations allow you to combine up to four IJ384E ACS 2” printheads or one IJ384E ACS 2” with a IJ728 4” printhead.
  • Enhanced printhead design delivers sharper, high-resolution barcodes, logos, graphics, alphanumerics, nutritional fact panels, ingredient statements and more for superior legibility and 35% improved scanner recognition compared to competitors
  • Heavy-duty repairable printheads feature an industrial, all stainless steel design utilizing Trident-based technology for maximum uptime, reliability and longevity.
  • Automatic Cleaning System keeps dust, glue and debris from getting inside the printhead nozzles, maintaining excellent print quality
  • Reinforced roller retractors combined with enhanced ink throw distances assure quality prints regardless of irregularities in gaps between the printhead and substrate
  • Digital LED Level built directly into the printhead allows for optimal front to back alignment to assure printhead is “square” with printed substrate
  • Channel Check feature allows all 256 printhead channels to be quickly checked by a simple push of a button built directly into the printhead – ideal for installations with the controller in a remote location
  • Optional feature: Integrate the SICK Lector 631 barcode scanner into your material handling process for easy code verification
