As the 4” alternative to the IJ384E ACS, the high resolution IJ768E ACS Impulse Jet Printhead offers the ability to future proof your case coding operation by providing a larger print area for more complex print messages. The IJ768E ACS 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 usability. 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 IJ768E ACS prints high resolution barcodes, logos and text on corrugated cases, gypsum and wood.


  • Multiple printhead configurations allow you to combine up to two IJ768E ACS 4” 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 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
