Scales and scanners 

Having the right truck scanners, wheel loaders, and rail scanners in your control is the key to success. Our team at Walz Scale is committed to ensuring every industry that can benefit from our products has access to exactly what's needed. A few of our products are ideal for clients working in the transportation industry, whether it be in terms of ticketing or in moving individual products. Aside from providing truck scanners to companies who depend on the reliability and accurate data of their loads, Walz Scale also provides similar products to railroad companies.

No matter what aspect of transportation your staff and vehicles specialize in, you can rely on the superiority of our independent scale sales and service organization.

Automated Kiosks for Ticketing & Tracking

When it comes to managing your company’s transformation and individual vehicles, having the right automated machines is of the utmost importance. Walz Scale is proud to provide high-quality kiosks alongside our truck scanners and wheel loaders for clients who rely heavily on moving products from one area to another. Keep track of your company's entire fleet with our two featured ticketing machines:

  • The KP100 Automated Ticketing Kiosk: When your business is focused entirely on transportation, it’s important to know where each member of your staff is and what product is being moved. In addition to our truck scanners, Walz Scale offers the KP100 Automated Ticketing Kiosk to make tracking your vehicles easy. This machine is excellent for improving your overall speed and accuracy, with a waterproof exterior and accessories like traffic lights and remote displays. Ensure each vehicle in your fleet is never slowed down with this automatic kiosk.
  • The K100 Weigh Out Kiosk: Walz Scale also offers the K100 Weigh Out Kiosk for clients in the transportation industry who would benefit from easily tracking their fleet vehicles. This product from Walz Scale features built-in ticket printers with a large roll capacity and a steel exterior for continuous outdoor use. Also boasting traffic light control, this kiosk is a key option for tracking everything related to your company’s transportation data.

Walz Scale Rail Scanner Options 

A key area of modern-day commercial transportation is the railroad, especially for companies that specialize in agriculture. Slightly different from traditional companies who can benefit from truck scanners with fast, accurate results, our clients who rely on the railroad can make excellent use of our rail scanners. Walz Scale’s railway operation resources are ideal for keeping track of data in real-time as the train is in motion.

Our rail scanners allow a company’s operators and employees to better understand the amounts of products that are passing through their hands. Available both as a large-scale option and as a portable truck scale option (for the railroad industry), Walz Scale solutions can be purchased, rented for short-term use, and are individually tailored to your company's needs. Our rail scanners and other railcar weighing solutions include all of the following products:

Available in multiple sizes to fit all your data-collecting and management needs, each of our rail scanners can be installed easily, gather data in motion, and can even have cloud-based reporting. Our independent scale sales and service organization provides world-class equipment to make your company as efficient as possible!
