Fast-Weigh Desktop Ticketing Application
Scale House Necessities
There are a few must-haves for using the Fast-Weigh Application in your scale house. Check out our Hardware & Setup Checklist for a quick overview of everything you will need.
What computer specifications are best?
What kind of printer and paper do I need to print tickets?
- Fast-Weigh does not support dot matrix printing.
Fast-Weigh can print to any Windows 10 (or newer) compatible printer.
- Just about every customer we have uses a different printer model, but we recommend the professional laser printer lines by HP and Canon, as they tend to be well-supported and reliable.
Multi-part perforated tickets are the industry norm. This allows you to have copies of each ticket for as many parties as you choose, including the back office, scale house, trucker, customer, etc.
- Two things to watch out for are the print speed and supported paper types. If you choose to go with a thicker-stock ticket, you'll want to be sure you purchase a printer that will support it.
