TigerStop should be a mainstay of
every shop. This precision measuring device can be quickly adapted
to work in conjunction with most other machinery used in the wood,
plastics and non-ferrous metals industries. From chop saws, to
boring machines, to table saws, TigerStop is the perfect compliment
to most applications. Everyone will notice the savings in time,
effort, energy and waste. TigerStop's modular component design
allows you to pick and choose to fit your exact needs. By eliminating
errors, you will quickly see the benefits of your increased production.
Communication "Level Two" allows TigerStop to
be connected to a PLC or computer via an RS232 serial link
and controled by custom programming. Your program not only
can control the TigerStop, but it can also read and write two
I/O's! This allows additional control for machine cycles, pneumatic
clamps, sensors. A world of simple automation solutions in
one performance-balanced package!
Download Software provides the necessary interface between
TigerStop and your computer to allow the downloading of cut
list data for use with TigerOptimizer and the Label Printer.
"Level Three" provides an easy solution for defect
optimizing. Use any grade of lumber and cost-effectively optimize
it. Your machine operator will produce more with less labor
and raw material than ever before.
and Label Printer "Level Four" adds the extra
benefit of immediate label output for your cut parts. Print
all the data you need to see about each part on thermal self-adhesive
labels for further milling or sorting.
There are a few points to be made that apply to all TigerStop setups
and should be considered when placing an order.
|| TigerStop length
is the range of movement, not the overall net length of the
fence, which is 24" longer. When planning your workstation,
be sure to allow for this additional length. For Example: TigerStop06
has a range of 6 feet (72") and an overall net length
ambidextrous -- It can be used on the right or the left side
of your saw or other equipment. TigerStop, as it comes in the
box, is set up as a LEFT handed machine. To use it as a RIGHT
handed machine, simply flip it over. Full details on installation
and setup are provided in the TigerStop Manual.
be mounted to TigerStop tables or your existing tables. TigerStop
tables are designed for ease of installation. Mount TigerStop
directly to the table top without brackets. When using your
existing table, mount TigerStop either to the top or to the
back edge. For back edge mounting, use TigerStop attachment
brackets. Quantity of brackets depends on the overall length.
Tables: The terms "infeed" and "outfeed"
have to do with direction of material flow. When TigerStop
is used as a set point stop, the side it is mounted on is called
"outfeed" because the finished pieces come out between
the saw blade and the flipaway stop. When TigerStop is used
as a push feeder, the side it is mounted on is called "infeed"
because the material is loaded there, and the finished pieces
come out on the other side of the saw or other processing machine.
Keep this in mind in the setups that follow, when "infeed"
and "outfeed" tables are described.
Feed Tables to Other Equipment. Our feed tables are designed
to be supported by a freestanding machine at one end. It is
necessary to drill and tap holes in most equipment to attach
the feed tables. Many upcut saws have a 45-degree bevel on
the outfeed/infeed side. We recommend that you cope the tables
into the beveled area so that small pieces of wood do not jamb
during operation. Though this takes a bit more time, it will
prove worth the effort in the long run. (This is not necessary
if you are using a flat-top Whirlwind saw.) TigerStop may in
some circumstances interfere with the saw guard, which must
be modified to accommodate this. In some situations an extra
leg set must be used to support the table instead of bolting
it to the machine. It is the installer's responsibility to
meet all safety requirements and correct any inherently dangerous
situations to meet not only the letter of the law but common

is possible with TigerStop when equipped with its higher-level
TigerStop has features everyone can use. This precision measuring device
can give you repeatable accuracy up to +/- .004 in. With cut
ranges from 3' to 30' TigerStop can be used as a set point
optimizer or as a push feeder. TigerStop can increase your
productivity so effectively, everyone will notice. There are
other features available that can be added to the basic package.

This positioner can be mounted to
a wide variety of table and panel saws. Attached at two strategic
points on your saw, the operator needs to only push the large
buttons on the keypad and make his cuts. No more walking
around the fence to make adjustments. A simple keystroke
and your fence has moved and (that quickly) is now ready
for another cut. This unit operates with the accuracy of
all TigerStops of plus/minus .004 inches with a lead screw
drive and DC servo motor. Simple to install and straightforward
to use, it will pay for itself in a very short time.
The TigerOptimizer is a powerful
software upgrade for your TigerStop. Install with little
if any down time in your production, and start optimizing
your cultists right away. TigerOptimizer generates the best
fit optimizing at 15,000 equivalent solutions per second
to maximize your output and minimize the material wasted
during the normal cutting process. Let TigerStop choose from
your programmed cutlist files for the best possible yield.
This affordable software takes the guesswork out of set point
defecting quickly and easily.
TigerStop Heavy Duty
TigerStop, the precision measuring
device, has expanded the horizon of possible cut ranges with
the introduction of the Heavy Duty. Between your standard
and HD TigerStop you can process material efficiently from
3' to 150' and hold the same tolerances of plus/minus .004
of an inch. The rack and pinion drive in this unit gives
the HD the ability to move material weighing upwards of 500lbs.
Whether used in wood, metal or plastics applications, these
hefty models have the same familiarity and reliable features
of the basic TigerStop.
