TigerStop

October 2013 - Cutting angles, especially compound angles, is no one’s favorite job. Manufacturers using crosscut applications are manually setting stops and setting angles, checking and rechecking, miscutting and then doing it all over again. Down the drain goes time, materials and profits. TigerStop’s newest addition eliminates setup, eliminates test cuts and parts, and adds true dynamic optimization to the manufacturing process. Now manufacturers are saving time, material and space in the scrap box. Enjoy fast and accurate results with TigerStop, every time. 

TigerStop brings to market the TigerAngle. This revolutionary system delivers automated material length positioning and compound mitering. TigerAngle is equipped for any application where high volume horizontal and vertical angle cutting is required. Whether manufacturing windows and doors, aluminum sun screens and door frames or any other angle cutting operations within the metal industries – TigerAngle will speed production processes up to 75% depending on the application. 

Developed by TigerStop, the industry leader in automated stop/gauge and pusher systems, no aspect has been overlooked. Safety, material optimization, efficiency, productivity, improved yield and less waste have all been considered in the development of TigerAngle. No need to be afraid, TigerAngle uses all the same easy to use controls that you would find on all of TigerStop’s industrial products. 

TigerAngle is completely integrated by TigerStop and is equipped with the tried and true TigerStop automated length positioning system. This allows the TigerAngle to be used solely as a stop in a set point operation, or used as a push feed operation. Not only is the material positioning fully automated with a TigerStop, even the miter saw has been retrofitted with TigerStop drives for seamless and accurate automated miter adjustments. No need to hassle with manually adjusting the saw to the proper miter angles and setting stops on this machine.

Now, let us take a closer look at just what this machine is capable of doing: 

TigerStop’s Beamworks Software was developed specifically for TigerAngle, taking the headache out of compound miter cutting optimization. The operator can create or download cut lists directly to the computer, receive operator feedback with visual representations of materials and store repeat jobs. Beamworks is compatible with many other woodworking software programs, allowing for even more customization. Material optimization in today’s manufacturing environment doesn’t just make sense, it is essential to sustaining a profitable business. 

TigerStop is constantly striving to exceed safety expectations. With the newly developed and fully automated Safety Hood, manufacturers can rest assured their employees can get the job done quickly without the lingering concern of their safety. 

The Material Clamping System grips material to ensure manufacturers are getting the accuracy they expect from a TigerStop system. 

TigerStop has integrated their Extended Pusher Foot for reaching far into the hood to obtain even the smallest precision cuts and prevent operators from reaching into the machine. 

Visualize the cut prior to execution and ensure no mistakes will be made with the Laser Guide, showing exactly where the blade will be cutting.
