On the cutting edge. You’ll find our products hard at work in manufacturing facilities around the globe. To date we’ve sold over 40,000 TigerStop stop/gauge and pusher systems and the list keeps on growing.

We have our own manufacturing facilities in United States and Europe, sales partners around the world and technical support at your fingertips. We were there the moment “measure twice, cut once” became a thing of the past and we continue to maintain the same aggressive research and development effort that started it all. We now have over 100 patents, awarded or pending, to our name. We know what it takes to be fast, accurate, and reliable – and how to maintain a cutting edge.

About TigerStop

TigerStop products help optimize and improve the accuracy of all lineal processes. Add-on products easily and affordably integrate with existing equipment, while TigerStop’s fully integrated systems provide a turn-key material processing and positioning solution.

TigerStop was founded in 1994 by Spencer Dick, who, as the owner of a thriving manufacturing business, became frustrated with the inherent inefficiencies of his machine operators stopping to reset and recalibrate whenever they were cutting or processing material to various lengths. Spencer also noticed that regardless of how carefully material was measured, the end results were always of slightly different dimensions. He founded TigerStop to automate cutting, boring, punching, and machining processes so that fast and accurate parts, whether wood, metal, or plastic, would result each and every time.

TigerStop has since become a global leader in automated stop/gauge and pusher systems under the TigerStop and SawGear brand names. Headquartered in Washington State, TigerStop is a U.S. manufacturer with a second manufacturing and distribution facility in Wierden, Netherlands, a distribution network spanning six continents, and product support in five languages.
