On the cutting edge. You’ll find our products hard at work in manufacturing facilities around the globe. To date we’ve sold over 30,000 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.

Heavy-duty, Precision System, Automates Push Feed and Optimizes Cutting 

 TigerStop has just announced that it will unveil TigerSaw Ferrous, a fully automated, heavy-duty, precision ferrous metal cut off saw and push feed system at the upcoming FABTECH show. TigerSaw Ferrous features a robust column saw with mitering capabilities from 60° left to 45° right and TigerStop’s highly regarded in-feed pusher system along with fully integrated and automated material handling options. The system is designed to cut tube, pipe and bar stock up to 42 FT in length all while incorporating Dynamic OptimizationTM. TigerSaw Ferrous sets a new standard in performance to value as machinery with similar features and specifications generally cost-out at over two times as much.
 
 
TigerSaw Ferrous – Performance

  • Cut from 60° left to 45° right
  • Material up to 42’ (12.8 meters) in length
  • Pneumatic vertical material vice for positioning accuracy
  • Four speed blade rotation 15/30/45/90 rpm (optional 30/60/90/180 rpm)
  • Optional: fully integrated, pneumatic material loader and material off-load conveyor

 

“TigerSaw Ferrous combines efficiency and simplicity, all in a heavy duty system that will allow shops to fully automate – and truly optimize – their metal cut-off processes,” says Spencer Dick, TigerStop founder and president. “Shops that incorporate TigerSaw Ferrous will see a dramatic increase in manufacturing efficiency and a greater profit margin.”

TigerSaw Ferrous includes TigerStop’s easy-to-use, highly intuitive operating system with an ergonomically, side-mounted touch pad that is perfectly situated for an operator to import or program cut lists as well as perform one-off operations.

TigerSaw Ferrous also features Dynamic OptimizationTM, TigerStop’s proprietary nesting and optimizing program, a process by which random lengths of metal can be nested and optimized, on the fly, by the cut list of needed parts and the actual dimensions of the material placed on the system in-feed fence. TigerSaw Ferrous does this automatically which means that engineering staff no longer have to spend valuable time running nesting programs.

By automating and optimizing the cut-off process with the highly accurate, intuitive, easy-to-use TigerSaw Ferrous, manufacturers are able to reduce operator error, labor costs and materials costs while increasing cutting accuracy and greatly improving material yield.

Optional Features:
Shops who choose to add in the features below will experience the benefits of whole-system automation, providing an operator environment and process that consists of simply bringing up a cut list and pressing start.

  • Automated Material Loading: Fully integrated with TigerSaw Ferrous controls and completely automatic, the pneumatic material loading feature automatically loads tube, bar and pipe stock onto the machine and into a cutting queue.
  • Material Off-load Conveyor: The angled outfeed table causes parts to slide down and out of the way, conveniently stacking them on its unloading bars as they come out of the saw and onto the table.
  • Label Printing:  As TigerSaw Ferrous cuts, a label is printed for each part, making the operator’s job even easier and speeding up the flow of materials to the fabrication floor.

 

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 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 the cutting process so that exact and accurate parts would result each and every time.
