SOLUTIONS FOR THE WINDOW, DOOR, AND CURTAINWALL INDUSTRIES
If you're a window and door manufacturer, the two biggest costs in your business are labor and materials. If you can increase productivity and reduce non-value add labor while maximizing the yield from your materials, your bottom line will thank you. The following TigerStop systems and software solutions will provide your fenestration business with a competitive advantage whether you are processing aluminum, vinyl, wood, plastic, or composite.
TIGERSTOP HAS SOLUTIONS FOR ALL OF YOUR APPLICATIONS WHETHER YOU PUNCH, DRILL, OR CUT MATERIAL
SawGear® is a simple and intuitive automated stop. No more using a tape measure or setting manual stops, which means you can produce more parts with increased accuracy. Attach SawGear to your chop saw, cold saw, double miter saw, drill, and more, for added accuracy and repeatability. SawGear can store cut lists, convert between fractions and decimals and is easy to use.
TigerStop® is an automated material pusher and positioner that will turn your existing machine into a lean manufacturing asset. TigerStop is great for any cutoff, drilling, and pneumatic punching machine operations in your window and door shop. Any TigerStop can be upgraded with TigerTouch, touch screen software, for visibility and control at your fingertips. With TigerTouch you can view multiple jobs being processed and see what bins finished parts will go into. Additional upgrades include Dynamic Optimization software for increased yield and reduced scrap waste, Cut List Downloading software, barcode scanning, and label printing for easier sorting of finished parts. Add on an Advanced Interconnect Kit for a fully automated set up.

TigerSaw 2000 will scan the length of the material and automatically push it through the saw. It comes with best in class Dynamic Optimization software that will cut the parts you need while achieving the maximum possible yield.

FENESTRATION CUSTOMER STORIES
ELIMINATED LABOR TIME & SETUP TIME
“With the old stop block and a ruler, I’d have to come in an hour or two early to cut a job ahead of time. TigerStop linear positioners totally changed the game. Using a TigerStop cuts the time in half, maybe a little more than that, and makes it so much easier. We had two TigerStops here when I started and now we have seven. I can’t imagine not having them.” Watch the video and learn more here.
SIW WINDOWS & DOORS
ELIMINATED WASTE & BOOSTED PRODUCTIVITY
“We eliminated waste in our production line. It’s obviously why we have so many TigerStops today. We use TigerStops throughout our entire manufacturing process to cut extrusions, we use it for glass tops, and for our punches that have to be very accurate. Every corner we can put a TigerStop, we will put a TigerStop. That’s how efficient we find them to be.” Watch the video and learn more here.
