Why you need a HeavyDuty 2
HeavyDuty 2, big brother to the TigerStop and TigerTurbo, offers higher maximum load capacity vs. other TigerStop products, 2100 lbs (952 Kg). When you’re processing material this heavy, setting and resetting manual stops on your bandsaw, drill, or other machine tool can be a real pain. Even with the best operator, you will still get miscut parts requiring costly rework. HeavyDuty 2 can solve those problems by automating your existing machinery.
Having an automated positioner means that material handing is quick and easy. Simplifying material handling can boost overall station productivity, so you can process more material in a day.
HeavyDuty 2 positions material to +/- .008 (.2mm), giving you perfectly cut parts…every time. Costly rework will be a thing of the past.
Easy to Operate
The HeavyDuty 2 interface is easy to use and an operator can be trained in as little as ten minutes. Once trained, station setup time goes to zero. HD2 can be retrofitted to any existing saw station, bandsaw, drill, punch or any other machine that could use a huge jump in efficiency and accuracy.
Easy to Upgrade
Start simple and build your TigerStop system as you grow. Add label printing, Dynamic Optimizing, Downloading cut bills and much more. You can even add a touch screen interface, TigerTouch, for a new level of visibility and productivity. Get just what you need now and then let TigerStop grow with you.

This is the big boy
HeavyDuty 2 was designed and built from the ground up to push, pull or position heavy weight material that no other automated positioning system can handle.
Rack and Pinion
HeavyDuty 2 uses a rack and pinion drive that provides a repeatable accuracy of +/- .008 inches (.2 mm) to any material you need to position, up to 2100 lbs (952 Kg).
AC Servo Drive
HeavyDuty 2 is equipped with a powerful AC Servo Drive motor that provides speed when pushing light material and provides superior pushing force when pushing heavy material.
Robust Internal Construction
The robust design of the HeavyDuty 2’s linear way system supports the carriage and the over-sized rack and pinion gear, ensuring accuracy and durability.

Material Handing Made Easy
Think that hand loading and positioning is the only way to work with the big stuff? Think again. TigerStop knows that accuracy is most important when you’re building big. HeavyDuty 2 gives you +/-.008 inch (.2 mm) repeatable accuracy and does it quickly…every time.
When increasing production, you can add more stations or you can increase the throughput of your existing stations. That is what TigerStop is all about. With a HeavyDuty 2 attached to your existing workstation, you can increase your station throughput by 300%. With HeavyDuty 2’s 2100 lbs (952 Kg) of pushing power, you can also stack up material and process it as a pack for added throughput benefits.
Easy to Automate
With TigerStop’s powerful automation platform, you can quickly and simply automate your existing equipment. You decide how far you want to take it. Manual, Semi-automatic or fully automated processing, TigerStop can do it all. You can even interface TigerStop products to your own custom application using our Software Developer’s Kit (SDK).
Easy to Learn
Not everybody can read a tape the way you can. TigerStop’s simple and intuitive controls can allow even a novice to cut like a pro in just a matter of hours.
