What is a TigerStop?
It’s a pusher and a stop. TigerStop is a replacement for your manual stop system on almost any machine that is currently equipped with a manual positioning stop or needs a stop system.
TigerStop’s 6 Basic Functions
- GO-Enter any length on the keypad in inches, inches and fractions, decimal inches, even feet, or metric increments, and press START. TigerStop instantly moves to that position.
- GO SET – Turn TigerStop’s number keys (1 to 99) into hot keys to access custom lengths that you cut frequently.
- INCREMENT – Hit the INCREMENT key and enter a value (+ or -) to move the stop relative to the current position. Continue incremental movement by hitting START. The stop will move by the value you entered.
- PUSH FEED – TigerStop can be used as a push feeding system. It allows for saw kerf, and deliver finished lengths on the outboard side of your saw or machine tool.
- SET POINT – Use TigerStop as a set point stop system and enter up to 2000+ lengths into its powerful memory.
- CALCULATE – With TigerStop’s built-in 10 key calculator, you can calculate a new length based on your last position or on a new value. After doing the calculation, TigerStop moves to the new position.
