Vancouver, WA (PRWEB) April 19, 2011
TigerStop, the global leader in stop/gauge and pusher systems, shipped and installed its first TigerRack, a new automated positioning system that is the industry’s only future-ready rack and pinion product with work order downloading and optimization software capabilities. The TigerRack attaches to a cold saw, punch press, ironworker, or any machine needing linear positioning automation and is the latest product added to TigerStop’s new Built Metal Tough™ line of products designed specifically for durability requirements of metalworking shops. The TigerRack can be used as an automatic pusher or as a material stop and maintains its speed and accuracy providing significant productivity gains. It is built to withstand rugged metalworking environments, is easy to use and offers the ability to download parts from design software, optimize a parts list, and operate via touch screen control.
“The team at Angus-Palm is very excited to install and use the new TigerRack and streamline their work flow process,” said Mike Albrecht of Scotchman Industries. “Angus-Palm has been looking for a durable rack and pinion automation system that could withstand their environment and help them increase productivity with reduced set up time and change over – and TigerStop’s TigerRack with pneumatic brakes was the best solution for them.”
TigerRack offers a rack and pinion solution for reducing set up time, increasing accuracy and productivity, simplifying every process, and it is affordable for metalworking shops. TigerStop’s Built Metal Tough line includes systems for nearly every application from structural steel to ornamental metals, even tube and pipe bending. Each product in this line is customized to accommodate a variety of metalworking applications while offering the customer a system they can afford.
“TigerRack was demonstrated at FabTech 2010 and it received overwhelming support and interest,” said Matt Harris, chief marketing officer, TigerStop. “As the leader in linear positioning systems and stop/gauge pusher systems it is our responsibility to respond to market needs and develop robust products that bring significant value to all of our customers’ applications.”
TigerStop products are easy enough for machine operators to learn in about 15 minutes - offering immediate savings for factories and shops. The available productivity packages for the TigerRack and all TigerStop Built Metal Tough products include optimization with nested work order lists ensuring the most cost effective use of valuable raw materials. Additionally, TigerStop lets shops go paperless by downloading work orders from standard design software directly to the TigerRack on the shop floor in minutes.
