More often today you are finding features on smaller edge banders that initially were exclusive to larger, higher production machines. One of those features is pre-milling. Pre-milling consists of two counter-rotating cutterheads which are designed to mill the edge of the panel prior to applying the edge banding material.
Founded in 1994 by Spencer and Mary Dick, TigerStop is a global leader in automated stop/gauge and pusher systems. As an owner of a manufacturing business, Spencer noticed the inefficiency and inaccuracy of manually measuring parts and calibrating machinery while cutting and processing material to desired lengths. Unable to find an existing solution in the marketplace, Spencer founded TigerStop to help other manufacturers automate this process. Today, TigerStop is an international company headquartered in Washington State with distribution across six continents, and tens of thousands of TigerStops installed worldwide.
