BC Greenhouse Builders Ltd.’s Testimonial on the TigerStop SawGear that they recently purchased from Akhurst Machinery
Our first SawGear installation and use has been so succesful that we are poised to purchase our second unit. This will aid us in achieving our goals of continous improvement, a top quality product, and increased profitability.
We first heard about the SawGear by TigerStop when our Akhurst Machinery sales representative dropped by our manufacturing facility last August to tell us about the product and its opportunities.
We are a custom greenhouse manufacturer and have been building greenhouses since 1951. Our versatile product requires many cut to length operations, utilizing various chop and radial arm saws combined with manual measure & mark techniques – a good fit for a SawGear solution.
After a demonstration model loan from Akhurst Machinery and a quick cost/benefit analysis, we opted to purchase and install a 12’ version at our busiest saw. As it turns out, the newest piece of technology in the plant is working in conjunction with the oldest – a mid-century Dewalt radial arm saw. This is now a key talking point during plant tours.
The unit has proven easy to install, simple to train operators on, and easy to use on a daily basis. SawGear has eliminated the ‘measure – mark – check measurement’ routine that occurred for every cut prior to its use. The time savings result in approximately thirty minutes per day which allows for increased output. In addition, the unit also reduces the potential for errors made from inaccurate markings or tape measure readings and so contributes to a better fitting, top quality product for our clients.
Our first SawGear installation and use has been so successful that we are poised to purchase our second unit. This will aid us in achieving our goals of continous improvement, a top quality product, and increased profitability.
Thank you TigerStop,
