Software Upgrade for Improved Material Yield



TigerStop offers a software upgrade for TigerTouch called Dynamic Pack Optimization, that nests packs or bundles of material for the greatest yield. Dynamic Pack Optimization enhances raw material usage and reduces scrap waste.

TigerStop's Dynamic Pack Optimization is designed to optimize entire packs or bundles of like-profiled material, rather than single pieces. "It does so quickly and accurately while tracking material usage statistics data," said a company spokesperson.

"Dynamic Pack Optimization allows operators to achieve maximum productivity. It quickly calculates the greatest number of profiles an operator can load while achieving the best yield and preventing over-cutting of expensive raw stock," explained Mike Anderson, TigerStop's Saw Systems Manager.

Dynamic Pack Optimization can be used while processing metal, wood, composites and plastics in the following industries: furniture, cabinetry, flooring, packaging, pallet manufacturing, fenestration, curtainwall and storefront, automotive, aerospace, mechanical/electrical/plumbing and more.

Using TigerStop's patented TigerTouch tablet software coupled with the Dynamic Pack Optimization software upgrade, the operator simply enters the stock profile he would like to cut or process. The operator then enters the maximum number of like-profiles his saw envelope or machine tool can process at one time. Using its proprietary algorithm, the Dynamic Pack Optimization software tells the operator how many pieces of stock to bundle together in the pack, resulting in the best yield and productivity while preventing over-cutting.
