Customizable Automatic Infeed Station for Saw Systems

TigerStop's AutoLoader, an automatic infeed station for the TigerSaw 2000 fully automated cross-cutting saw systems, is now compatible with TigerStop automated material pushers and positioners, as well as TigerTurbo high speed automated pushers for material weighing up to 840 lbs. New and existing TigerStops and TigerTurbos on flat, non-tilted tables can be upgraded to include automatic infeed stations.

Using the AutoLoader, an operator can load five pieces of stock at a time, reducing manual material handling time and increasing operator capacity for performing value-added tasks, such as offloading and sorting finished parts. For additional efficiency, a TigerStop printer can be paired with the AutoLoader so cut parts can be label-printed, facilitating fast, accurate and easy part sorting.

The AutoLoader can accommodate material from 4' to 30' in length and can be configured with up to seven stations with section lengths in either 3' or 6' intervals. "The AutoLoader is a powerful labor efficiency tool," stated Rakesh Sridharan, TigerStop CEO. "It will allow TigerStops, TigerTurbos and TigerSaws to run at maximum capacity with a single operator, providing significant savings on labor costs."

AutoLoader features:

  • Robust loading station capacity: Each loading station has five dogs designed to move material forward with a pushing capacity of up to 100 lbs. per set of dogs.
  • Flexible material length capacities: Will accommodate material ranging from 4' to 30'.
  • Custom loading station, configurable: Customize the number of Automatic Infeed Stations based on the length of the material needed to process. Integrate anywhere from two to seven stations in 3' or 6' increments.
  • Sensors: Allow loading station to recognize when material is pressed against the back fence, signaling that the material is ready to be processed through the saw and to continue feeding material until more is needed or the cut list is complete.
  • Safety: Switch and kill line runs the entire length of the infeed station.
  • Add-on: The AutoLoader can be added to TigerStops, TigerTurbos, TigerSaw 1000 and TigerSaw 2000 fully automated saw systems.
  • Materials: The AutoLoader is a suitable solution for processing varying materials whether wood, metal, plastic or composites.
