TigerStop has extensive experience handling work orders and cut list data. Using TigerStop’s Cut List Downloading Software, TigerLink 6, you can download cut lists or part lists from your network and send them to your TigerStops using Ethernet cables. You no longer have to use messy paper cut lists.
The “Style” option on TigerLink 6 allows you to choose how you want to process each list.
If you already have Cut List Downloading software (TigerLink 6) you can upgrade your TigerStop with TigerSet software.
The TigerSet software upgrade opens up a communication port on your TigerStop so you can use a PC, PLC, or barcode scanner for example, to control your TigerStop systems. With TigerSet you can bypass the controller and communicate directly with your TigerStop.
Dynamic Optimization™ software from TigerStop®, also known as linear nesting, is an instant and mathematically precise way of deciding what order to process parts to optimize material yield. The software determines the best use of material, so the operator (unskilled worker or pro fabricator) only has to focus on feeding parts and cutting.
Dynamic Optimization software calculates the best cutting order so you have the least amount of scrap waste. The software goes through every combination of every length and quantity of material in your cut list.
The operator then simply makes the cut and the stop moves to the next position. He doesn’t need to do any complicated math or cut in order of largest material to shortest.
Any TigerStop can be enhanced with cutting edge touch screen control with TigerTouch™. Using the TigerTouch touch screen controller, you can download an infinite number of cut lists, display three cut lists at a time for easy switching between work orders, and view statistics such as job status, remnants, remaining parts, and yield.
TigerTouch is also equipped with a feature called Cascading Cut Lists which runs lists sequentially, or in a cascading effect. Using the Cascading Cut List feature means the operator does not have to wait until a list is finished, choose the next list he wants to run, and press start. The operator can run successive lists, saving a tremendous amount of time. If material profiles change from one list to the next, Cascading Cut List software will notify the operator so he can feed the necessary material for the job.
TigerStop offers a wireless or wired barcode scanner. The barcode scanner can be used to move your TigerStop to a position and manage cut lists. You will need TigerSet and TigerLink 6 Cut List Downloading software and an I/O panel if you want to use your barcode scanner to download or create cut lists. The barcode scanner can be used to enter part lengths into a cut list instead of typing in the length data manually. With your barcode scanner, you can build cut lists and then optimize those cut lists using Dynamic Optimization software. Your barcode scanner can also print barcoded data when using the TigerStop Label Printing upgrade.
TigerStop offers label printing. The TigerStop printer will print part information for each part processed, making sorting finished parts much faster.
When used with TigerLink 6 Cut List Downloading software you can print labels with custom part information. You can also configure custom labels using TigerTouch touch screen software.
TigerStop printers can print 2 inch or 4 inch wide labels. Each printer is fitted with thermal labels so you will not need to replace ink or toner cartridges.
Thermal Transfer Printer
TigerStop offers Thermal Transfer Printing as well. Custom part list information can be printed onto finished pieces using special UV resistant ink, keeping labels from fading in sunlight over time.
Inkjet printing is available for TigerSaw 1000 and TigerSaw 2000. Custom part information can be printed directly onto finished pieces.
TigerStop’s Open Source Software Development Kit TigerSDK
TigerSet also allows you to download TigerStop’s free open source Software Development Kit (SDK) to create your own code. The SDK is a set of tools to help you develop your own software for the TigerStop hardware platform. If your company wants to use its TigerStop in a way that we don’t yet support, you can do so using our free code. The SDK includes an extensive library of TigerStop commands to make writing new software that much easier. Become part of an amazing development community by visiting: https://github.com/TigerStop.
In order for the code to interact with your TigerStop device, it needs to have version 5.60 or above firmware installed on it and be enabled with TigerSet. The SDK development team is readily available if you happen to have any questions: email@example.com
