Developed by TigerStop, Backboard Optimization streamlines roughly 80% of the chop process and has a number of other benefits, including the elimination of the time it takes to set up, optimize the material yield and track processed/cut parts. Here's how it works: The sawyer downloads the cutlist into his TigerStop, which tells him what material to grab and how many feet of cuts are in the job. Stock is then placed on the infeed and a trim cut is made. The stock length is entered into the TigerStop, and the software looks at the cutlist requirements and calculates the best possible yield for the available clear stock.
