TigerStop founder passes
TigerStop announced founder Spencer Dick passed away in June. Dick made an indelible mark on manufacturing and automation with his brilliant inventions. He had accumulated more than 100 patents for ideas in manufacturing, automation and lineal positioning processes. In 1994, Dick invented a machine for automated lineal processing that could be adapted to nearly any tool and position material accurately for cutting, drilling and punching. Today, TigerStop is a leader in automated stop gauge positioners and fully automated sawing systems, with factories in Vancouver, Wash., and The Netherlands.
