More Than A Shop Creates a Worry Free Shopping Center by Teaming Up with the Symantec Corporation and the iSafeSite Organization

Visit us and see why we’re more than just a shop

Kingston, NY (PRWEB) March 02, 2011

More Than A Shop has announced that they recently teamed up with iSafeSite and the Semantec Corporation to make online shopping a safer, more enjoyable and worry free experience. More Than A Shop is an online retailer which caries a wide selection of products including: computers, electronics, sporting goods, apparel and auto parts.

According to company officials, many perspective customers when they reach a new website, their first concern when they go to make a purchase is to worry about whether it is safe to do so. A common indicator of this is when perspective customers keep revisiting the same website over and over again but never make a purchase. The solution: Help them feel more comfortable visiting your site.

Company representatives felt it was their job to do something about it so that perspective customers did not have to guess if it was alright to shop. Company executives, therefore, decided to apply for and were accepted into the iSafeSite network.

The iSafeSite organization is a membership network of trusted and monitored websites that adhere to a strict set of privacy and safe shopping practices. To carry the certification seal, a website must have a clearly stated privacy policy, a return policy, a valid contact number, business address and this information must be easy to find. Websites carrying this certification seal are also checked for website security concerns. While the iSafeSite organization does not mediate disputes, it does reserves the right to revoke certification for unresolved disputes.

For potential customers it be comforting to know that they have come upon a safe and secure website but More Than A Shop has taken it a step further according to the company representatives. Even websites run by honest and legitimate online business owners can still prove dangerous to a customer’s computer and their wallet. The company’s vice president, therefore, decided to utilize Norton Safe Web which is a new reputation service offered by the Semantec Corporation. The result could be seen within a day with a 20% increase in sales.

The Symantec Corporation which is a leader in internet and computer security. Their servers analyze web sites to see how they will affect the computer of a perspective customer before they even visit the website. They then report this information via a toolbar installed in the browser of the perspective website visitor.    

Norton Safe Web also provides reviews from other customers and checks for computer viruses, adware, spyware and other dangers. Our potential customers can now check us out before even coming to our website so they can feel more confident about taking their time determining if we have the right products to serve their needs.

Company executives seemed particularly pleased to enroll in Semantic’s Norton Safe Web program. One executive is quoted as saying because it fits in so well with our corporate philosophy of making a shopping place more than just a place to buy goods and services. Want to know more? Visit us at

Laguna Tools Announces the New SmartShop 3 CNC Machining Center

Laguna Tools Announces the New SmartShop 3 CNC Machining Center

Irvine, California (PRWEB) August 15, 2014

Laguna Tools has recently announced the introduction of the NEW SmartShop 3 CNC Machining Center, developed to introduce an advanced technological platform for the next generation of Laguna CNC Machinery.

The machine features a new computer-designed frame that includes an all-welded structural steel base to ensure the accuracies and cut qualities that have remained key characteristics of the SmartShop CNC product line. Additionally, the new SmartShop’s structural steel gantry is internally reinforced, permitting the use of a variety of machining package options. Finally, a gantry-mounted carousel tool changer was added to reduce tool change times; an especially relevant feature on large table format machines.

The fluid movement of the Laguna SmartShop 3 CNC can be contributed to the precise machining of frame components, precision-ground contour guide rails in all axes, and top-notch “closed-loop” servos and drives by the innovative OSAI Open machine controller.

Movements on both X and Y axes are achieved with world-class helical rack-and-pinions driven by precision planetary drive systems. Z-axis motion is controlled by a precision-ground ball screw and the precision planetary drive system. Another benefit of using a planetary drive system is that it permits Laguna Engineering to mount the guide rails lower on the side of the base frames. This results in the tables easier for the machine operator to load and unload.

Included as a standard feature on the new SmartShop 3 models is a Laguna Tools designed “pod-ready” vacuum table, which combines with six vacuum zones, providing unbeatable fixturing possibilities. Part locator pins and extra -large vacuum ports have been included specifically for panel processing needs.

Another new innovation for the Laguna SmartShop 3 is the inclusion of the new OSAI Open machine control system. It includes a touch screen PC to provide a user-friendly GUI (Graphic User Interface). This also allows the machine to be connected to the local area network (LAN), making file transfers a breeze, while maintaining the reliability of a leading industrial CNC machine controller.

“I gave Laguna Engineering a challenge to develop the next generation SmartShop CNC,” said Torben Helshoj, President of Laguna Tools. “The design requirements were quite simple. It had to build on the tremendous success the SmartShop CNCs have enjoyed. It had to be a platform that would allow us to expand the CNC product line in a variety of directions (into the foreseeable future). It had to have the best vacuum table in the industry. It had to have a “full-feature” machine controller that was still easy-to-learn and easy-to-use and that could handle multi-axis applications. And, it had to be affordable. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of this project, the Laguna SmartShop 3! It truly expresses our company spirit, ‘Thriving on Innovation.’ I think the future is very bright for this product.”

The Laguna SmartShop 3 is available in a variety of standard table sizes including 4 x 4, 4 x 8, 5 x 10, and 5 x 12. Custom table sizes and machining packages can also accommodate special application needs.


Laguna Tools is a global leader in affordable CNC technology for the wood, plastic, non-ferrous, and aerospace industries. The privately owned company is based in Irvine, CA, and has a near-31-year history of product innovation. The company prides itself in sourcing the very finest machine components worldwide to ensure that Laguna Tool products offer performance second-to-none.

Laguna Tools products are sold worldwide both direct to the consumer as well as through a network of authorized Laguna Tools dealers.
