The Volusia Manufacturers Association’s Manufacturing Member, Magga Products, becomes a platinum sponsor of the VMA’s upcoming Manufacturers Expo 2011.
Magga Products recently became a platinum sponsor for the upcoming Volusia Manufacturers Expo 2011. Magga Products is a world class manufacturer of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) custom and classic machinery. Magga Products was founded in 1978 by Rick Morgan, who had the reputation as one of the nation’s leading machinists with over 50 years of experience.
CNC machinery basically involves five elements:
• Computer-aided Design (CAD),
• Computer-Aided Manufacturing ( CAM ),
• Controlling, and
Design involves thinking and planning the item you want to build. CAD (Computer Aided Design) involves translating your design into the computer. CAM involves setting the tool path and precision machine operations necessary for the manufacture of the desired object. A CAM system usually seeks to control the production process through varying degrees of automation. Because each of the many manufacturing processes in a CAM system is computer controlled, a high degree of precision can be achieved that is not possible with a human interface. Controlling involves knowing and directing your machine’s motion. Your machine’s motion type is dependent upon the machine but the most common types are rapid motion (positioning), straight line motion (linear interpolation), and circular motion (circular interpolation). There are many more elements involved in controlling such as compensation types, offsets, and so on, so it’s important to find someone who has experience in CNC such as Magga Products. Finally, the last element of CNC is machining or actually building your desired object to its specifications.
CNC machinery touches almost every form of manufacturing process in one way or another, and CNC machines typically replace or work in conjunction with some manufacturing processes. The more labor intensive processes can truly benefit from CNC by reducing the stress and strain of extreme, repetitive, manual processes on the manufacturing operator.
Magga Products has been strictly in the CNC machinery business for over 30 years in Daytona Beach , FL , and has a full line of equipment and world class machinists to complete any custom order. Introduction of CNC came about in the early 1970’s, and Magga Products has been a leader in this technology since its introduction.

Magga Products is always willing to be a leader for local manufacturing causes and dedicated to making local manufacturers successful. ” Magga Products is located at 1512 State Avenue, Suite A in Holly Hill, FL, their website Magga Products and can be reached at either 386.676.1080 or email address.
The upcoming Volusia Manufacturers Expo 2011 will be held on September 22nd, 2011 from 3:00 – 8:00 P.M. at the Daytona Beach Ocean Center. Participating Manufacturers will have the opportunity to showcase their talents or products to other manufacturers or expo attendees. Manufacturers additionally can interact with other local manufacturers. Attendance for the VMA Manufacturing Expo is free , but you need to RSVP for the event at http://www.vmaonline.com/EXPO/EXPO_Registration.asp. Manufacturers interested in participation can also download the table maps on this same page, with parking information also provided. Table placement is on a first come, first serve basis. A news broadcast from Volusia Magazine’s Business Beat and a video from the Daytona State College Center for Business and Industry can be watched on this page from last year’s event.
