Mike Miller & Sons, a precision production and machining business, based at Picton southwest of Sydney, is renowned for high quality components and output and superior levels of customer service.

The machining facilities at Mike Miller and Son’s plant include CNC lathes (high speed production machines, turning centres – up to 500mm diameter and 1.0metres between centres), CNC machining centres, conventional machining precision fabrication and welding and component assembly and test.

Quality systems based on ISO 9002 are in use and provide full traceability at all stages of manufacture.

In June 2006, at the AUSTECH 2006 Show in Sydney, General Manager, Nigel Miller, approached Hi-Tech Metrology about the purchase of a CMM for their business and after a number of months of on-going discussion and dialogue; Mike Miller and Sons ordered a brand-new Sheffield Discovery D12 CMM.  The CMM was delivered in March 2007.

The key reasons for Mike Miller & Sons purchasing the Sheffield CMM were, according to Nigel Miller:

  • Majority of work that they need to produce is very intricate and requires product verification and full 100% inspection. Demand from customers for improved quality and complete process control is becoming the norm, hence the requirement for a specialist metrology tool such as a CMM.
  • The purchase of a CMM now adds another dimension to Mike Miller & Sons business and enhances their quality assurance capabilities. 
  • Enables Mike Miller & Sons to potentially quote for additional services in the form of contract inspection work. 
  • Overall Mike Miller & Sons are extremely happy with the Sheffield CMM and it would seem that the experience in dealing with Hi-Tech Metrology has been enjoyable, with all aspects of the project - from first point of contact with Hi-Tech, to machine install, to software training and service, has been both professional and all times helpful.
