Engineering services for the machine tool and workholding industries.

There’s a reason that top American and foreign automakers, Harley Davidson, Caterpillar, the Department of Defense and the US Navy turn to Chuck Miller, the founder of Global Workholding, for help with precision production of automotive, motorcycle and defense system parts and equipment; Chuck has established himself as a leading authority in the machine tool industry with the skills to facilitate the most challenging projects and an unshakable commitment to customer satisfaction.

For nearly three decades, Chuck has translated a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Design into a pathway for experience in design and implementation of workholding systems that work! That included serving as president of CD Miller & Associates prior to founding Global Workholding in 2014.

Benchmarks along the way include contributing to an Illinois Lock Company patent, and redesign of Liquid Control’s company processes where Chuck substantially shortened cycle times. He revamped their shop and, in the process, reduced the number of machines required for full production from 54 to 14 and cycle times from 3.5 hours to 7.5 minutes, which resulted in impressive savings for Liquid Controls. Chuck implemented similar changes for Cummins-Allison saving the company $2.5-million annually.

We not only integrate, but unlike most companies in the industry, we design and build our own workholding.

Chuck’s versatility and skill has also served the medical product development industry well. On behalf of Innovation Neurotronics, he acquired multiple patents, including patents for a 60/60 Ambulatory Infusion Pump, Walk-Aide and V-Hold.
