In the manufacturing industry, collet is a term used to describe a type of tool holder that is used to securely hold a cutting tool or drill bit in place during machining operations. Collets are typically made of high-quality materials such as steel, brass, or aluminum, and are designed to provide a precise and reliable grip on the tool, ensuring that it remains in place during high-speed machining operations.

Collets are an essential component of many different types of manufacturing processes, including CNC machining, milling, drilling, and turning. They are used to hold a wide range of cutting tools, including end mills, drills, reamers, and taps, and are available in a variety of sizes and configurations to suit different types of tools and machines.

One of the key benefits of using collets in manufacturing is that they provide a high degree of accuracy and repeatability, which is essential for producing high-quality parts and components. Collets are also designed to be easy to use and maintain, which helps to reduce downtime and increase productivity in the manufacturing process.
