Schlenker collets and guide bushings include a selection of fully sealed collets made from the finest materials available for long, uninterrupted use, the company says. Each of these collets are made from steel specifically made for this intended use and are manufactured to accept polyurethane inserts that grip the barstock rather than steel. This allows the user to cut softer materials such as aluminum, brass and synthetics without any marks being left on the outside dimension of the final product. These inserts can be manufactured to grip round, square, hex and profiled materials.

The collet slots are enclosed with a silicone material that serves as a barrier to keep chips and debris out of the openings. Once the bar is clamped in the polyurethane insert and the collet is in the closed position, it is entirely sealed against contamination. This results in a more accurate, repeatable grip and a collet that is easy to clean after use. Besides being highly accurate, the sealed insert-type collet is exceptional in its material make-up and construction, leaving the bar's finish unmarred. All of Schlenker collets and bushings have exceptional and consistent clamping pressures that handle bar inaccuracies and fluctuations with ease.
