Collets and Guide Bushings

Edge Technologies is the importer and distributor for the German made Schlenker collets and guide bushings.

Edge Technologies represents the full line of Schlenker collets and guide bushings, including a selection of fully sealed collets made for uninterrupted use.

Each of these collets are made from steel specifically for this intended use and are manufactured to accept polyurethane inserts that grip the bar stock rather than steel. This allows the user to cut softer materials such as aluminum, brass and synthetics without 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 slots of the collet 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," said a company spokesperson.

"All of Schlenker collets and bushings have consistent clamping pressures that can handle bar inaccuracies and fluctuations with ease," said the spokesperson.
