A collet chuck applies clamping force all around the circumference of the part instead of just at select contact areas. The result is tight concentricity. This can be particularly significant for second-operation work where accuracy relative to the first operation is a concern. Even when a jaw chuck is used for the first operation, a collet chuck may be used for the second operation because of its precision clamping. A jaw chuck with bored soft jaws repeats within 0.0006 to 0.0012 inch TIR. A collet chuck typically provides repeatability of 0.0005 inch TIR or better. The collet chuck can also be adjusted for concentricity during installation to further improve secondary operation
Work piece Dimensions:Collet chucks are best suited to work pieces smaller than 2 inches in diameter.
A collet chuck may also impose a limitation on the work piece length. Specifically, a collet chuck limits the machine's range of axial (Z-axis) travel, because its length is longer than that of a jaw chuck. When the machining length of a work piece is so long that just about all of the available travel of the machine is needed to cut it, then this requirement will probably dictate the use of a jaw chuck.
