Tecnicrafts, located in India, manufactures collets and guide bushings for use on Citizen-Cincom, Tsugami, Star, Tornos, Hanwha, Traub, Hardinge, Manurhin-Kmx, Miyano, Nomura and other Swiss-type machine brands.

The collets are offered in steel- and carbide-lined versions with grooved, smooth and serrated bores in standard and long-nose types. Special collets such as V-line, U-line and over-grip collets are designed for positive gripping on delicate parts without leaving marks. Ultra precision (XP) W-type collets are available for tool grinding applications on machines from such brands as Rollomatic, Anca and Ewag. Other collets offered include 5C and 16C types. 

Tecnicrafts’ guide bushings are generally offered with carbide lining, providing afinish bore with a roughness value of less than 0.4 micron. These guide bushings include U-line, extended-nose and long carbide bores (Max Land) for special turning applications.

All collets and guide bushings are offered in standard and ultra-precision grades. The bore profile includes round, square, hexagon, rectangular and profile bores, as per user drawings.
