    Whether you press on the front, like an ER style, or pull with a draw bar, the collet moves longitudinally. It is pretty much the nature of the beast and attempts to design a collet that doesn't move are likely to create more problems (like runout) than they solve.

      Collet

      There are collet holders where the collet is stationary and a sleeve around it moves up and down parallel to the length of the collet. The manual lever closer pictured above and the air powered one mentioned earlier are 2 examples.
