CNC Routers use a variety of router bits.

Collets are manufactured from softer metal than tool-holders and feature special slots and cutouts allowing them to “collapse” and “spring” to tightly grip the cutting tool. As a result, they will wear out faster than the holders will.
Toolholder wear can not only reduce accuracy but also quickly wear out cutting tools and risk damage to the machine spindle or the holder itself
CNC tool holder forks wear out over time. If the HSK/ISO30/BT spindle is not clamping the tool properly, it may be the tool holder fork is worn which causes alignment issues.
