Magnetic Head Construction

The ceramic member of a magnetic recording head includes an imbedded piece of metal which can be used to resistance weld the head to the metal gimbal plate of a floppy disk drive's head accessing arm.

In the figure, an elongated metal insert l0, of a generally U-shaped cross section, is molded into the head's ceramic block ll. Block ll is about 0.080 inch square, and of a length (the dimension into the figure) of about 0.225 inch. When block ll is cut, in planes parallel to the figure, and then shaped to size, a portion of insert l0 is in position, in each individual cut piece, to perform its function as a weld base.

An alternate scheme would be to glue a flat piece of metal such as l0 on the surface l2 of block ll.
