Abstract

A core is safely contained within a mount which exposes its surface for contouring without deleterious clamping. This mount is self tooling in that the inner walls locate the core perpendicularly in both directions, while a pin in the underside of the mount locates the core both vertically and in proper gap-to-apex position laterally.

Mount for Magnetic Head Core

A core is safely contained within a mount which exposes its surface for contouring without deleterious clamping. This mount is self tooling in that the inner walls locate the core perpendicularly in both directions, while a pin in the underside of the mount locates the core both vertically and in proper gap-to-apex position laterally.

A bonding agent, such as liquid epoxy, securely fixes the core in position without exerting significant stresses in the core. The core windings lie within clearance notches of the mount and the leads are attached to a suitable terminal board bonded to the side of the mount. The core and mount are now a complete final assembly.

Contouring of the core is performed by appropriate lapping techniques, the mount having the necessary features for location and attachment. Upon completion of contouring, the unmodified core-mount assembly is directly used as a combination head and test fixture or as a magnetic head mounted in an appropriate drive.
