Abstract

Tool 10, shown in A, is provided for assembling tape heads. Tool 10 is a flat, preferably nonferrous metal sheet having a plurality of core locating slots 12 and 14 and a plurality of shield locating slots 16. During assembly, cores 18 and shields 20 are initially coated with an epoxy adhesive. Then, as shown in B and C, cores 18 are located in slots 12 and 14. Tabs 22 on shields 20 are fitted into slots 16. A desired number of shields and cores are alternately arranged on tool 10 and covering members 24, 26, and 28 are placed over them as shown in D. After coil leads 30 and 32 are connected to pins 34 and 36 carried in member 28 and the internal cavities filled with potting material, the entire tool 10 is machined away during rough grinding operations on the head.
