Mechanical Lock for Magnetic Recording Device

Locking of magnetic recording devices, having dimensions which do not permit the use of tie bolts, is accomplished by employing an epoxy encapsulating material between the sections of the device.

In the normal process of constructing magnetic recording devices, an encapsulating epoxy compound is employed to form a protective film around the track wires. The wires are encapsulated at 1 and are connected to the electrical plugs 2 and 3 of the device.

If radial and angular cutouts at 4, 5, and 6, respectively, are formed within the housing of the magnetic recording device, this epoxy compound flows into the cutout regions. After curing, the epoxy is rigid and formed into a single mass of material. The rigid mass of material acts as a mechanical interlock between the various sections of the recording device, preventing their separation under normal operating conditions.
