Abstract

Contact disk recording allows the recording of relatively high bit densities. Varying contact pressures, however, result from major and minor disk runout.

Compliant Head Mounting

Contact disk recording allows the recording of relatively high bit densities. Varying contact pressures, however, result from major and minor disk runout.

Free movement along the Y axis and about the X and Z axes and extreme rigidity about the Y axis and along the X and Z axes is desirable. Such are provided by securing magnetic transducer 1 to a head mount body by four fine- runout cantilever springs. The head mount body rests on three FLOROSINT* pads which, in turn, ride on the silicon monoxide surface of the disk.

Very light preloading of the cantilever springs allows the magnetic element to comply with minor runout. The pads provide major runout compliance. *FLOROSINT is a trademark of Polymer Corp.
