Disclosed is a label alignment reference line on the PET film made by half-punch at it's cutting process. This PET film seal is a component to ensure hard drive air-proof. To reduce this film cost, no printing layer is laminated in the PET film.

The PET film layer structure is shown in Fig.1. The positioning line is applied to a PET layer (the most outside layer) only by half-punch, and not through it.

Company logo, HDD capacity and so on are listed on the product model label. It is very important for HDD featuring to align the product label. The poor alignment model label imparts bad impression to HDD customer; as it were the HDD quality is also poor. Reference line must be needed in the case of manual labeling.

Conventional HDD cover is made of metal with sealing gasket. Generally a marking-off line is applied by stamping process in this metal cover case.

HDD stiffness to be higher for external shock robustness, there is a big advantage of drop-in cover structure over the conventional design. In this drop-in cover structure, a cover seal that is composed of PET film is applied. And product model is on the cover seal. (Fig.2).
