Abstract

The procedure outlined solves the lack of burnishing efficiency of head disk interfaces that require burnishing. To reduce the magnetic spacing between the head and the disk, the allowance for interference is a promising solution path. However, the ever decreasing disk take-off height will limit the effectiveness of this solution significantly.
