Abstract

At present, the cleaning of disk packs (9 disks) in manufacturing assembly is done by contact cleaning with a wiping cloth. A set of 10 arms is mounted on a fixture' Each arm is manually wrapped with cleaning cloth. The cleaning takes place by wiping and moving the arms toward the center of the rotating disk pack. The re-wrapping with new cleaning cloth for every disk pack is very time consuming (10 minutes for every disk pack).
