Abstract

Magnetic disks for hard file development must be protected from contamination when transported between clean room environments. As shown in Figs. 1 and 2, the disk storage case consists of: lid 1, interlock recesses 2 to accommodate feet on the bottom of another case when cases are stacked, contents label 3, tabs 4 to lock the case and prevent inadvertent opening and disk contamination, latch 5, carrying handle 6, recessed side handles 7, seal 8, base 9, slot ID numbers 10, magnetic recording disks 11 and disk retainer slots 12. When a disk is to be removed from the case, there is enough clearance to permit removal of the disk without contacting or disturbing other disks in the case, and when a disk is to be returned to the case, there is sufficient clearance to prevent contacting or disturbing other disks.
