Abstract

For maximum performance, a transducer (head) mounted on an arm should move along a radial line of the disk while the gap G of the head is preferably aligned with recording, i.e., also tracks a radial line. The above optimum arrangement can be achieved by a simple two-adjustment head-arm support.
