Abstract

Flexible magnetic recording disks need to be tested under use conditions, one of them being that the disks are normally sealed in a flexible plastic envelope or cartridge. We have designed a dummy cartridge for use in a disk-testing machine which is similar to the disk-enclosing envelope supplied to users.
