Abstract:

Write density and tape interchangeability are limited by a number of tape-positioning errors, inaccuracies, offsets, skews, etc. The skew has the most important effect. Hence, a new design of magnetic-head is suggested in which improved techniques of tape positioning and holding make the skew error as low as 0.01-0.02 mm. A special formula is given for calculating the extreme design parameters of the tape-motion-direction assembly. Author
