LTO heads fail due to wear which causes loss of intimate tape contact with the elements prior to any appreciable impact on the actual read or write functionality of the elements occurs.
The benefits of using NCE's in-house LTO head rework services:
By removing the wear patterns, and restoring the original contour, without in this case removing any material from the active elements, the LTO head can be repaired.
NCE’s new automated process uses in-house developed software to measure the resistance of the channels while lapping the head on the fly. The software controls the Automatic Lapping fixture and will automatically stop the lapping when the desired resistances parameters are met.
Based upon extensive in-house life testing and our experienced engineers, for those heads which have failed due to wear, a repair yield well in excess of 50% can be achieved and the life expectancy for a repaired head, should be in excess of 80% of new head life.
Through this innovation and extensive testing we are able to offer a service that is of top quality and more importantly cost effective.
