Hard disk drives (HDD) continue to play a crucial role in our digital lives, as we use them for data storage.
Data is written to and read from a disk through a movable actuator arm that has a small tubing component attached to a magnetic head.
Optinova produce high-performance tubing for various demanding applications. In HDDs, the tubing in polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) materials are a great match due to the outstanding properties of non-stick, excellent weather resistance, and exceptional dielectric properties.
Combined with Optinova´s experience in extrusion for small diameter with high-precision of the thin wall tube (PTFE Tube ID/OD @ 0.23/0.45 mm with +/-0.05mm) the firm enables seamless digital transfer of your data.
