Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) continue to play a crucial role in our digital lives, as we use HDDs as our data storage device. The way that data is written to and read from the disk, is through the movable actuator arm that has a small tubing component attached to the magnetic head.
At Optinova, we produce high-performance tubing for various demanding applications. In HDDs, the tubing in PTFE and 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) we enable seamless digital transfer of your data.
