Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR THE RESTORATION OF OPTICAL STORAGE MEDIA
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DE RESTAURATION DE SUPPORTS OPTIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A restoration apparatus and method for removing surface defects that exit in a top surface layer of an optical storage medium, comprising a support carriage (12) having an interior portion containing fluids (156, 158); a retention disk (32) supported on a bearing surface (30) that freely rotates and said the retention disk is positioned within a fluid tight recess (22) that is in communication with the said fluids and the optical storage medium; and arm assembly (52) having a motor (100) and a polishing head (50) with a restoration medium, said arm is hingly attached to the top surface of the support carriage. Rotation of the polishing head against the surface of the optical storage medium causes it to rotate in an opposite direction.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil et un procédé de restauration permettant d'éliminer les défauts de surface que présente la couche superficielle supérieure d'un support optique. Ledit appareil comprend un chariot (12) de support comportant une partie intérieure renfermant des fluides (156, 158) ; un disque (32) de retenue reposant sur une surface (30) d'appui tournant librement, lequel disque est disposé à l'intérieur d'un évidement (22) étanche aux fluides communiquant avec les fluides et le support optique ; et un ensemble bras (52) pourvu d'un moteur (100), ainsi que d'une tête (50) de polissage équipée d'un support de restauration, ledit bras étant fixé de manière articulée à la surface supérieure du chariot de support. La rotation de la tête de polissage contre la surface du support optique entraîne la contre-rotation de ce dernier.
