Title (EN) DISC DRIVE SLIDER HAVING TEXTURED PADS
(FR) GLISSEUR DE LECTEUR DE DISQUE POURVU DE PASTILLES TEXTUREES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A disc drive slider (118) includes a slider body (143) and a rail (148) formed on the slider body. The rail includes a bearing surface (146) which faces a surface (120) of a disc (102). A textured portion (163) is formed on the bearing surface of the rail. Pads (162) are deposited on the textured portions. The pads operate to reduce stiction, dynamic friction, and the likelihood of damage to the slider or the surface of the disc due to contact therebetween.
(FR)Un glisseur de lecteur de disque (118) comprend un corps de glisseur (143) et un rail (148) formé sur ledit corps. Ce rail présente une surface de support (146) qui fait face à une surface (120) d'un disque (102). Une portion texturée (163) est formée sur la surface de support du rail. Des pastilles (162) sont disposées sur les portions texturées et servent à réduire le blocage par adhérence, la friction dynamique et la possibilité d'un endommagement du glisseur ou de la surface du disque en raison de leur contact.
