Where Do Hard Drive Heads Come From?
We were recently fortunate enough to visit Seagate’s operation in Ireland. This wasn’t a pleasure trip. Rather, the purpose was to tour of one of the manufacturer’s most important manufacturing sites: Springtown, home to the plant where over 30% of the world’s hard disk read/write heads come from.
If you’ve ever wondered just what’s under the hood of your hard disk, come with us as we take a behind-the-scenes tour of exactly how the process works.
