Guzik S1701 Spinstand and Components

  • Micropositioning System with Positioning Repeatability of 1 µIn
  • Programmable Speeds from 200-10,000 RPM
  • Compact, Table-Top Spin-Stand Instrument


The Guzik S-1701MP Micro Positioning Spinstand is equipped with a patented closed loop positioning system consisting of a piezo substage and precision optical scales with 0.04 µIn resolution. This results in track positioning repeatability of 1 µIn and track profile measurements with effectively zero hysteresis. This capability is a requirement in MR-Head testing and high TPI track profile and track interference analysis.

By locating the head gap in the center of a rotational system, skew angle control is accomplished by rotating the head around the head gap. In this manner the skew angle can be changed while remaining on the same track.

The unique capability of changing skew angles while remaining on track allows the user to perform a variety of measurements, including track profile analysis on a previously written track at varying skew angles. This unique measurement can produce a comb-shaped single-track profile plot.

Through a very simple mechanical conversion, the S-1701MP can be used for either head (HGA) or head stack (HSA) testing.

S-1701MP Features
• Universal Micro Positioning Spinstand Equipped for HGA, HSA, and Disk Testing
• Positioning Repeatability of 1 µIn with 0.04 µIn Resolution
• Air or Ball Bearing Spindles with Programmable Speeds from 200-10,000 RPM
• Table Top Unit
