What is amazing about TDK’s nanotechnology and thin-film technologies?
The TDK nanotechnology and thin-film technologies
developed through HDD magnetic heads is
TDK has been the world leader in the HDD magnetic head field. As a result of industry consolidation, TDK has become the only specialized magnetic head maker, and this too is proof of the superiority of its technology. TDK’s magnet heads make use of nanotechnologies and thin films just 2 µm thick. This technology is used to form multiple thin layers measured in microns or sub-microns on the surface of materials similar to semiconductor manufacturing processes. TDK has provided more than 7 billion high-quality, thin-film heads to the world. These high-precision thin-film technologies are truly at the world’s highest levels.
TDK applies the nanotechnologies and thin-film technologies that it developed through HDD magnetic heads in electronic materials such as capacitor materials, metal magnetic materials, and RF components. As a part of its efforts to reinforce these technologies even further, TDK established the Thin-Film Device Center in November 2013 and is working on new innovations.
