Manufacturing of External Magnetic Hard Drives?
External hard drives are an integral part of our lives for many of us, especially those who work with computers. They are so common that we don’t even think about the actual mechanism and their structure. Therefore, we often do not even know that the technology would not work without the help of these magnetic external hard drives.
Earlier in our blog, we already talked about magnetic data recording and magnetic storage but only on hard drives. Now we want to take a closer look at the structure of the little magnetic wonder that helps us to reliably store and classify all of our data.

As the English name Hard Disk already suggests, external hard disks are made up of various hard disks, mainly ceramic, metal or glass. These discs rotate counterclockwise at several thousand revolutions per second to record the bits of the computer (series of numbers between 0 and 1 in a language called binary).
This is when the magnets come into play. These bits are stored in an incredibly thin magnetic layer, which in turn is covered with a protective layer. All this can only be done by electromagnets which pass through the so-called read and write heads.

So there’s a lot going on with the hard drive and, as we know, it’s quite a small device. These are the smallest parts that work together, which is why it is important that nothing comes into contact with these particles because they are very sensitive.
Besides magnetic external hard drives, there are also electronic hard drives, often abbreviated as SSD (Solid State Drive), which are more expensive, but also much more robust and also work faster.
