Hutchinson Technology is a key worldwide supplier of suspension assemblies for disk drives. Suspension assemblies precisely position the recording head above the disk and provide the electrical connection from the recording head to the disk drive’s circuitry.

    You will find our suspension assemblies in virtually every size and type of disk drive, from those used in PCs to those used in enterprise and cloud computing. Our suspension assemblies can also be found in consumer electronics devices such as digital video recorders and personal storage devices.

    Continual advances in disk drive technology require suspension assemblies with specialized designs, expanded functionality, and greater precision. We work closely with our customers to develop suspension assembly products that address disk drive performance challenges such as the use of smaller read/write heads, increased data density, improved reliability, and reduced data access time.

    Suspension assemblies are critical to disk drive performance and have helped enable the remarkable combination of increasing disk drive storage capacity and declining prices.
