Abstract

As storage data density in hard-disk drives (HDDs) increases for constant or miniaturizing sizes, precision positioning of HDD heads becomes a more relevant issue to ensure enormous amounts of data to be properly written and read. Since the traditional single-stage voice coil motor (VCM) cannot satisfy the positioning requirement of high-density tracks per inch (TPI) HDDs, dual-stage servo systems have been proposed to overcome this matter, by using VCMs to coarsely move the HDD head while piezoelectric actuators provides fine and fast positioning. Thus, the aim of this work is to apply topology optimization method (TOM) to design novel piezoelectric HDD heads, by finding optimal placement of base-plate and piezoelectric material to high precision positioning HDD heads. Topology optimization method is a structural optimization technique that combines the finite element method (FEM) with optimization algorithms. The laminated finite element employs the MITC (mixed interpolation of tensorial components) formulation to provide accurate and reliable results. The topology optimization uses a rational approximation of material properties to vary the material properties between 'void' and 'filled' portions. The design problem consists in generating optimal structures that provide maximal displacements, appropriate structural stiffness and resonance phenomena avoidance. The requirements are achieved by applying formulations to maximize displacements, minimize structural compliance and maximize resonance frequencies. This paper presents the implementation of the algorithms and show results to confirm the feasibility of this approach.
