Practical Aspects of Hot Stylus

Some practical solutions to problems which arise in the use of the hot stylus technique in disk recording are presented. The author considers (1) the matching of stylus to cutter head, (2) the influence of burnishing facet size upon frequency response, distortion, and head wear, and (3) the design of feather edge styli. Procedures for setting the optimum working temperature, the elimination of resonance effects, and adjustment of cutting depth are given.
