Intevac is the global market leader for HDD magnetic media equipment. Over 65% of the world’s hard disk output is produced on Intevac’s systems—more than 50 million disks per month. Today, Intevac is working with key customers to develop the tools necessary for the continuous growth of HDD to ultra-high density magnetic storage.


Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR)

Storage density and capacity in the hard disk drive industry have long been driven by areal density growth. Learn how improved PMR processes enable continuing density growth.

Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR)

Heat is applied in the recording process to increase data storage capacity. Learn about the benefits and challenges that HAMR presents.

Patterned Media

One key challenge to the production of patterned media is fabricating sub-20nm features on the entire media surface while maintaining a very fine degree of precision. Learn how Intevac leverages our technology for a solution.
