A dynamic measurement method of static R/W skew caused by MR-Inductive element alignment error is discussed. A geometrical model for the displacement between a write gap and a read gap on a swing arm is formulated. A measurement method wthich employs read-after-write procedure on disk surfaces in a drive is proposed. A simulation results is reported. It contributes to increase the track densities of HDDs using MR/Inductive heads in the region of more than 200 TPMM (5000 TPI).
