Using a mechanical stop for determining an operating parameter of a data handling device

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #7397623.

Several readings of an actuator's location are taken with a given head while urging the actuator against a mechanical stop, which acts as a guide. These readings are useful, for example, for estimating certain offsets or for determining a nominal track range for a data surface.
