We propose to establish flying clearance at the head-disk interface by wearing the slider region that contains the transducer. The wear process is controlled by slider design, disk design, and the techniques used to control contact pressure at the wear region. The resulting distribution of flying clearance for a population of head-disk interfaces provides performance gains associated with lower magnetic spacing.
