Smart Head Cleaning (USTC)

The Universal Smart Test and Cleaning (“USTC”) cartridge is the first host-based tape drive cleaning technology of its kind in the tape drive industry. USTC cartridges eliminate the current guess work of how many times to run a cleaning cartridge by automatically testing and repeatedly cleaning the drive until it passes a comprehensive quality test. These results are then reported to you in Tape Drive Doctor. Each USTC cartridge can be used up to 50 times and is competitively priced. Purchase >

Smart Head Lapping (HRC)

The Head Recover Cartridge ("HRC") is the world's first host-based tape drive repair system that combines Diamond Lapping Tape and Smart Cleaning technologies. HRC presents a major cost-reducing solution for tape drive repair shops and manufacturers. Please contact sales@tapedrivedoctor.com prior to your first purchase of HRC. Also, please note that royalty payments are applicable for drives that pass the HRC testing process per the terms of a cartridge use agreement.
