Hutchinson Technology Incorporated engages in the design, development, manufacture, and marketing of suspension assemblies for disk drives primarily in Thailand, Hong Kong, Japan, the United States, and the People's Republic of China. The company operates in two divisions, Disk Drive Components and BioMeasurement. The Disk Drive Components division manufactures suspension assemblies for various sizes and types of hard disk drives, as well as provides etched and stamped components used in connection with, or related to, suspension assemblies. This divisions products are primarily used as components of disk drives that hold the read/write heads in position above the spinning magnetic disks. It sells its suspension assemblies to original equipment manufacturers and to subassemblers. The BioMeasurement division provides the InSpectra StO2 System for use in the trauma, emergency medicine, and critical care settings to directly monitor the compromised tissue perfusion associated with hemorrhagic and other forms of shock.
