Rings on CMC spindles

#1

On a lot of CMC Magnetics CD-R spindles (and Made in Taiwan Mitsubishis, I assume made at the CMC factory), there are usually two or three small plastic rings at the top. What is the purpose of these rings?


#2

It is for packing purposes. To keep the CD-Rs from being knocked around while being shipped.


#3

Correct.

In my opinion, however, it is RiTEK and Prodisc that have the best packaging. That is:

  1. A reject clear CD on the top and bottom of the stack of discs.
  2. The entire stack is then cello-wrapped.
  3. The stack is placed into a cakebox spindle.
  4. (Prodisc only) A foam ring is placed on top of the stack to properly cushion the discs.
  5. The entire cakebox is then cello-wrapped.
