In that circumstance yes, I believe they take out all of the platters and put them in to a machine which acts as a hard drive to spin up the platters and read the data.

Yep Frags got it. Obviously the environment has to be dust-free, which is probably where a lot of the money on these facilities gets spent.

the platters dont spin in their recovery machines, the heads spin around the platters.
