Actuator shock limitter for Hard disk drive

Disclosed is shock limitter structure of Hard Disk Drive (HDD) to

improve anti-shock resistance.

The Figure shows an sample of this shock limitter structure.

The space between actuator arm and limitter is a little bit smaller than

the space between actuator arm and disk.

Large shock applied, actuator arm hits at the limitter, before actuator

arm hits the disks.

No disk damage due to actuator arm hitting occurs.
