Abstract

To maximize the usable disk surface in a file requires a crash stop system that minimizes the data band location tolerance and the allocated deflection tolerances of the actuator. Referring to Figs. 1 and 2, the crash stop utilizes a pair of rods 1 each supported at each end in bores 3 machined in the base casting 2. (Image Omitted) If two rods are used, the spring rate can be adapted to the specific requirements of the inner diameter (ID) and outer diameter (OD). As seen in Fig. 3, though less adaptable, a single rod 7 may also be used to provide a simpler and more economical crash stop system. The rod 7 is mounted between the projections 8 on the rotary carriage to enable a single rod to restrict travel in both directions of rotation.
