Abstract

Head suspension assemblies (HSA's) are snapped in, allowing for ease of assembly. This design for snapping in the HSA's is of low profile and therefore can be used in thin spaces such as in files and pack level testing.

Head Suspension Assembly Fixture for Test and File Use

Head suspension assemblies (HSA's) are snapped in, allowing for ease of assembly. This design for snapping in the HSA's is of low profile and therefore can be used in thin spaces such as in files and pack level testing.

Using a double taper burnish arm 1, cut off as shown in Fig. 1, there is a spring 2, which mounts to the variable V block 3. The second V block 3 is doweled rigid to give a constant mounting surface. The spring and V block pressure the HSA into the rigid V block as it is inserted in front of the arm. The dowel 4 is the hard stop, assuring that the arm is inserted to the proper length dimension. This affixes the HSA solidly until the HSA is physically pulled out and replaced.
