Abstract

A clamping array, adapted for use with magnetic head arm assemblies 10, employs clamping screws 12. Each screw 12 clamps two head assemblies while each head assembly is in clamping relation with an adjusting screw 14. After the head arm assemblies are adjusted by screws 14 radially relative to magnetic disk 16, screws 12 are tightened without any displacement of the previously adjusted head assemblies. Flexible strip 18 having slits is disposed between screws 12 and the head arm assemblies to preclude such interaction. Stiffening washers 20 can be used with each alternate screw 12.
