Abstract

A thin, flat, resilient X shaped torsion element 1 is interposed in a spaced relationship between a transducer 2 and a support arm 3 so that each cross piece of the X can twist the other about its longitudinal axis in the nature of torsion bars, to permit the transducer 2 to follow closely the surface of a recording medium 4, riding on a thin fluid film.

Transducer Mounting

A thin, flat, resilient X shaped torsion element 1 is interposed in a spaced relationship between a transducer 2 and a support arm 3 so that each cross piece of the X can twist the other about its longitudinal axis in the nature of torsion bars, to permit the transducer 2 to follow closely the surface of a recording medium 4, riding on a thin fluid film.

Cross piece 1A of the element 1 should be centered on cross piece 1B if the transducer 2 is to remain parallel to the medium 4. If it is desired that the transducer plane with the trailing edge closer to the medium, the cross piece 1A should be to right of center of cross piece 1B. In this case, the magnetic probe unit 10 should be shifted toward the trailing (lower right hand) end of the transducer 2.
