Monolithic Composite Actuator Comb

      A method for making a thermoplastic composite direct access
storage device (DASD) actuator comb with superior performance is
disclosed.

      The process is to injection mold the comb assembly, with
various metal, ceramic or fibrous inserts, where appropriate, to meet
the required performances.  These include: dynamic response, thermal
stability, chemical inertness, particulate cleanliness and geometric
stability (see the figure).
