New Head Loading Mechanism for Low Z Height Head Suspension Assembly

      Described is a head loading mechanism for low Z height Head
Suspension Assembly (HSA).  The head loading mechanism has a swing
arm.  The Head loading mechanism moves the HSA under the disk in
leaning position and load head swinging the arm.

      The Figures show an example of this mechanism.  The arm 1 is
moved by the operation of a cum 2.  The HSA 3 is positioned on the
arm 1.

      Fig. 1 shows the arm 1 which is positioned at a leaning
position.  The head loading mechanism moves the HSA under the disk 4
in a leaning position.

      Fig. 2 shows the arm 1 which is positioned at a loading
position.  The cum 2 rotates and the arm 1 is moved to the loading
position.  The arm is fixed at this loading position by a pin 5 and a
spring 6.  This loading mechanism achieves a low Z height HSA.
