Abstract

Disclosed is a new a wire/tube capture structure used with a load beam. For holding the wire/tube running from a transducer, wire capture members are extending from the edge of the load beam as shown in Fig. 2. Current capture members are constituted from two or more tabs extending from the most outside edge of the load beam as shown in Fig. 2. A wire can be held by turning the tabs as shown in Fig. 3. However, in this current structure, wire can slip off as shown in Fig. 3 "Current Design".

New Wire/Tube Capture Structure for Load Beam

      Disclosed is a new a wire/tube capture structure used with a
load beam.  For holding the wire/tube running from a transducer, wire
capture members are extending from the edge of the load beam as shown
in Fig. 2.  Current capture members are constituted from two or more
tabs extending from the most outside edge of the load beam as shown
in Fig. 2.  A wire can be held by turning the tabs as shown in
Fig. 3.  However, in this current structure, wire can slip off as
shown
in Fig. 3 "Current Design".

      As shown in Fig. 1, the new wire/tube capture structure has one
more tab extending from the inner area of the load beam.  In the "New
Design", Fig. 3, the inner tab prevents the wire from slipping off.

      The wire can be held by the tabs accurately by capturing the
wire from both sides (Fig. 4).  The shape and number of tabs are not
limited.
