Wire and Tube Guide on Load Beam

      Disclosed is Suspension Design and Method for Tube Crimping
Guide on Load Beam to improve assembling, to control Static Attitude
with wire tension stiffness.

      Fig. 1 shows Conventional Suspension Design.  For MR head, 4
wires cause the change of HSA Static Attitude.

      Fig. 2 shows the New Design and Method for Tube and Wire
position control.  The most important point is making Tube Guide on
Load Beam to get accurate tube crimping position.  It makes wire
tension and stiffness more stable and head flying height performance
better.

      Figs. 3, 4, 5, and 6 show arranged examples of this new design.

      This new design also makes wire assembling easier, because of
better handling of tube crimping.  It reduces cost and improves
productivity.
