New Acoustic Tester System for Hard Disk Drives

      Disclosed is a new system for acoustic measurement of Hard Disk
Drives (HDDs).  This system can reduce outside acoustic noise
efficiently, and execute a smooth operation.  As shown in the Figure,
this new system has double dumping structure with double shock mounts
(1),(2).

      For loading and unloading operation of the pallet which carries
HDDs can be executed by using a guide rail (3) and push chain (4)
structure.  This system executes automatic door open and shut
operation
so the measurement time of the HDD units can be reduced.
