Head Guard/Clip Device for Manufacture

      Disclosed is an actuator head guard/clip device that
facilitates the assembly of a direct access storage device (DASD).

      The device is illustrated in Fig. 1 alone, and is attached to
an actuator assembly in Fig. 2.

      The device is attached to an actuator arm 6 by using an
internal flexible clip 1 and alignment guides 2.  The arm suspensions
7 and heads 8 are kept clear of each other with separator posts 3,
and protected from external damage by a guard housing 4.  The
actuator arm and device can then be attached to an actuator carriage
5.  This can then be followed by installation and attachment of the
adjacent arm/suspension assemblies.
