Abstract

··· Disclosed is an Assembly tooling for Magnetic Head slapping prevention during HDE/HSA assembly process. The Figure shows the Head separator design, which is used during a HSA and HDE assembly process to keep heads facing each other apart. Generally a large amount of G-shock applies to HSA by handling and machine motions during assembly process. Heads slapping with the G-shock would damage magnetic heads. This Head separator has a function of preventing head slapping with supporting HGA against these G-shock apply. Each HGA on top and middle area near to Magnetic head likes figure were supported by comb of Head separator.
