Abstract

Clip adjustment during balance correction by pushing on the outside of the clip tab. The advantages of this invention are as the followings: a. such operation tends to make the clips better conform to the retaining grooves of the balance clip holder, and therefore the clips are less likely to move out of the retaining grooves. b. Since the clips are less likely to move out of the retaining grooves during adjustment, this invention allows shallower retaining groove depth in both radial and z directions, which makes the motor design more space efficient.
