Abstract

The figure illustrates a self-locating arm design which features cutouts, a support bridge, a datum pad, beveled surfaces, and a corner- break. High storage density hard files require good dynamic performance from low mass miniaturized components, while minimizing assembly cost and preserving rework capability. This arm addresses these needs.
