Abstract

This article describes a unique technique for attaching a shock mount to a base of a hard disk drive. As shown in Fig. 1, a base 10 of a hard disk drive is supported by columnar shock mounts 12 fixed to a frame 11. In general, a spring constant of the shock mount 12 must be small in order to provide a good vibration-proof function.
