Abstract

This process transports, delivers and positions a spring in a computer-controlled timed sequence. The process is illustrated for disk drive assemblies by delivering and placing a spring on the disk drive's cleaning pad automatically, with subsequent delivery of the assembled cleaning pad unit to the disk drive.
