Abstract

Vibrations in the head-disk assembly are caused by pulsations in the spindle motor which are transmitted to the assembly through the spindle drive belt. The vibration is dampened by mounting the assembly to the drive frame with a guide having a resilient portion to absorb the peak energy of the vibrations.
