Title (EN) LOW MASS DISC DRIVE SUSPENSION
(FR) SUSPENSION DE FAIBLE MASSE POUR LECTEUR DE DISQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A suspension (22, 102, 190) supports a slider assembly (20, 204) in a disc drive (10). The suspension (22, 102, 190) includes a longitudinal axis (48, 114, 210), a proximal mounting section (40, 106) for mounting to a rigid track accessing arm (24, 204), a distal mounting section (42, 108) for supporting the slider assembly (20, 204), and first and second laterally spaced suspension beams (44, 46, 110, 112, 206, 208) extending from the proximal mounting section (40, 106) to the distal mounting section (42, 108). The first and second suspension beams (44, 46, 110, 112, 206, 208) have inside and outside edges (66, 68, 124, 126) relative to the longitudinal axis (48, 114, 210) and are flat from the inside edges (66, 124) to the outside edges (68, 126). A first preload bend (80, 113, 214) is formed in the first and second suspension beams (44, 46, 110, 112, 206, 208) transverse to the longitudinal axis (48, 114, 210).
(FR) Cette suspension (22, 102, 190), qui soutient un ensemble coulissant (20, 204) dans un lecteur de disque (10), comporte un axe longitudinal (48, 114, 210), un élément proximal de montage (40, 106) destiné à être monté sur un bras rigide d'accès à une piste magnétique (24, 204), un élément distal de montage (42, 108) destiné à soutenir l'ensemble coulissant (20, 204) ainsi qu'une première et une seconde barre de suspension séparées latéralement (44, 46, 110, 112, 206, 208) et s'étendant entre l'élément proximal (40, 106) et l'élément distal (42, 108). Ces deux barres de suspension (44, 46, 110, 112, 206, 208) comportent des arêtes internes et externes (66, 68, 124, 126) relativement à l'axe longitudinal (48, 114, 210) entre lesquelles elles sont plates. Un premier cintrage de préchargement (80, 113, 214) est constitué entre la première et la seconde barre de suspension (44, 46, 110, 112, 206, 208) transversalement à l'axe longitudinal (48, 114, 210).
