Method Of Manufacturing A Transducer Suspension System

View page
US Patent:
5742996, Apr 28, 1998
Filed:
Jan 3, 1996
Appl. No.:
8/582288
Inventors:
Norman Kermit Frater - San Jose CA
David Gerson - Chapel Hill NC
Gary L. Heitkamp - Plymouth MN
Thomas Mark Hoffmann - Santa Cruz CA
John Philip Hollowell - Fremont CA
Peter William Kanas - San Jose CA
Oscar Jaime Ruiz - San Jose CA
Enrique Eduardo Sanicky - San Jose CA
Assignee:
International Business Machines Corporation - Armonk NY
International Classification:
G11B 548
G11B 2116
US Classification:
2960306
Abstract:
A method of manufacturing a transducer suspension system for a data storage disk drive device having electrical wires strung along the top surface of the suspension, by bending the wires around the distal end of the suspension and connecting the wires to electrical pads on the transducer slider below. The height of the wires is reduced by swiping the wires in a lateral direction using a two-finger member. The swipe operation bends the wires down to reduce the overall height and reduces the stress created by the wires in the electrical pad bonds and allows the slider gimbal the freedom to move.

Flexure Having Displaced Gimbal Bond Tongue With End Terminated Heads

View page
US Patent:
5781378, Jul 14, 1998
Filed:
Jun 14, 1996
Appl. No.:
8/662246
Inventors:
Gary L. Heitkamp - Plymouth MN
Lee A. Northouse - Bloomington MN
Lyle G. Johnson - Mayer MN
Assignee:
Seagate Technology, Inc. - Scotts Valley CA
International Classification:
G11B 560
US Classification:
360104
Abstract:
A head gimbal assembly includes a gimbal having a first strut and a second strut and a crossmember connected generally between the first and second struts. A gimbal bond tongue has a first end connected to the crossmember and a second end extending from the crossmember. The first and second struts are generally parallel to one another and define a suspension axis. The first end of the gimbal bond tongue is offset from the suspension axis along the crossmember. A slider is coupled to the gimbal bond tongue and a transducer is coupled to the slider.

Apparatus And Method For Adhesively Connecting Wires To A Suspension Arm In A Disk Drive Assembly

View page
US Patent:
6112400, Sep 5, 2000
Filed:
Jul 31, 1998
Appl. No.:
9/126611
Inventors:
Norman Kermit Frater - San Jose CA
Gary Lee Heitkamp - Morgan Hill CA
Hsuehmin Li - Milpitas CA
Diane Sprandel O'Regan - Los Gatos CA
Rudy Vadillo - Gilroy CA
Assignee:
International Business Machines Corporation - Armonk NY
International Classification:
G11B 5127
US Classification:
2960303
Abstract:
A head suspension assembly including a load beam having predefined gluing regions for gluing a bundle of wires thereto. For each gluing region, the load beam is partially-etched with the pattern that includes a plurality of grooves. Preferably, the pattern within the gluing region includes a set of parallel grooves. The gluing regions can be formed at very little cost because partial etching can be performed simultaneously etching other features on the load beam. Advantageously, the gluing regions provide enhanced adhesion between the wires and the load beam which reduces the possibility of failure during manufacture, thereby reducing costs.
