One of the trends on information storage device is focused on the development of micro-optical devices with optical flying head (OFH). Many different types of sliders for OFH and optical component systems have been introduced in the literature. However, the important issues on the mechanical system, which consists of suspension, swing arm and voice coil motor (VCM) part has not been discussed up to date. In this research, a swing arm type actuator with suspension for micro optical disk drive is designed and developed, basically focused on the mechanical issues, which should be solved for real application.
