  • Publication number: 20140167577
    Abstract: A cage for hard disk drives includes left and right sidewalls parallel with each other, and a front wall perpendicularly connected between front sides of the left and right sidewalls. A receiving space is bound by the left sidewall, the right sidewall, and the front wall. The front wall defines a number of openings, through which the hard disk drives slide into or out of the cage. The cage further includes a reinforcing bracket fixed to an outside of the right sidewall. The reinforcing bracket includes a fixing flange abutting the right sidewall, and a middle plate perpendicularly extending from the fixing flange away from the right sidewall.

  • Patent number: 8570750
    Abstract: An exemplary hard disk drive mount includes a casing and a fixing plate. The casing defines a receiving space configured for receiving hard disk drives therein. The casing defines through holes at one side thereof. The fixing plate includes bulges corresponding to the through holes. The fixing plate is attached to the side of the casing with the bulges respectively traversing through the through holes into the receiving space of the casing. The bulges are elastically deformable such that when a given one of the hard disk drives is received in the receiving space, corresponding ones of the bulges resiliently abut a side of the hard disk drive and exert a compressing force on the hard disk drive whereby the hard disk drive is fixed in the casing.

  • Patent number: 8264833
    Abstract: An exemplary of an anti-vibration hard disk drive assembly includes a hard disk drive, a bracket containing the hard disk drive, a rack supporting the hard disk drive and the bracket, and an elastic structure disposed between the bracket and the rack. The rack includes a pair of rails supporting the bracket thereon. The elastic structure is disposed between the bracket and the pair of rails of the rack, whereby a vibration caused operation of the hard disk drive can be absorbed by the elastic structure.
