This paper focuses on an experimental investigation of a novel friction drive, a magnetic belt drive (MBD), in which an additional frictional force between the belt and pulleys is provided by the usage of magnetic belt and magnets. The effective tension, elastic creep rate, and transmission efficiency of a prototype of the MBD were measured by experiments against a few running parameters, such as initial tension, input torque, and magnetic flux density. The results demonstrate that the MBD has better contact conditions and transmission performances than conventional belt drives in terms of the above measures.
