Mechanical gearboxes are used extensively to match the operating speed of prime-movers to the requirements of their loads. Although, high system torque densities can be achieved, gear lubrication and cooling are often required, whilst noise, vibration and reliability can be significant issues. The paper describes the design and performance of a magnetic gear, which employs rare-earth magnets, which simulation studies have shown to have a transmitted torque density exceeding 100 kNm/m3
