In this thesis, different types of the magnetic lead screw systems are considered, and the effects of the key design parameters, such as magnet thickness, air-gap length, pole-pitch, number of pole-pairs, dimension etc. on the force/torque transmission are investigated. Moreover, research into the realisation of helical magnetisation distribution employing a novel impulse magnetisation process is undertaken, in order to reduce the complexity and cost of manufacture. This avoids the complex and/or time-consuming methods, which may require the assembly of a large number of small magnets to approximate helical magnetisation distribution. A prototype reluctance type magnetic screw system is realised, it consists of a double start mechanical screw and a permanent magnet nut equipped with impulse magnetised cylindrical permanent magnets, using purpose designed double-sided impulse magnetising fixture. Furthermore, a test-rig to measure the transmitted force is developed and used to compare the predicted and measured results.
