The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of misalignment on traction coefficient in case of crossed axle type traction drive. The measurements of traction force were performed using small size experimental apparatus (average roller diameter is 50 mm, rotational speed of driving roller is 90 rpm). And the comparison of experimental results with calculations of the two dimensional thermal non-Newtonian elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication was performed. Following conclusions were obtained (1) Maximum traction coefficient in this test is 0.1-0.13. There is no difference between the traction drives and conventional parallel type traction drives. (2) Traction coefficient becomes large by increase of either contact force or misalignment. (3) The measured results are compared to the calculation and it is confirmed that the calculation method is practical and useful.
