Abstract

A plurality of flexible magnetic loops 21...24, etc., is supported between drums 10 and 11. The opposite rotations cause each belt to be rotated at a substantially stationary position. A read-write head 31 is supported within any or every one of the loops such as 23. Each loop is magnetically coated on its inner surface engaging the head. Air lubrication can be provided between the head and magnetic surface. The magnetic surface moves past the head at a velocity equal to S. In the case where only a single head 31 is used, it can be moved to engage any respective loop. Stationary barriers, not shown, can be provided between the loops to maintain their relative positions.
