Twin boundary motion is the basic mechanism responsible for fast actuation of magnetic shape memory (MSM) alloys. Previous studies implied on a wide diversity of twin boundary velocities measured under similar conditions. Here, a data set of more than 400 velocity values is measured under conditions that are relevant for MSM applications and represents the dynamic behavior of 73 twin boundaries. Velocities are measured using an electro-mechanical setup that applies a controllable \(\upmu{\text{s}}\)-scale force pulse and combines force measurements with high-speed imaging. The latter allows extracting velocities of individual twin boundaries, which are then correlated to the macroscopic stress in the sample. The appearance of type I twins is more prevalent than type II, resulting a much larger data set for type I twins. Statistical analysis of velocity points of type I twins reveals an increasing trend of the velocity with the macroscopic stress, as well as useful information on the probability distribution of velocity data. Velocities of type II twins exhibit large variability over a relatively narrow stress range. This can reason the large differences in maximal velocities reported previously for this twin type. The obtained statistical data can improve the design and modeling of MSM actuators.
