A force amplifying compliant mechanism has its desirable applications where elements like sensors and transducers play its role. FaCM is based on principle of increased and amplified output for a given input, that is, there is an amplified force as an output for given input force.
Step 1:Building a CM kit model using Rigid linkages & flexural beams.The yellow dots in the image shows fixed regions.
Step 2: Design and Visualization using a design software to check feasibility of the design. This step will help a user to visualize the model in three dimension.
Step 3 : Prototyping and Simulation
