FaCM Model 01- Building a force Amplifier using Innovative Approach!

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.

Let us look at the steps involved in developing a force amplifier prototype from one of our BendFlex design collection using the BendFlex Design Innovation Kit .
