New Ultra Light Vacuum Cleaner Motors Blog Post

Read why Panasonic was challenged to significantly reduce the weight of vacuum cleaner motors by 45% compared to the conventional motor design. The motor is a core component of any household vacuum cleaner unit. The motor directly affects the vacuum cleaner's suction force and total weight. We developed a motor that weighs approximately 45% less and has an external size of approximately 85% of the conventional vacuum motor. This new motor design created a significant contribution to reducing the weight and size of vacuum cleaner units.
