Engineering Story

A new era begins.

James Dyson with early Dyson vacuum cleaner

Pioneering radical change.

Frustrated by dust clogging the bag of his vacuum cleaner at home, James Dyson spent five years and 5,127 prototypes inventing the world’s first cyclonic vacuum cleaner. Launched in 1993, the DC01’s revolutionary technology solved the everyday problem of vacuums losing suction. Since that first Dual Cyclone vacuum, Dyson has continued to break new ground – inventing a cordless vacuum cleaner that performs like a full-size vacuum.

¹Suction tested to ASTM F558 at the flexible inlet.

Smaller, faster, lighter.

Creating a powerful cordless vacuum cleaner begins with the motor. Our engineers looked to aerospace engineering to create a motor that delivered the power we needed. The case material is phenolic moulding compound – as used in satellites – for its high resilience and strength-to-weight ratio, to smooth vibrations at ultra-fast motor speeds.

Dyson Cyclone V10™ cordless vacuum cleaner impeller

Increased efficiencies.

A Polyether Ether Ketone (P. E.E.K) and carbon fibre composite, found inside high-intensity pistons, was used for the impeller. To help channel more airflow, we overlapped the impeller’s vanes, creating a larger surface area and improving efficiency.

Dyson Cyclone V10™ cordless vacuum cleaner ceramic shaft

Ceramic centre.

The motor needed a light, strong shaft that was able to cope with speeds at up to 125,000 rpm. Such high speeds create intense heat, causing a steel shaft to develop a curve of 10 to 20 microns – a tiny deviation, but enough to cause disruptive vibrations. So we used ceramic, which is cured at 1,600°C and three times harder than steel, at exactly half the density.

Dyson Cyclone V10™ cordless vacuum cleaner handle and cyclone pack

The boing effect.

To generate the extra power of the Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner digital motor V10, Dyson engineers doubled the number of magnets and stators. When the trigger is released, the motor brakes the rotor to a stop almost instantly and the magnets bounce between the four stator positions. Like a ping-pong ball bouncing on a table, they move a smaller distance each time, creating a sound which our engineers call the ‘boing’.

Airflow through Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner digital motor V10

The Dyson digital motor V10.

The result of all this development was the Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner digital motor V10 – the fastest digital motor we have ever created.

Airflow comparison through Dyson V8™ cordless vacuum cleaner and Dyson Cyclone V10™ cordless vacuum cleaner

Direct development.

This smaller motor allowed our engineers to rotate the cyclone and bin assembly through 90 degrees, into an in-line format. This created a linear airflow path – improving the number of Air Watts of suction at the cleaner head by 20% more than the Dyson V8 Absolute vacuum and allowing a ‘point and shoot’ bin emptying mechanism.

Cleaner air being expelled from Dyson Cyclone V10™ cordless vacuum cleaner

Advanced filtration.

It also allowed us to wrap both the pre- and post-motor filters around the motor as one sealed unit, for improved filtration. We improved the motor housing, adding sound-absorbing material and acoustic baffles, to reduce noise.

Dyson Cyclone V10™ cordless vacuum cleaner battery pack

Long-lasting power from a single battery.

We wanted to get long-lasting suction power into just one battery. Our seven-cell, 525 Watt lithium-ion battery pack has high-capacity which delivers fade-free power using nickel-cobalt-aluminum battery chemistry. Dyson’s intelligent power management system monitors power distribution to deliver fade-free power.
