It all started with a problem – the use of conventional motors in a cordless vacuum was not practical as cutting the cords meant downsizing suction power. In 1999, Dyson engineers took it upon themselves to think differently and four years later pioneered our revolutionary Dyson Hyperdymium™ motor – the X020.
The first generation of the Dyson Hyperdymium™ motor – X020 was manufactured in Singapore in 2004. This led to the eventual inception of Dyson’s first manufacturing centre in Singapore in 2012 and another facility set up in the Philippines in 2016.
Made in Singapore
When the Singapore Advanced Manufacturing (SAM) first opened its door, there were only two production lines. In just eight years, we now have eight lines, producing one motor every two seconds.
The Philippines Advanced Manufacturing (PAM) centre has also grown significantly over the years, going from one to six manufacturing lines with a production capability of 270,000 Motors daily.
Our state-of-the-art facilities, which include 300 autonomous robots, ensure the lines run at lightning speed, which is carefully overseen by our engineers and operators. Each robot is capable repeating movements hundreds of times per minute, with pinpoint accuracy – a feat that no human hand can ever achieve.
Over the years, our production lines have been setting the benchmark for Dyson Hyperdymium™ motor production, making impressive strides and reaching one milestone to another.
