Celebrating Singapore National Day with 100,000,000 Dyson Hyperdymium Motors and counting

As national day celebrations take flight, we shine a light on Dyson’s Hyperdymium Motor which is being developed right here in Singapore.

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.

100 million milestone

Now, our manufacturing facilities have achieved yet another remarkable milestone with our 100 millionth Dyson Hyperdymium motor produced.

“We’ve come a long way since the first generation of Dyson Hyperdymium motor. Teams have tirelessly power through with grit and determination to ensure we are different, authentic and pioneering,” says Peter Teo, General Manager of SAM.

This impressive technology has become the heart of our machines, powering our popular cord-free vacuum cleaners, the Airblade hand dryers, the iconic Supersonic hair dryer as well as the Airwrap styler.

This Dyson Hyperdymium motor spins at up to 125,000 revolutions per minute. It is smaller, lighter, cleaner and more power-efficient than conventional electric motors.
