Not all motors are made equal
Engineers come together across the UK, Singapore, Philippines and Malaysia to constantly iterate, which helps to unlock new categories for Dyson. Our motors are a core technology for Dyson and help us deliver technology superiority. Few companies develop their own motors and have to buy off-the-shelf motors. Dyson digital motors run at 135,000rpm, four times the speed of any other motor to generate greater power from smaller, more efficient motors.
Our latest motor, the Dyson Gen5 motor, is smaller, faster and more powerful than its predecessor, spinning at up at 135,000rpm – up to nine times faster than a Formula One engine. This power enables the Gen5detect™ vacuum to have the most powerful suction of any Dyson cordless machine. Engineers built this motor around a shorter shaft, and combined multiple parts into one, allowing for a more compact format, wrapped in a single piece of precision moulded frame to ensure maximum power efficiency.
