2 years technical degree professional project !
My project began by an observation. I’ve noticed that mechanics in garage need about thirty minutes cleaning a car with a vacuum cleaner. It’s a long and difficult job because the mechanic is twisted in the car.
Also, I realized that I used aspiration and blower at the same time, the blower lifts the dirt off the carpet and the dirt is sucked. So I designed a vacuum cleaner with 2 associated technologies and a new design.
Why to do power race, if we can change the manner of cleaning ?
« Tornado »
A tornado is a violently rotating column of air that is in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cumulonimbus cloud or, in rare cases, the base of a cumulus cloud. They are often referred to as twisters or cyclones, although the word cyclone is used in meteorology, in a wider sense, to name any closed low pressure circulation. In a tornado there are two opposite air flows like in my device.
For who ?
Automotive professionals : dealers, garage owners, body & paint workers, cleaning persons. But why to design a new vacuum cleaner for automotive workers ?
2 reasons are sufficient : reduce the time & facilitate the long and difficult job !
How & Where can we improve working conditions ?
Currently, a lot of parameters can be to improve …
No particular innovation for several years
80 dBA max noise (standard)
> 500 lux (standard)
Around 5 h per day (averaged in bad position)
The specification !
Vaccum cleaner combining aspiration & blower
Adapted to automotive workers needs : solid, reliable, simple with a long wire & hose
A large tank volume & low-maintenance measuring
Use as little as possible the additional component parts to decrease the price & the weight
Design & Ergonomic worked for an intuitive to use
