Dyson’s latest technology sits on a ball for smooth steering

DC38 is Dyson’s first lightweight cylinder vacuum…

DC38 is Dyson’s first lightweight cylinder vacuum with Ball™ technology for stable manoeuvring around the tightest corners.  Engineered specifically for smaller homes, DC38 is miniature, while maintaining the performance of a large vacuum. 
Traditional cylinder cleaners are often awkward to steer and can topple. Some drift about on casters and others use wheels that over steer. They lurch into furniture and veer off at tangents and more force is needed to keep them on track. And reliant on bags or filters – they can lose performance too.
Sitting on a ball, DC38 is lightweight, manoeuvrable and has a low centre of gravity for negotiating tight turns and getting around furniture.  Coupled with a new central steering system, the machine is the lightest to pull, without snagging on corners or the carpet pile.  And it is equipped with Dyson’s Radial Root Cyclone™ technology that captures more microscopic dust than any other cyclone.

James Dyson said: “We thrive on engineering challenges, and our first Dyson Ball™ cylinder posed quite a few.  Cramming over 100 components into the ball itself. Compressing the airways, concealing the motor and ducting and devising a new steering mechanism. We’ve miniaturised the technology to deliver our most manoeuvrable cylinder vacuum yet.”
The Technology
Radial Root Cyclone™ technology: Captures more dirt than any other
Other vacuum cleaners still rely on bags or filters to trap all the dust, losing suction over time. Dyson has been continually refining vacuum cyclone technology since inventing it more than 20 years ago. Every angle of each airway is honed to ensure microscopic particles – as tiny as 0.5 microns or 1/5,000th of a pin head – are spun out of the airflow and captured in the bin.  
Acoustical engineering

With airflow inside the inner cyclones generating in excess of 100,000 G – Dyson’s acoustics team was challenged to minimise the sound and vibration of high speed air and dirt. Testing in Dyson’s semi-anechoic chamber resulted in a redesigned motor casing and vents to fine tune airflow.
