prepared to repair / repairable vacuum cleaner

prepared to repair
prepared to repair

This new type of a vacuum cleaner can achieve a long service life due to the possibility of a very simple repair. Moreover, it is embedded in a sustainable product life cycle as well as a customer-oriented concept. Primarily the design was about an understandable construction of the vacuum cleaner, as well as a good accessibility and an easy replacement of the components. By these criteria, a modular system resulted which understands the housing not as a closed outer shell, but more as a supporting element, which thus enables an easy access to the hosted parts.
