Cre8tek has done the mechanical design of the remote controlled vacuum cleaner handle for Nilfisk Advance. A collaboration between Cre8tek, Nilfisk’s R&D department in Denmark and their manufacturing sites in Sozhou, China. The result was 3 handles to be used in different variants of the highend consumer series “Elite”.
Cre8tek assisted Nilfisk Advance in the development of the VL500 series professionel vacuum cleaners. The Mechanical Engineering support for the project included a kick-off period with two of our engineers present locally at Nilfisk Advance in Denmark. After the kick-off period the project execution took place from our Shenzhen office where our engineers was a part of the global development team which included the Nilfisk Advance development team in Denmark as well as the Nilfisk Advance Manufacturing- and Quality team in China.
The VU500 from Nilfisk Advance is a serie of carpet vacuum cleaners primarily for the American market. Cre8tek has delivered mechanical engineering of the brush- and intake unit of the machines. Cre8tek has also delivered fully functional prototype in production true materials and with surface treatment for the correct apperance. The prototypes were suiteable for function- and reliability testing as well as early marketing.
