Product Features

We reconsidered the materials used in the body and components to make them as lightweight as possible. Using Panasonic’s original and advanced material PPFRP, were able to develop a vacuum cleaner with a lighter and stronger body than ever before, and that’s easy even for elderly people to use.

The MC-PA330GX (W264×D383×H219mm) is a conventional Panasonic product for which we cut the main unit's weight by approximately half (compared to the Panasonic PA series), making it approx. 4.1kg. For the new J Concept product MC-JP520G(W195×D383×H191mm), approx. 48% was cut by changing resin parts and making it smaller (by using PPFRP). Approx. 56% was cut by using a new lightweight motor (size reduced, aluminum used). Approx. 48% was cut by using a new layout (components made smaller and lighter). With these changes, the new product is approx. 2.0kg, an approx. 50% reduction of the total weight.
