Kuka owner Midea unveils new household robot

Midea Group, a massive manufacturing company known mainly for making household appliances like washing machines and for being the parent of industrial robot giant Kuka, has unveiled a new product in the household robotics space.

The Chinese company has released details of its next-generation robot vacuum cleaner, the S8+ auto-dust-collection robot, made by Midea Robozone Technology, a subsidiary of Midea Group. The S8+ joins Midea’s intelligent cleaning product line that provides optimum performance covering all household cleaning solutions.

Alice Shaw, vice president, sales and marketing management at Robozone, says: “As an innovator in smart cleaning technology, I’m proud to say that Midea is reaffirming its leadership in the smart home industry by revolutionizing high-performance robot vacuum cleaners to provide more convenience to our global customers.

“The S8+ is Midea’s premium model, representing a significant shift in modern home life where consumers seek intelligent cleaning assistants to meet the needs of today’s fast-paced life.”

As the world’s largest producer of major appliances, Midea continues to developing smart cleaning solutions and products with world-class cleaning technology and driving deeper success for our home cleaning and caring business overall.

According to a ResearchandMarkets’ report, the global household vacuum cleaner market was valued at $43,104.6 million in 2021 and is projected to reach $58,439.6 million by 2028.

In May of this year, Robozone launched its M7 Pro robotic vacuum cleaner internationally, including in Russia, Germany, France and Poland. The company is now adding to that momentum and plans to release a second new product, S8+ auto-dust-collection robot.

One of the biggest improvements of the Midea S8+ is its automatic dust collection station, which only needs to be changed once every 30 days, ensuring the space where the unit is deployed remains free from unpleasant odors, automatically collecting dust when charged.

Robozone team stays true to Midea’s core philosophy of “practical innovation” to inform every feature and product-related decision. Robozone has leveraged cutting-edge technology and shaped its core competitiveness in next-generation smart home appliances, focusing on smart home cleaning technology and the ecosystem.

Moving forward, Robozone will be dedicated to developing various cleaning solutions for over 100 global markets and by offering a diversified product portfolio, aims to become the go-to home cleaning solutions specialist.
