Zhi-Gang XU, Wei-Dong SHEN, Jing-Li LI, De-Yu YANG


The development trend of the automatic washing machine is proposed in this paper, totally 3151 copies of patents are studied, with related to the washing machine worldwide. The potential development radar chart is drawn. Nine evolution routes out of eight development patterns are summarized, and six kinds of design schemes are suggested. Finally, an electromagnetic washing machine is conceptualized, the prototype washer can be developed based on the model.
