Samsung Electronics will collaborate with Seoul National University to develop key components that will be applied to future home appliances. Through the partnership, Samsung will secure technologies for improved energy efficiency, low vibration, low noise, and enhanced durability of compressors and motors.
Samsung said in a statement on September 10 that it signed a memorandum of understanding with Seoul National University to jointly develop next-generation technologies for compressors and motors. They will form a research team specialized in various fields such as electronic engineering, mechanical engineering and material engineering.
Compressors and motors are key parts of white goods mainly used in the kitchen and the laundry. The durability and performance of the moving parts are key marketing points promoted by many global consumer electronics makers. To attract more customers, Samsung started providing lifetime warranty services for appliances that house digital inverter compressors and motors in 2021. Samsung said it will strengthen the quality of key components to provide differentiated services to consumers.
