LAUNCHES – Artificial intelligence on white line
LG and Panasonic present innovations in refrigerators and washing machines this semester.
The white line category, supported by the good performance in 2019, mainly of premium products, is added by new washing machines and refrigerators this semester. The machines, with artificial intelligence, that identifies the right amount of soap and fabric softener, have front opening and functions that make clothes cleaner, besides saving water and energy.
Panasonic has consolidated itself in the world market with important categories of home appliances. “We are managing to maintain the growth strategy in different segments, which makes us optimistic. We continue to invest in the expansion plan, looking at the needs of consumers by bringing innovations to the market, helping them to lead a more practical and sustainable life. The pace of development is positive, and we expect steady progress in the years to come,” says Sergei Epof, Panasonic’s chief executive.
In March, it will present three washing machines to the market, classified as the best washing in its category. They have the Vanish Program to enhance the use of the stain remover, guaranteeing 20% more performance. The NA-F140B6W model, weighing 14 kg, has the Cyclone system, which does not require a central stirrer, Panasonic reuse functions (warns the time of draining for the consumer to store the water), and active foam (the soap dissolves before contacting clothes, avoiding residues or stains).
The water reuse function is also present in the 16 kg NA-F160B6W model, which has the AG antibacterial system, which eliminates 99.9% of bacteria proliferation. Another model, the NA-F170P6T, 17 kg, has the antibacterial system, titanium body and digital panel with white LED lighting, in which it is possible to identify the time left for the washing to finish, as well as customize and save a favorite show.
In April, Panasonic launches the BB71 Black Glass and BB71 Steel refrigerators, both with a capacity of 480 liters and Inverter technology, which saves more than 41% of energy. They have a Fresh Freezer compartment for storing food and drinks at ideal temperatures, and a drawer that enhances the nutrients in food, among other features.

The brand’s washers have artificial intelligence. The LG ThinQ®, with front opening, comes with an Artificial Intelligent Direct ™ Drive (AI DD ™) engine, which detects volume and weight of clothes, identifies fabrics and combines movements, protecting 15% more clothes. It has the functionality that calculates the exact dose of liquid soap and softener for each load size. It also connects to Amazon’s Alexia through the ThinQ app, alerts the user when the soap is running out and enables Amazon Dash Replenishment for purchase over the internet.
The washer’s AI DD ™ engine is compatible with LG Proactive Customer Care, a customer service solution that uses AI to alert the user of possible problems and anticipate repairs. “The new generation of connected refrigerators from LG and Wash and Dry with AI offer the highest technology to make everyday life more practical and economical. These launches of white goods reinforce our intention to facilitate and simplify the lives of LG consumers with an increasingly technological portfolio”, explains Kati Dias, white goods executive at LG Electronics do Brasil.
