Abstract/Artist Statement

Current cabinet installation procedures typically require two operators. The first holds the cabinet at the right height and position while the second fastens the cabinet to the wall. The first operator is at risk of injury because they must hold a heavy item in a strict position for extended periods of time. In this project, a scissor lift device with self-leveling capabilities was designed and fabricated. The device meets the objectives of: a small footprint (12” x 30”), fine adjustment (1” lifting and ±0.5° leveling), adequate lifting capabilities (100 lbs), and low weight (~50 lbs). By meeting these objectives, the Lifting and Leveling Cabinet Installation Device facilitates a safer and more efficient cabinet installation procedure.
