The dumbwaiter lifts are generally the elevators that are used to transport smaller goods between the floors of a building. Dumbwaiter lifts were introduced to the market back in 1887 by Cannon, the inventor of these tiny lifts that carry objects (mostly food) rather than people. These small freight elevators are designed in such a way that a small doorway is made on each floor of the building from where the objects can be sent or received. A typical dumbwaiter lift consists of a movable frame, ropes and pulleys, guided rails, and a cart that is used to carry goods.

These lifts operate on the similar operating principle that of passenger lifts. The movable frame in a shaft rides through the guiding rails that are connected to a pair of ropes and pulleys which operate using the electric or hydraulic power generated by a motor or a pump. They have normally downsized elevators which make it easier to fetch small objects across the floors of a building.

Dumbwaiter lifts are available in variable sizes and load handling capacities. These are normally employed in hospitals, hotels, schools, offices and some private multistory residences. The need for dumbwaiter lifts is gradually increasing as it accounts to save time and efforts from moving things from one floor to another.

These small service lifts are generally either manually operated or power driven. There is a lot of scope in improvising the operations of dumbwaiter lifts. Smart systems can be employed to maintain precision in operation of these lifts. Load carrying capacities can be increased and making the lifts use less power can actually drive the market to a different extent.
