How Hilti detection systems are used around the world

At Hilti, we contribute to some of the most awe-inspiring feats of engineering around the world. It is, however, not just our tools which play their part. An in-house corps of engineers and specialists provide complex jobsites with a wealth of problem-solving know-how. 

If you are dealing with a tricky jobsite, a quick call to your Hilti Account Manager could save you from delays or having to hire a specialist sub-contractor.

The two real-world examples below are case-in-point: on a live, large jobsite, the contractor needed to map out the embedded objects within concrete. Calling the local Hilti team instead of a sub-contractor kept the job running. Although completely different in scale, location and construction system, both case studies show how a single, powerful tool can prevent simple errors from holding up the entire project.

After accidentally drilling dangerously close to embedded tendons, the PS 1000 X-Scan detection system was used to non-destructively test their structural integrity.
