Our advanced layout solutions are easy-to-use and increase productivity on the jobsite

Hilti advanced layout solution in use at the jobsite

Robotic total stations such as the PLT 300 layout tool have turned the slow and error-prone two-person task of laying out formwork, anchor points, slopes or interior finishing designs into a routine job for a single worker. Until now, the main drawback of these tools, has been their complexity and lack of connectivity. They require some training and experience to operate and depend on input which often has to be simplified and adapted. 

Save time

Waste no more time preparing data

This is where our advanced layout solutions come in. Easy to use, the PLC 400 tablet with Hilti construction layout software is specifically designed for use with the PLT 300 layout tool and can load DWG and DXF files directly from a BIM model. This means no advance file prep is needed, saving substantial admin time  in the office.

Layout more points per day

And what about saving time when in the field? Using traditional methods, two trained workers can layout up to 100 points per day. With our advanced layout solution, consisting of the PLT 300 layout tool and the PLC 400 tablet with Hilti construction layout software, this number jumps to 500 points with just a single worker. Take a look at the video below to see our solution in action, or contact your account manager today to arrange a demo.

Technology designed for everyone in construction

Our Hilti construction layout software, with the PLC 400 tablet is part of our comprehensive range of measuring systems.
Our advanced layout solutions vary between the range of simpler, pocket-sized laser range meters and the more sophisticated robotic total stations. Our PLT 300 offers the best of both worlds: the speed and ease of a laser range meter combined with the automation and accuracy of a total station. Watch the video below to see how technology is changing on-site layout work.
