Faster construction layout

Digital solutions for simpler, more accurate layout

Help speed up your construction layout with Hilti's user-friendly solutions designed with workers in mind. Hilti combines intuitive software with rugged, tablet-controlled tools that help close the gap between your design and field teams, making layout of our pre-cast solutions like CP 680 and KCM, faster, more accurate and easier to document than ever.

What sets our Digital Layout Solutions apart?

Laying out formwork

With the PLT 400, just one person is required to carry out faster, more accurate formwork layout. Reviewing work is also simpler, helping to reduce the risk of errors and costly rework.

Transferring heights

Make critical tasks such as shooting elevations simpler and more accurate with the height transfer functionality of the PLT 400 advanced layout system.

Quality Control

Help streamline quality control tasks with the Hilti PLT 400 layout system. Just upload the latest plans to the PLC tablet controller for up-to-date project progress so that you can review work carried out. 

Control point set-up

Create fixed and accessible site control and benefit from more consistent and accurate layout with the PLT 400 layout system. Use the measure and save functionality to create and maintain control points throughout your project. 

Anchor bolt layout

Help simplify your anchor bolt layout: use smart layout to record anchor bolt locations without the need to create points ahead of time. Document layout using Hilti PROFIS Layout Office and benefit from simpler deviation reporting.

Streamlined design

Bring digital performance to the office

Moving to digital layout can be daunting, but with Hilti’s easy-to-learn PROFIS Layout Office design software, preparing BIM data for the field is easier than ever. Simplify design workflows, reduce the amount of point preparation required and have staff with no specialist engineering knowledge learn to import the latest architect or designer files from the BIM model, make changes if needed and then export the files to our PLC tablet.


Enjoy intuitive tablet-guided layout in the field

Out in the field, crew members can upload the relevant files from the BIM model directly onto the rugged PLC tablet and begin guided layout with the PLT 400 total station. Our advanced layout tool is powered by our intuitive Hilti Construction Layout software which helps make a huge range of layout tasks – from formwork, anchor points, slopes, interior wall partitions and many more – faster and more accurate than ever before.


Make quicker, more precise layout a one-person job

Using traditional methods, two experienced workers can layout up to 150 points per day. With the PLT 400 that can jump up to 500 points with just one worker. With self-levelling and auto stationing features, even inexperienced workers can lay out 2D and 3D positions quicker, sending more accurate data to the tablet and helping you prevent costly mistakes. With both mid-range and long-range solutions available, Hilti total stations enable faster and more accurate layout, whatever your site condition.
