The next generation of the Hilti SafeSet system helps eliminate steps during anchor installation

Make the toughest of jobsite conditions work for you. Experience the perks of the first and fully cordless anchor setting system that helps ensure faster and more reliable anchor installation every time. 

  • Save up to 60% on installation time by eliminating hole cleaning with the VC 140 “vac pack” and a Hilti Hollow Drill Bit—the only system designed to work in damp concrete without load reduction.
  • Take the guess work out of proper mortar injection with the HDE 500 Smart Dispenser that communicates the proper dispensing dosage and lets you know when a replacement is needed.

In other words, the SafeSet system is a faster, easier and safer way to set anchors.

Why choose Hilti SafeSet?

Save time icon

Save time

Conventional adhesive anchor installation is performed with six manual operations, but the SafeSet system streamlines the process by cleaning holes as you drill them. With SafeSet, your installation time is reduced by at least 36 minutes per hour—up to 60%.

No cleaning Improved performance Increased safety icon

Improve performance

Up to 70% of performance is lost when holes are not properly cleaned. Harmful lingering silica dust weakens the hold, which considerably reduces the capacity of your anchors and has the potential to invade the lungs. Thanks to SafeSet's clean-as-you-go design, concrete is drilled and anchors are installed virtually dust-free.

Cost efficient save money icon

Save money

The new HDE 500 Smart was developed to bring precision to mortar injection – that means proper mixing, initial discard and dosing. All of these new functionalities result in less mortar waste – up to 20% savings on expensive injectable mortars. 

All-weather all in one icon


The Hilti SafeSet system is the only dust-removal system on the market designed to work in damp concrete without load reduction to bond capacity, eliminating the need for re-design when tough jobsite conditions arise. Weather conditions that previously had the power to impact your productivity suddenly become afterthoughts.
