PLANO, TEXAS – January 26, 2023 - Hilti North America, a global leader providing innovative tools, technology, software, and services to the commercial construction industry, introduces the PLT 400, a digital layout tool designed to help jobsite layout crews be more productive.
With continued labor shortages and jobsite restrictions, single operator tools like the PLT 400 are essential. Hilti’s PLT tool technology allows layout to be completed more quickly, efficiently, and accurately. This tool also brings improved accuracy, faster layout speed, advanced prism tracking, auto calibration, and requires minimal training to use. The benefits of improved technology, fewer labor hours, and faster layout all combine to create a cost-saving and productivity increasing solution for jobsites.
The PLT 400 can take BIM (Building Information Modeling) designed digital plans and lay them out, without the time consuming need to create points on the plans first. It can also be used during the building process to help keep your BIM model up to date, contributing to a highly efficient end-to-end workflow. Hilti’s digital construction software is also compatible with Revit, AutoCAD, and other professional layout platforms.
