How to simplify your jobsite layout

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

Robotic total stations like the PLT 300 layout tool have helped turned the slow and error-prone two-person task of laying out formwork, anchor points, slopes or interior wall partitions into a routine job for a single worker.  Until now, the main drawback of these tools has been their complexity - they depend on data and point preparation before heading onsite.

Save time

Waste no more time preparing data

The PLC 400 tablet with Hilti Construction Layout software is easy to use, and is specifically designed for use with the PLT 300 Layout tool and can load DWG and DXF files directly from a BIM model. With Hilti's advanced layout solutions, no prior data preparation is needed, saving you substantial 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 Hilti's advanced layout solutions, 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.
