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

Hilti advanced layout solution (total station) 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 partitions 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 with PLT 300 - a one person layout tool

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 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 – that’s the PLC 400 tablet paired with PLT 300 total station – this number jumps to 500 points with just a single worker. Take a look at the video below to see this productivity boost in action, or contact your account manager today to arrange a demo.



Technology designed for everyone in construction

Advanced layout tools extend the speed and accuracy of digitized construction to the jobsite professionals responsible for making those CAD/BIM files a reality.  Hilti has designed the latest layout tools for everyone in construction – the PLT 300 total station offer a quick-to-learn alternative to the slow and error-prone combination of chalk line and measuring tape. When used with a PLC 400 tablet, productivity and accuracy benefit from a seamless digital data transfer from the design team to the jobsite team.  Watch the video below to see how user-friendly technology is changing onsite layout work for the better.
