Plano, Texas, July 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Hilti North America, a commercial construction-focused technology, software and services company, has launched a suite of new tools, systems and accessories. The new lineup includes the PMD 200 jobsite layout solution, which shifts the boundary for productivity and allows faster work, with potentially less employees. Simultaneously, Hilti is bringing forth new solutions that help contractors further enable digital transformation and expand cordless flexibility on jobsites with the release of a "smart" diamond coring system, and an adaptable metalworking tool.

The PMD 200 is an addition to Hilti's layout tool portfolio, designed specifically for North American interior jobsite layout applications. Powered by Hilti's 12V batteries, the tool bridges traditional and digital solutions and represents a powerful alternative to the time and labor-intensive methods used for layout today. It was designed to give customers the accuracy and productivity benefits of a digital solution without the added complexity of having to manage AutoCad data or change existing workflows. This new solution is easier to understand and therefore a virtually non-intrusive alternative to traditional jobsite layout methods.
Versatile, connected, and smart diamond core drilling system
The diamond core drilling system DD 150-U now has enhancements to make diamond coring even easier.
