Heerbrugg, Switzerland — Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, launched its new Leica iCON iCT30 construction layout tool to bring more efficiency to the construction industry. The iCON iCT30 construction layout tool, combined with the construction-tailored Leica iCON build field software, is an easy-to-use and affordable solution to increase productivity by minimizing labor time and mistakes, while increasing accuracy and speed, the company said. The new iCT30 is an entry-level construction layout tool built for one-person layout tasks in construction.

“The Leica iCON iCT30 is designed for users moving for the first-time from conventional manual layout methods to automated workflows. The hardware and software are easy to use,” said Shane O’Regan, product expert Leica iCON at Leica Geosystems. “The new construction layout tool is part of the iCON portfolio for Building Construction and is integrated into iCON build construction-tailored software offering streamlined use of fully rendered models in .IFC format.”

Simpler telescope aiming, reliable accuracy and one-person operation are some of the features that distinguish the iCT30 construction layout tool. The iCT30 is a fast and robust tool that provides significant up-time by assisting operators to deal with difficult site conditions, such as reflections, interruptions of line of sight, or congestions. With the iCT30, operators will layout more points per day, speeding up the construction process.
