We, the Schweißtechnische Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt Munich, are the biggest instiute for welding technology and related processes in the state of Bavaria and since over 60 years one of the eight branches of the globally active GSI group.
You profit from our bundled competencies as well as from the synergies resulting from intragroup knowlwdge exchange in the fields of welding technology and thermal spraying. The know-how transfer and the practical implementation extend from concepts and strategies in the education and training over decision making and acting bases up to innovative procedures in material technology. Inspections and approvals according to national and international standards are handled globally and goal oriented.
Our portfolio includes services in the following fields of competency:
We qualify and certify welders for manual welding procedures, setters for mechanical welding facilities, expert and managing personnel for tasks concerning welding technologies (international welding engineer, international welding technician, international welding specialist), in the field of material testing as well as thermal spraying. Individual courses complement our profile.
Quality and economic efficiency are important goals of every production. We help you with the planning over the manufacturing up to the approval of welded parts. We also support you with the selection of suppliers or your operational supplier management.
The auditing accoring to different welding guidelines and/or specifications marks the completion of the implementation of regulations.
We examine your welding seams and materials destructive, non-destructive, metallographically, chemical, mechanical-technological, determine and evaluate the quality of products and give guidance to a better processing as well as damage prevetion and analyze causes of damage. Our testing laboratories are certified according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025
Our focus lies on the new and further development of procedures and devices on manifold welding technology areas on behalf of companies and public authorities. That includes advice on the selection of a technolgy and its introduction, feasibility studies, optimization of welding parameters, process boundary conditions, the supervision of components as well as the the selection of materials, compontent testings, sample parts, zero series, documenting of experiments or support with series production.
