Schweißtechnische Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt Halle GmbH: SLV Halle – We make connections

The Schweißtechnische Lehr- und Ver­suchsanstalt Halle (Welding Training and Research Institute Halle, or SLV Halle) has been in existence for almost 80 years. While its activities in­­itially focused mainly on training welders, the institute has increasingly be­­come an innovative service provider over the last few decades. These services in­­clude the practical and theoretical train­­ing – including a large number of confe­­­rences, publicly subsidized and in­­dus­tri­­al re­­search, materials and component testing, company certification and the mo­­ni­­toring of welding-based production. The main sectors involved here are steel construction, construction of rail vehicles, pipeline construction and plant and mechanical engineering. The professio­n­­al competence of the SLV Halle ranges from welding technology and thermal cutting through to metallur­­gy, testing tech­­nology, auto­­ma­tion and the development of welding software. In these fields, the institute has established con­tacts over a long period with universities and other institutes of higher educa­­tion, various na­­tio­na­l and internatio­­nal professional bodies and a large num­­ber of connections with other European coun­­tries. The SLV’s clients benefit in no small way from a structured and res­­pon­­sive company structure, the latest tech­­nology and an interdisciplinary range of services.
