Goals and idea

The laboratory serves to train students in the basics of welding technology. All common welding processes are demonstrated and the students can put the theoretical knowledge into practice on the equipment. The cooperation with the materials laboratory allows the examination of welding results. This also results in challenging topics for Master and Bachelor theses.
