GSI SLV welding trainer

SLV Halle GmbH was the world’s first company to launch a computer-aided welding training simulator at the Schweißen und Schneiden (welding and cutting) trade fair in 2005. The GSI SLV welding trainer was developed by SLV Halle GmbH to train welders outside the traditional welding cabin. Apart from further development, SLV Halle independently manufactures and markets the training system. SLV Halle has accumulated business contacts in Germany and across the world in selling the GSI SLV welding trainer system. The company’s international customers are especially concentrated in China, Indonesia and Malaysia. The welding trainer has also been launched in Austria, Mongolia, Serbia, Tunisia, Poland, Russia, Latvia, Kazakhstan

Professional and further training

Professional and further training according to German standards and guidelines enjoys an excellent reputation across the world. This includes training based on the guidelines set forth by the German Welding Society DVS (Deutscher Verband für Schweißen und verwandte Verfahren e.V.). SLV Halle has been providing training programmes according to DVS guidelines inside and outside Germany for years. DVS master welder qualification training according to DVS guideline 1157 et seq. is especially highly sought-after. We have held these training programmes in countries as far afield as Mongolia, where qualified master welders were trained and examined in September 2012. SLV Halle holds regular master welder training programmes in China, where we hold these training programmes together with our Chinese partners almost annually.

We maintain a long-standing partnership with the Welding Institute of Cuba, where SLV Halle was involved in setting up a welder training centre, and has held a bilateral relationship with this partner ever since. The Institute’s staff has undergone many training programmes at SLV Halle. Our staff members from SLV Halle have also held local courses in non-destructive training and welding courses in Cuba.

International services from SLV Halle also include company training programmes often requested by companies based outside Germany. Russia, South Africa, India and Hungary are a few of the countries that have seen experts from SLV Halle train welding staff.


Services from SLV Halle also include auditing companies outside Germany in railway vehicle and metal construction, a service in regular demand at companies from outside Germany. Our experts from Quality Management also go to companies in Asia and Eastern Europe.
