As part of the 75th anniversary of the Institute for Welding and Joining Technology, we invite partners and friends of the industry to our anniversary colloquium in the auditorium of the RWTH. Following the presentations, there will be an opportunity for a more in-depth exchange of ideas at our evening event in Forum M in Aachen's city centre.

Friday, April 26, 2024, 9am


Joining is one of the essential technologies for technical progress and thus for the development of mankind.

Joining objects and materials to improve the properties of devices and machines is often a challenge.
It is surprising that it was only in the last century that engineers began to study this technology at university level.

In this sense, we are particularly pleased that RWTH Aachen University established a chair for welding technology very early on, 75 years ago to be precise.
We would like to celebrate this anniversary in an appropriate way and cordially invite you to join us.

With many exciting presentations from our long-standing partners, friends and former employees, we would like to show the past and present of joining technology, but also that there is still much to be done in the future.

As with any good event, the lively and friendly exchange between the participants is a must, which is why we are also looking forward to the discussions at our evening event after the presentations.
