Freundeskreis des Instituts für Schweißtechnik an der Technischen Hochschule Aachen e.V.

In November 1960, Professor Henning invited the friends and supporters of the Welding Institute to Aachen. These activities lead to the foundation of Freundeskreis des Instituts für Schweißtechnik der Technischen Hochschule Aachen e.V. in May of 1961. A couple of weeks after, the association had been entered into the Aachen register of associations. As Professor Opitz suggested during the foundation meeting, the main task of the Freundeskreis was to be the support of the institute through the contribution of ideas and suggestions for research.

Today, the Freundeskreis mainly consists of leading companies from the field of welding and steel processing and of former ISF - Welding and Joining Institute staff. At present, approximately 30 companies and 130 personal members are consolidated in the Freundeskreis. They cooperate successfully in finding new ways in the field of welding.

The Freundeskreis is co-editor of the actual information brochure ISF-Direct which is published twice a year.
