The Germans were way ahead of everybody in electric welding technology during this time. It is possible they already had X-ray testing methods at the time, but in any case, they relied on the craftsmanship skills of the welders who were highly trained and reliable.

Each finished boat was tested in a pressure chamber to at least its maximum safe depth which is 2/3 of crush depth, i.e. if crush depth is 300 m then maximum safe depth is 200 m. (design depth would be 120 m).
