Mig & Tig Welding Services Near St. Louis MO
When custom parts require welding, Schantz has the capability of using either MIG welding services or TIG welding services to complete a welded assembly. Schantz is capable of working with parts up to 6’ long and with a variety of materials, including (but not limited to):
- Carbon Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Chromoly Steel
While both MIG (Metal Inert Gas) and TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) are related methods of arc welding, the processes vary, resulting in different techniques to join the base metal.
For example, MIG welding services use a continuous electrically charged consumable wire applied to the weld joint as its filler material. Meanwhile, TIG welding utilizes a non-consumable tungsten electrode that may or may not need filler material depending on the application. MIG welding services are typically faster and better for thicker material, while TIG welding services are usually used where strength and aesthetics are most important.
Schantz most commonly welds aftermarket suspension components where either of these applications can be used. Schantz can recommend which process will be better suited for your parts and assemblies.

Mig Welding Services
MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding joins two base materials together using a continuous solid wire electrode fed through a welding gun. MIG welding has several advantages, such as being the best for thicker material and faster with lower heat inputs. Commonly used in the automotive industry, MIG welding provides a strong weld bond that can withstand large forces allowing versatility and strength. Schantz Machine & Fabrication offers MIG welding service for precision racing component parts to exact specifications and requirements, specializing in:
- Engine and Suspension Parts
- Aftermarket Sub Assemblies and Finished Products
- Various OEM Parts and Assemblies
Tig Welding Services
Schantz Machine & Fabrication is capable of TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding, which uses a tungsten electrode to melt the base metal together. TIG welding is most suitable for welding very thin materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, and titanium, and is the most popular form of welding when high-quality clean, very strong welds are required. Industries that use TIG welding include those where nonferrous metals are most commonly used on things like piping systems, vehicles, motorcycles, and tubing systems. Schantz offers TIG welding service for:
- Swing arms, tie rods, and A-arms for motorcycle and UTV/ATV
- Control arms and assemblies for various circle track applications
- Complete tube chassis and chassis sub-assemblies
