Precision Metal Fabrication for Custom Welded Parts

MIG & TIG Welding Services

When custom parts require welding, Schantz has the capability of using either MIG or TIG style disciplines 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
  • Aluminum
  • Titanium

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 style welding uses a continuous electrically charged consumable wire applied into the weld joint as its filler material. TIG has a non-consumable tungsten electrode that may or may not need filler material depending on the application. MIG welding is typically faster and better for thicker material, while TIG is 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) style 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 Custom Fabrication offers MIG welding 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 Custom Fabrication is capable of TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) style 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 performs TIG welding on:

  • 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
