MIG & TIG Welding Services

Over the past 30 years, Pendarvis Manufacturing has been providing a broad range of industries welding services in Southern California, including Anaheim, Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. Pendarvis Manufacturing is one of the most experienced MIG and TIG welders in the Southern California area. We have experience in TIG welding for aluminum and stainless steel as well as in aluminum and stainless steel MIG welding.

With six MIG and TIG welding stations, Pendarvis Manufacturing has one the highest in-house capabilities out of all Welders in Los Angeles area for; aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, cast iron, and bronze welding.

MIG Welding Services

MIG welding was initially implemented in the 1940s, specifically for welding non-ferrous metals such as aluminum. MIG welding soon became used for steel as well, since it permitted a shorter welding time compared to other traditional welding methods. Steel MIG welding became even more commonplace when the use of semi-inert gases (such as carbon dioxide) was implemented. Additional improvements in the MIG welding process through the 1950s and 1960s resulted in MIG welding becoming one of the most popular, heavily used industrial manufacturing processes.

TIG Welding Services

TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding is an arc welding method involving electric arc heat being maintained in between a fixed, non-consumable tungsten electrode and the specific component being welded. The area that is being welded is sheltered from contamination (including atmospheric corruption) by a shielding gas (such as an inert gas); in most cases, a filler material is also used. The power supply used for TIG welding is a constant current type, which is conducted across the arc via a column of metal vapors and highly ionized gas, commonly referred to as plasma.

TIG welding has a variety of applications, including being used to weld metals such as copper, magnesium and aluminum alloys, along with welding thin sections of stainless steel.
