LaDeau – Industrial & Aerospace Hinge Manufacturer Serving Alaska
Welcome to LaDeau Manufacturing! When it comes to hinges, industrial and aerospace varieties could be considered the most fascinating since the objectives they must meet in a multitude of venues are sometimes very unique, and always extremely demanding.
Manufacturing industrial and aerospace hinges is our company’s specialty, and we take great pride in supplying these vital components for highly-specialized clients locally, nationally, and across the globe. Original Equipment Manufacturers know and trust the industrial and aerospace hinges that bear our name.
LaDeau’s history is a rich one, backed by 70 years of expertise and uncompromising quality. Our hinges are manufactured in an ISO-Certified environment where the finished products cater to needs ranging from agriculture to space exploration to military endeavors to construction. The hinges you require might be simple or complex – stocked or customized – miniature or heavy-duty – but whatever your requirement, LaDeau Manufacturing can meet any demand for hinge operations on earth, in the atmosphere, and into the darkest reaches of space.
LaDeau’s Aerospace Hinges
A significant portion of our clients are aerospace professionals or distributors who come with exhaustive quality clauses and unyielding demands. Our Mil-Spec hinges and pins – such as MS20257, MS20001, and MS20253 – become ultimately destined for aerospace endeavors. LaDeau’s piano hinges, smaller butt hinges, spring-loaded hinges, and continuous hinges are commonly utilized for aerospace projects.
Our aerospace hinges serve commercial and military applications – from tail assemblies on commercial aircraft to solar-ray panels on satellites, to military helicopter blade components, LaDeau’s aerospace hinges are relied upon to serve those critical operations.
LaDeau’s Industrial Hinges
LaDeau’s industrial hinges are intended as non-consumer hinges due to their niche applications, and must possess extreme strength. These hinges can be in the form of continuous/piano hinges, butt hinges, spring-loaded hinges, and more, which address the critical needs of medical, military, agriculture, marine venues, and more.
LaDeau’s industrial hinges have a reputation for withstanding harsh abuse; but for these hinges, it’s all in a day’s work. One example would include industrial hinges that boast of a 3-hour fire rating. Then, there are industrial hinges embedded in elevated freeway viaducts which reduce the transfer of bending stresses between structural components. Hinge components in radiation-shielding doors in medical facilities and testing labs ensure maximized protection from neutron and gamma radiation – the list could go on and on.
Customized Industrial and Aerospace Hinges
Industrial and aerospace hinges are commonly customized – lengths, widths, hole patterns, forms and other features can all be efficiently modified to suit unique requirements. Thanks to LaDeau’s manufacturing arsenal and the versatility of our proprietary Universal tooling system, our Alaska industrial customers can count on any type of alterations, for any type of hinge, for any type of use.
LaDeau’s Integrity is Unquestionable
LaDeau Manufacturing’s hard-earned success has everything to do with our consumers who are the lifeblood of our company. Four cornerstone components continue to drive our mission and philosophy:
*** Integrity – At LaDeau Manufacturing, we focus on some very critical objectives: 1) manufacture precision hinges 2) offer fair prices 3) maximize the efficiency of production and delivery, without compromising quality and 4) generate honest, transparent relationships with all our consumers.
*** Expertise – During WWII, our company’s founders worked with the Lockheed Corporation, which manufactured a variety of defense aircraft. Today, Lockheed remains one of the most renowned military facilities in the US.
After the war, the aircraft industry was chomping at the bit to optimize production as well as embrace new innovations. The timing was ripe for our founders, whose company emerged from Lockheed Martin as an independent entity, LaDeau Manufacturing.
At that time, LaDeau Manufacturing focused on the production of aircraft hinge assemblies. Today, LaDeau Manufacturing serves national and global interests that cater to marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security needs.
*** Quality – ISO compliance means our Alaska patrons can expect products of the highest caliber. Our production standards parallel our founders’ original commitment to apply stringent MIL-l-45208A standard to all LaDeau parts – military and commercial.
LaDeau Manufacturing is an ISO-9001:2015 certified world-class hinge manufacturer, and we are proud of our more-than-99.8% acceptance rate from our industrial customers. We are also independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.
*** Capabilities – LaDeau’s stringent quality control means every hinge we manufacture offers top-tier strength, alignment, and even-weight distribution. A varied array of material and finish options are available – steel, stainless steel, stamped aluminum, or extruded aluminum – and our primary and secondary processes range from press brake forming, to welding, to plating, and so much more. Also, our professionals within LaDeau’s engineering department are unsurpassed when it comes to talent and insight!
LaDeau doesn’t look at hinge manufacturing as just a business – it, truly, IS our passion!
