LaDeau – Industrial & Aerospace Hinge Manufacturer Serving Arkansas
We are LaDeau Manufacturing, and we’re glad you dropped by! It can’t be argued that hinges really do make every aspect of the world continuously operate, every minute of every day of every year. Without hinges, industries all over the world would cease to operate, and many aspects of our daily life would come to a screeching halt. Two hinge types, in particular, play an indispensable role in ensuring that incredibly vital industries of all types operate at maximum capacity – whether it’s off-shore drilling in harsh marine environments, blade components that must seamlessly function on Apache helicopters, or space-satellite solar panels that must open and close at just the right moment – industrial and aerospace hinges are there to make it all happen!
At LaDeau Manufacturing, manufacturing industrial and aerospace hinges and hinge pins is one of the most interesting and innovative components of what we do. This is especially true when we are entrusted with the customization of industrial and aerospace hinges to serve the needs of Original Equipment Manufacturers and specialized industries around the world.
Our industrial and aerospace hinges are manufactured in an ISO-Certified environment where expertise gained from more than 70 years of history in the hinge-fabrication industry qualifies us to be unsurpassed with innovative ideas, skilled technicians, quality control, and efficiency of operations. Whether your needs demand hinges that are simple or complex, stocked or customized, miniature or heavy-duty, LaDeau Manufacturing has precisely what you need!
LaDeau’s quality-control measures for hinge manufacturing means our Arkansas customers can place complete faith in aerospace hinges with the LaDeau name. Our aerospace hinges are fabricated in accordance to very exacting standards, where paramount importance is placed on the hinges’ strength requirements and their ability to withstand harsh demands and merciless environments.
Most of our clients are aerospace professionals or distributors who come to us with sweeping and comprehensive quality clauses and intricate demands. Our Mil-Spec hinges and pins – such as MS20257, MS20001, and MS20253 – become, ultimately, destined for aerospace endeavors, with butt hinges, spring-loaded hinges, and continuous/piano hinges commonly utilized for this niche market. At LaDeau, we establish, document, implement, maintain, and strive to improve the effectiveness of our quality-control measures to meet and exceed expectations.
Industrial hinges are intended as non-consumer hinges due to their highly-specialized applications. Military defense doors, lead-filled radiation doors, nuclear-confinement doors and industrial test cells represent only a sampling of industrial hinge applications. The venues that utilize LaDeau’s industrial hinge include agriculture, nuclear medicine, military & defense, research & development, infrastructure, and more.
Customized Industrial and Aerospace Hinges
Industrial and aerospace hinges are commonly customized – lengths, widths, hole patterns, forms, and other features can all be customized to suit unique requirements. Thanks to LaDeau’s manufacturing arsenal and the versatility of our proprietary Universal tooling system, our Arkansas consumers enjoy minimized fabrication and down-time, pin-point accuracy, and noticeable savings.
Our Integrity is Synonymous with Our Word
Though LaDeau Manufacturing has greatly evolved over the past 7 decades, we adhere to our foundational cornerstones that have contributed to our company’s recognition – locally, nationally, and around the world
*** Integrity – At LaDeau Manufacturing, four main components remain our driving force: 1) manufacture precision products 2) offer fair prices 3) maximize the efficiency of production and delivery without compromising quality and 4) generate strong, enduring relationships with our customers.
*** Expertise – During WWII, our company’s founders worked with the Lockheed Corporation, which manufactured a variety of aircraft, including WWII bombers. Today, Lockheed remains one of the most renowned military facilities in the US.
After the war, the aircraft industry was more than ready for optimizing production as well as embracing new post-war innovations. Our founders took full advantage of the window of opportunity, and emerged as an independent entity, LaDeau Manufacturing.
At that time, the company focused on the production of aircraft hinge assemblies. With time, comes growth and development, and today, LaDeau Manufacturing serves national and global interests that cater to marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial, and security needs in every part of the world.
*** Quality – ISO compliance means our 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. Thus, today, we are able to offer our commercial and industrial customers aerospace quality at industrial prices!
As an ISO-9001:2015 certified world-class hinge manufacturer, we are proud of our more-than-99.8% consumer-acceptance rate. We are also independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.
*** Capabilities – LaDeau’s stringent quality control means every type of hinge offers unmatched strength, alignment, and even-weight distribution. A wide array of material and finish options are available – steel, domestic stainless steel, domestic stamped aluminum, or extruded aluminum – and our primary and secondary processes range from press brake forming to welding to plating and so much more. It would be remiss not to mention that our engineering department is second to none.
