LaDeau’s Aerospace Hinges

Aerospace projects demand specialized aerospace hinges that can withstand the most brutal demands.  We, at LaDeau Manufacturing, eagerly embrace the most-exhaustive clauses from aerospace professionals who expect perfection.  Aerospace hinge fabrication continues to be one of our niche markets – hinges for hydraulic lines, instrumentation systems, pressure gauging, and more must operate seamlessly and predictably – in other words, there is no room for error.

LaDeau’s Mil-Spec hinges and pins – such as MS20257, MS20001, and MS20253 – become, ultimately, destined for aerospace needs.  Our butt hinges, spring-loaded hinges, and continuous/piano hinges are commonly utilized for this highly-technical arena. Our aerospace hinges serve commercial and military applications – from next-generation jet engines, aircraft hydraulic systems, to solar panels on satellites – LaDeau Manufacturing is doing its part to make sure the world keeps moving, day in and day out.

LaDeau’s Industrial Hinges

LaDeau’s industrial hinges can be in the form of continuous/piano hinges, butt hinges, spring-load varieties, and more to meet the incredible needs of medical, military, agriculture, marine venues, and others. Then, there are industrial hinges used in elevated freeway viaducts to minimize the transfer of bending stresses between structural components.  Or how about hinges embedded in radiation-shielding doors?

Customizing industrial and aerospace hinges, down to the smallest of details, is nothing extraordinary – in other words, it’s part of LaDeau’s daily operations.  Any length, width, hole pattern, form, or other features can be meticulously modified to ensure hinge functionality meets any out-of-the-ordinary contingency. Thanks to LaDeau’s manufacturing arsenal and the versatility of our proprietary Universal tooling system, our consumers can request any type of alterations, for any type of hinge, for any type of use, with minimal cost.

Our Passion Is What Drives Us

At LaDeau Manufacturing, we are passionate about our history, our character, and our reputation – our passion IS what drives us as we fiercely protect and maintain four foundational components:

***  Integrity – LaDeau’s mission for excellence rests on simple, honest objectives: 1)  manufacture precision products 2) offer fair prices 3) maximize the efficiency of production and delivery without compromising quality and 4) generate personalized relationships with every customer!

*** Expertise –  LaDeau Manufacturing has a rich history.  During WWII, our company’s founders worked with the Lockheed Corporation, which manufactured a variety of aircraft, including bombers.  Today, the Lockheed Martin Corporation remains one of the most famous military facilities in the US.

The end of WWII shook up the aerospace industry which was entering an exciting era — aircraft manufacturing was destined to proceed, full-steam ahead as one of the most defining industries of the 20th Century.  The production-hungry aircraft industry was ready to embrace new innovations and technologies.  The time was ripe for our founders to veer off in a different direction and launch their own company, LaDeau Manufacturing.

At that time, LaDeau Manufacturing focused on the production of aircraft hinge assemblies.  After 70 years of expansion and expertise, LaDeau Manufacturing continued to evolve and now caters to local, national and global interests that serve marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security needs.

*** 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.

LaDeau Manufacturing is an ISO-9001:2015 certified world-class hinge manufacturer.  We are proud of our more-than-99.8% consumer-acceptance rate in addition to being independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.

***  Capabilities –  LaDeau’s stringent quality control means hinge strength, durability, alignment, and even-weight distribution is unsurpassed.  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 hole piercing to welding to plating and so much more.
