For the better part of two decades LDJ Manufacturing has designed, developed and produced a variety of steel products. By integrating fabrication technology, continual process improvement and skilled employees, we take pride in ensuring every product that leaves our 55,000 square foot facility has exceptional fit, finish, and function.  

Design

designLDJ's research and development team consists of experienced professionals who excel at taking great ideas from disjoined pieces on a drawing board and refining them to the point they are production ready with the exceptional fit, finish and function that LDJ has become known for.

We utilize the latest SolidWorks design software to allow for computerized model testing and evaluation before production. Our team is well-versed with metal fabrication processes and has experience with mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic functions.

Additionally, our team examines product costing from inputs to integration of the best process improvements for both large and small production runs.

Manufacturing

Welding

weldingLDJ Manufacturing’s D1.1 certified welders are prepared with a full arsenal of options which include Pulse, Spot, Short-Arc and TIG welding. Our Panasonic Perform Arc robotic welding system offers the precision repeatability of computerized welding. This specialized robot can weld from two sides in tandem while maintaining a repeatability factor of +/- .004 inches.

Recently, LDJ completed a large weld job for a world-renowned customer. To our disappointment, the order was quarantined when one of the customer's painters noted a missing weld. Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the weld was in fact there, but could not be detected beneath the paint due to the precision and smoothness of the welded steel.

Signs of Arthritis in Feet

The most common type of arthritis in feet is osteoarthritis, which causes the cartilage to degenerate, leading to bunions. Wearing high heels or pointy-toed shoes should be avoided if you have this type of arthritis in feet, because they can place added pressure on the bunion. The symptoms of osteoarthritis in feet usually develop slowly over a period of time, rather than developing suddenly. Whether signs of arthritis in feet sneak up on you gradually or arrive suddenly, they can be painful and make it difficult to walk. There are two main types of arthritis in feet, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Both cause joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, and swelling of the feet. It’s helpful to have your arthritis in feet looked at by a professional if you are finding it painful to walk normally, to find out what type of arthritis you are suffering from, and what your main treatment options might be. A combination of supplements, exercise, and sensible shoes can lessen symptoms in most cases.

Painting

Our on-site electrostatic paint facility, with 14.9' x 26.5' dimensions, ensures the best possible coverage with painting occuring in a clean room environment by our highly-skilled paint crew. Additionally, the electrostatic process ensures uniform paint coverage and uses far less paint than conventional paint booths.
