Honingcraft hones tubes with diameters between 12mm and 1 000 mm with lengths of up to 20 metres using our state of the art cnc controlled honing machines. We do external and internal honing as required by most hydraulic cylinder manufacturing companies. The main purpose of honing is to finish the inside or outside surface of a pipe, tube or cylinder to a precise geometric concentricity in parallel throughout the length of the tube. Honing to a fine, smooth finish will give any tube a signature “crosshatch” where the surface was honed. With Honingcrafts technical knowledge and experience we can hone with high precision, package with diligence, and deliver efficiently, without compromising quality. From flawless honing to the effective and speedy supply of cylinder tubes in any size and cut to length, Honingcraft is a worthy partner in your business.

Hydraulic cylinder rods and barrels endure conditions of extreme pressure. To make them resistant to the extreme conditions under which it will be operated, cylinder rods and barrels are hardchromed to make them resistant to the wear that would usually destroy the base material which the hardchroming process covers. The smooth surface protects the rod wipers and seals, providing trouble free life extention to the cylinder component that is most exposed to dirt and the elements. The combination of experienced reconditioners and high quality machines, ensure that our clients receive the best reconditioned cylinder rods and barrels at an affordable price.


Diesel engines used in railroad locomotives and for ships engines contain liners inside the cylinders. The intricate design of these liners results in a high replacement cost making it more cost effective to recondition the liner, than substituting it with a new one. By reconditioning ship and locomotive engine liners, the productive lifespan can easily be doubled Honingcraft Moser operates plant and machinery built specifically for this purpose, guaranteeing a perfect finish for each of the liners our clients send to profitably and affordably operate their businesses.


Rock drills are some of the hardest working machines in mining due to their continuous operation under extreme conditions in mines.
