Chroming

Chroming

Honingcraft Moser operates one of the largest shaft chroming plants in Africa, enabling us to provide any industrial chroming requirement.

Honingcraft sources and manufactures only the best CK45 and condition-T (hardened) chrome bars. Chrome bars can be used for many applications, including hydraulic piston rods.

Honingcraft Moser and Honingcraft Jünger can chrome shafts with a maximum diameter of 1,000 mm, at lengths up to 10,000 mm. Our rectifiers can supply a combined 124,000 amps of power into 122 kilolitre baths of chromic acid baths supported by 100 tonnes of combined overhead cranage. Our 500 years of combined chroming experience makes ours the most knowledgeable chroming team in African industry.

Chrome plating, often referred to simply as chroming, is a technique of electroplating a thin layer of chromium onto a metal object. Industrial chroming, or Hard Chrome, extends the life of any treated product by providing corrosion resistance, increasing surface hardness and easing cleaning procedures. The chrome layer provides corrosion resistance, eases seal operations and increases surface hardness. We offer fast-turnaround with no compromise on client specifications, no deviation from tube size or agreed deadline.

Honingcraft supplies induction hardened chrome bars for heavy-duty applications like hydraulic piston rods exposed to impact damage. 

Honingcraft also offers re-chroming services. Rechroming is an excellent solution for restoring cylinder rods, pellet dies and rollers. The entire process of re-chroming, from stripping old chromium plating to grinding damaged base materials and re-chroming, is done at Honingcraft Jünger.
