General Engineering And Machining

General Engineering And Machining

Honingcraft’s machining department offers precision equipment that specialises in turning, boring, milling and threading hydraulic cylinder components such as:

  • Shafts
  • Tubes
  • Pistons
  • Glands
  • End-caps
  • Ports
  • Mountings

We can bore and machine shafts and rods with outside diameters of 800 mm and lengths up to 15 meters between centres. Our over saddle lathe machines can turn components with outside diameters of 500 mm up to 2 meters in length.

Being renowned for speed and accuracy, Honingcraft has the added advantage of being under the same roof as the material stores of Moser Hardchrome in Germiston and a machining branch in Port Elizabeth at Honingcraft Jünger.

Honingcraft can cut and drill materials at different angles across multiple axes on our premises. Milling is ideal for manufacturing highly detailed and complex components used in many industries.
