Honingcraft solutions integrates products and services that reduce turnaround times without compromising on quality.



Hydraulic cylinder rods and barrels endure conditions of extreme pressure. To make them resistant to the extreme conditions under which they operate, cylinder rods are hard-chromed to make them resistant to the wear that would usually destroy the base material. The smooth surface protects the rod wipers and seals, extending the effective life of the cylinder component that is most exposed to the elements. The combination of experienced re-conditioners 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 their 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, which guarantees a perfect finish for each of the liners our clients send. Increase your profitably by extending the life of your liners with our reconditioning services.


Rock drills are some of the hardest working machines in mining due to their continuous operation under extreme condition. At Honingcraft Moser, we recondition rock drill, doubling their lifespan and reducing the risk of machine failure underground. Honingcraft Moser has been reconditioning rock drill cylinders since rock drilling started in South African mines. We are industry leaders in life extension technology. Our operators and machinery ensure that our service is unequalled in effectiveness and reliability.

Jünger Engineering was founded in 1971 by Mr. Jürn Jünger. He was born in Berlin in 1941 and settled in South Africa after travelling from Berlin to Cape Town on a 4 seater bicycle with his brother and two friends. The journey took 21 months to complete. With a character larger than life and an aptitude for problem solving, he became the ‘go-to’ person for solving engineering problems. Mr Jünger is well known as one of the brilliant minds in the local Mechanical Engineering industry. Jünger Engineering was the perfect vehicle for Honingcraft and Moser to gain access to the marine hydraulic industry in Port Elizabeth and the greater Eastern Cape. In 2015 Honingcraft acquired Jünger, and Honingcraft Jünger was born.
