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.

Moser Industries was the first specialist chroming businesses in South Africa and is a proud part of industrial chroming history and the chrome industry as a whole. When it was acquired in 2011, it had 30 employees who shared a combined 500 years of experience in the chroming industry.

Industrial hard chroming has been around since 1920, and modern techniques were first used successfully by Fink in the USA and Liebreich in Germany. French Engineering Works (FEW) brought chroming technology to Africa to serve the repair needs of the newly mechanised mines of the late 1940s. FEW experienced great success with its hard chroming techniques, and in 1946 a separate company was started to focus solely on the mining service business. It was named Moser Industries. Moser is a company built on experience and is a proud part of chrome history and the chrome industry in South Africa. Through Moser Industries, commercial chroming became available to manufacturers in South Africa.
