Assembly & Disassembly Services
The hydraulic cylinder repair process starts with a thorough assessment of all components. WAICE specialists carefully test then disassemble the cylinder, inspect the failure mode, assess the damage and uncover any underlying issues. A thorough digital inspection report is completed on iPads & connected to the mainframe of the company. The inspection report is used to prepare the full quotation / costing estimate for the customer along with technical evidence and advice in how to improve the performance and life of the component.
After repairs are complete, the cylinder is reassembled by our experienced team, fully tested, painted and ready for dispatch back to our valued customers. Our 24-hour a day, seven day a week service means your equipment is up and running again as soon as possible, saving you time and money.Enquire Now

Precision is everything when it comes to hydraulic cylinder grinding to remove the old chrome surface before applying the new one. We regularly invest in the latest cylindrical grinding technology to ensure the highest standards for our industry. Grinding requires experience to gauge the pressure required on the machine to remove the chrome layer while leaving the steel beneath untouched. Our outstanding team of machinists are dedicated to achieving optimum results.

Honing takes precision to the level of perfection. Honing is a process that requires specialised equipment operated by highly skilled machinists with a keen eye and an instinctive “feel” for the job. Our 2 honing machines can accommodate the largest heavy-duty cylinders in the mining industry. The result is a polished surface finish with improved bore geometry, improved lubrication, and removal of surface defects. Thus, increasing the lifespan of the internal hydraulic seals to achieve a durable hydraulic cylinder that will keep your plant operating reliably with less downtime.
Our Honing Services:
• 2 x Sunnen HTH Honing Machines
• Honing up to 560mm diameter
• Honing blind bores up to 4000mm in length
• Honing open ended bores up to 8000mm in length
• Surface measuring equipment
Strip Tank Polishing Services
A new hard chrome surface is the outcome of a process that starts with removing the old damaged surface. Grinding the cylinder rod is one option, but the other is stripping. Stripping allows the old chrome to be removed while preserving the integrity of the steel and without any loss of in its diameter. The cylinder rod can then be polished on our specially designed linishing machine and can then, if no major damage, reduce the amount of chrome deposit on the rod which helps to a reduced lead time.Enquire Now
