AustChrome offers customers a comprehensive and unparalleled range of reclamation and reconditioning technologies, including chrome plating, hydraulic cylinder repairs, machining services, and thermal spray coating services.

Chrome plating operations

Austchrome is the only business in Mackay and Central Queensland that has the capacity and expertise to undertake chrome plating of very large components. Our chrome tanks are able to handle a wide range of hydraulic cylinder rods, shafts, and suspension type componentry.

Hydraulic cylinder repairs

AustChrome repairs and overhauls small to very large hydraulic cylinders, performing cylinder chroming, rod straightening, resealing, and pressure testing. The company has invested in the latest machinery to accommodate the largest cylinders in the market. We provide customers with high quality, fast turnaround times, at lower costs.

Our hydraulic assembly and testing facility maintains ISO4406 for superior contamination control. This international standard ensures hydraulic cylinder groups that are assembled and tested at our facility are free of contaminants that can greatly reduce the working life of a cylinder assembly, and increase our customers’ costs over time.

Austchrome’s hydraulic engineering division also provides NATA certified failure analysis services.

Machining services

AustChrome provides unmatched, large capacity turning, horizontal boring, vertical boring and milling services including new, high-quality computer numerical control (CNC) machines.

Thermal spray

AustChrome is the only business in Central Queensland that offers high velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF), arc spray, and plasma transferred arc (PTA) coatings which can be used for cost saving repairs on an extensive range of componentry for the mining, civil, marine and sugar industries.
