Ever since its foundation in 1994, Starcyl has always been known for its concern for top quality products and support to its customers by first developing a revolutionary upgradeable multistage pneumatic cylinder. This innovation patented in Canada and USA combines low space usage and multiplies force by adding modular stages (STAR1 series).

Over the years, the company has expanded and developed new product lines and custom made products of pneumatic cylinders, hydraulic cylinders and presses in order to better answer the unceasingly increasing demand. Incorporated in the United States since July 1, 2003, Starcyl Cylinders offers today ten product lines answering the expectations of several customers and distributors in Canada and the United States.

Star 1 Series

Star 1 Series
Space Savers Square Line, Multistage & Upgradeable


The only cylinder upgradeable, you don't have    enough force, add a stage to double your force.
Square Line uses less space compared to round.
Multistage uses less air, only one stage push back    the others.
Space saver also uses less air (in using the real    stroke).
All Starcyl cylinders can be interchangeable with    the competition.
Full bodies allow easy cleaning.

ST3RL Series
Interchangeable NFPA Rod Lock Series


Precision Operation Maintains Accurate Positioning
The ST3RL series of Rod Locks guarantees accurate positioning and provides precision holding while other operations are performed. The Rod Lock engages without causing any rod displacement, and also features extremely low backlash during operation, making them ideal for precision applications.
Large Clamping Surface Ensures Consistent Performance
The ST3RL line is designed with a large clamping surface that provides uniform force to the rod contact area on every engagement. The clamping mechanism utilizes numerous ball bearings to reduce friction and has close to a 3,000,000 cycle life.
