System for Cork Treatment Tests through Compression, Insertion and Relaxation

It is aimed for the study of the cork stoppers behavior in real bottling conditions, by analyzing it throughout the compression, insertion and relaxation movements.

CITcork was developed to focus on the important variables related to the corking, allowing great configurability (speed, position, data acquisition). It was also thought to be a very simple, and yet reliable system to be used either in laboratory or factory floor environments.

This new system should allow the following test types: compression followed by insertion; compression followed by recovery analysis; compression followed by relaxation analysis; and compression followed by expulsion. This can be performed to multiple types of cork stoppers: natural, agglomerated and for champagne.

It also has the option of corking bottles and an optional module to acquire the mass of each cork stopper through the use of a weighing scale.
