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.
