The main objective of this study is to analyze and optimize the cam mechanisms of the cork capper station currently in use for wine bottling machines. For each machine model considered, current cam profiles and corresponding real trajectories performed during operation are analyzed. Subsequently, various alternative laws of motion are tested to implement the same process, respecting the same precision points but modifying other parts of trajectory to improve machine dynamic performances. A series of tests carried out on a reconfigurable prototype and using different types of cork have made it possible to verify the effectiveness of the new laws of motion and to obtain the load acting on the machine at different operating speeds.
