I had EXACTLY this same problem with an Italian floor corker and synthetic corks. Solved it by going back to micro agglomerated corks., i.e. putting a crease in synthetic corks that causes the bottled to leak if you put them on their side.
It taught me that the synthetic corks are not as robust at bouncing back from compression and made me question their long term effectiveness.
