French term or phrase: paille
I have given two sentences in which this word appears and I have not been able to understand what it means. Can anyone help me?
Le mouvement de translation du bouchon, qui commence immédiatement après la mise en place du bouchon sur la paille,.....

Le filet du bouchon il est engagé au filet de la paille et peut être bien serré par la visseuse.

(bottle) stem
Explanation:
The logic of the sentence suggests that we have a (female) screw thread cap which fits onto a (male) receptacle, which I assume is a bottle of some sort. I.e. the thread on the cap engages the (corresponding) thread on the stem/neck and can be tightened by the 'visseuse'. "Paille" can mean many things, but is often taken to mean something generally cylindrical.

straw


Explanation:
This packing machine is for liquids, so it seems.
Then it could be that the liquid is being fed into the packing through a thin pipe, the paille or straw.
