Pre-Fill Valve Circuit

In this circuit, the subsidiary cylinders and the pre-fill valve help the main cylinder achieve pumping function. This circuit drastically reduces the pump-output volume required for the high-speed up-and-down cylinder motion of the press machine.

As the subsidiary cylinders move downward, the main cylinder is pulled down with them, sucking fluid from the reservoir through the pre-fill valve. At the end of the downward motion, the sequence valve is opened, and working fluid is directed to the main cylinder, which then generates a great pressure force on the press.
After the pressure is released, the solenoid valve is set for the high-speed upward motion. The main cylinder is pulled up again with the subsidiary cylinders, pushing fluid back to the reservoir through the pre-fill valve.
