Operating instructions for a solids pump

"Automatik vor Ort:
Im DB21 Receive Datenbaustein wird die Adresse 0.5 (Auto) von der Leitwarte auf "1" gesetzt. Anzeige OP7: "Automatico Local."
Anschließend leuchtet die weisse ML "Automatik Ein" auf. Die Freigabe der Förderleitung wird über den Profibus (DB21.DBX-0.2=1) "Receive Release" erteilt.
Danach is der Drucktaster "Automatik Start" zu betätigen. Die Öl-Kühlkreislauf-Pumpe läuft an, nach 5 Sekunden startet der Hydraulikpumpenantriebsmotor (grüne ML "Hydraulik Ein" leuchtet). Erst startet die Pumpe und nach 4sec läuft die Vorpreßschnecke an (grüne ML "Pumpe Ein" und ML "Schnecke Ein" leuchten) anschließend der Schubboden mit dem Freigabeventil "Y6" und die Zylinder des Schubbodens."

I believe this is a screw feeder, but can't find any equivalent for the Vorpreß- part.

TIA, Beth
