Features
Controls
The F Series Boring Machines are unlike anything
else available to the automotive and diesel engine
builders. These machines represent the next
generation of boring equipment, evolving from the
Rottler F2 boring bar which has been the industry
standard for over 78 years. With improvements in
electronic motors and cutting tool technology, Rottler
Boring Machines are 2 to 3 times more productive
than anything else available on the market.
Operation and programming of Rottler Boring Machines is done with
ergonomical keypads positioned on the front of the machine. Rottler pioneered
the development of this simple method of operation and the display tells the
operator exactly where the spindle is positioned at all times. Programmed
information such as depth of cut, speed, feed is clearly displayed so the
operator knows the machine movements at all times. The A models store
programs in their memory for future use.
Speed
All three models of F Series machines, from the F7M
to the top of the line F8X, have the same high
performance AC servo motor, delivering up to 1200
RPM. Independent feed control
allows you to change the feed rate
from .001” (.025mm) to .012” (.3mm)
per revolution.
Accuracy
The F Series uses a precision ground
ball screw to control feed rate and
cutter position. This allows the
machines to repeat cutter position
accuracy to .0002” (.005mm). The A
and X have a digital programmable
cycles. Boring depth can be
programmed to .0001” (.0025mm).
Strength
F8A with
Big Block Merlin
Rottler has increased the size of the
F8 spindle to ensure the best possible
bore geometry at high spindle speeds.
The Rottler proven spindle and
bearing design gives you a rigid
machine capable of making heavy
sleeve cuts for a life time. The F7 spindle has been
reduced to allow the machining of compact engines,
motorcycles, marine blocks, etc.
A – The A model is programmable for Automatic Cycles. Press cycle
start and "walk away", the A model will center, bore to the exact
programmed depth, index and move tool away from the cylinder wall
and rapid to the upper start position ready for the next operation.
M – The M model has manual push button controls with variable feed
rate and spindle RPM rotary controls. The M model must be floated and
centered manually and depth of cut stop adjusted. Once centering is
complete and boring starts, the machine will stop at the depth stop, index
and move the tool away from the cylinder wall and rapid to the upper
start position ready for the next operation.
Handwheel
The electronic handwheel on the A and X model has 2 modes of operation. In coarse
mode, each "click" of the handwheel will move the machine exactly .001" (.01mm)
and in fine mode, each click will move the machine exactly .0001" (.002mm).

accurate bores for a lifetime. The F8A is ideal for the
production shop where the odd sleeve must be fitted.
The F8M is the fastest, most powerful boring machine
available to the jobber shop. The simple set up and
manual push button controls make this a very
economical machine to operate.

Flexibility
The F Series machines have variable feed rates that
allow you to maximize the performance of the machine.
Increase spindle feed rates for simple oversize bores.
Decrease feed rates for sleeve cuts or counter bores.
The F8 machines can bore from 1.5” (38mm) to 9”
(230mm) in diameter, with optional cutterheads. The
F7 machines can bore from 1.5” (38mm) to 5” (127mm).
Special carbide tools are available for counterboring,
chamfer cutting, offset boring, and O-ringing.

Square Insert Indexable Toolholders
These toolholders are used for general boring to heavy stock
removal. Square inserts have 8 different cutting edges,
making them very economical. Can be used with either
Rottler R4 or the new R2 insert for high performance cutting
up to 1200 RPM. Available for standard production
cutterhead and production stub cutterhead.
Triangular Insert Indexable Toolholders
The ‘Positive Rake’ of these tools reduces cutting pressure,
allowing you to take a larger cut. Triangular toolholders
are used for sleeve cutting or counterbores. Different insert
styles are available for your application.
Coated Carbide Inserts
Rottler offers several different styles of indexable
coated carbide inserts. The square inserts are used
for standard oversize boring applications. The gold,
square insert, R4, can be used from 400 to 650
RPM’s. The new high performance R2 insert, with its
purple color, was developed to be used with the F3/F5
series boring bar. It is capable of standard to heavy
cuts up to 1200 RPM’s. Triangular inserts work well
where cutting a bore to a square shoulder is needed,
such as sleeves or counterbores. The black coating
provides a tough finish capable of heavy sleeve cuts
at high RPM’s. The gold coated inserts provide a
sharper edge, and better finish on the cutting surface.
Ideal for counter bores or finish cuts. Both styles of
triangular inserts are available with 1/64” (0.4 mm) or
1/32” (0.8 mm) radius cutting tips.

Special Tool Bits
These tools were designed for V-Block applications where
main bearing interference at the bottom of the bore is a
problem. They provide an additional .25” of cutting depth
compared to standard tool holders. Available currently
from 3.48 - 4.32” Dia.
Rottler Manufacturing offers a wide variety of brazed carbide
tool bits to handle applications such as facing and
counterboring, offset tools for blind hole and tight clearance
situations, special grooving tools, etc.

The A models have
programmable boring cycles
and automatic centering cycles.
Both models will store up to 100
different boring programs.
Each program stores boring
depth, spindle speeds, and feed
rate. Automated cycles reduce
costly errors while freeing
operators to perform other
tasks. The F8X can bore a
complete block blank
unattended.
Reliability
The F Series machines use a
high-speed, cogged belt drive
system. This, and the use of
two independent motors to run
the spindle speed and feed,
entirely eliminates the gear box.
With fewer moving parts, and
a superior design, the F Series
becomes a much more reliable
boring bar than other designs
of equipment
Cost Savings
The high speed Rottler F
Series machine can bore
a block in half the time
that other models
of boring
machines
require. New
insert technology is
producing long lasting,
inexpensive inserts which
are capable of
handling these
high speeds and
feed rates, with
the same cost per
insert as previous
styles. Inserts do not
require sharpening and the
low cost of these tools makes
them the ultimate choice for
boring cylinders.
This heavy-duty machine was designed for standard
and large capacity machine work. The spindle diameter
has been increased to 3.25" (82.5mm) for extra heavy
duty machining up to 9" (230mm) bore size. Large
sleeve cuts can be taken at high spindle RPMs, and
in many blocks, one pass sleeve cuts are possible to
increase productivity. Programmable counterboring
operations with the A model eliminate guesswork and
provides added timesaving. The massive one piece
meehanite, stress relieved, precision machined base
casting allows the fixturing of large diesel blocks such
as Cummins 855, Detroit 12V71, Mercedes 444V12
and odd jobs such as gear cases and connecting rods.
The F8 machines can also handle small jobs down to
1.5" (38mm) bore diameter with optional cutterheads.

cutterheads are available for production thru boring,
blind hole boring, and heavy duty large diameter
