F109 Chamfering Upper Bores CAT 3600
F100 machines incorporate the use of a large diameter hard chromed
spindle, utilizing high precision angular contact bearings and automatic
Machine ways are induction hardened and coated with turcite low friction
material and supplied with air pressure to reduce friction and give long
Anti friction ball screws and AC Servo motors provide precise machine
positioning and rapid feed rates.
Air power drawbar allows cutterheads to be changed in seconds increasing
productivity and reducing operator fatigue - the machine can be changed
from boring to surfacing in less than 15 seconds!
Automated workhead tilting system for surfacing provides "back clearance"
for superior surface finish.
Increased clearance from spindle centerline to the machine's column allow
large castings to be set up and machined.
All F100 machines employ an array of features which help maximize the productivity capabilities of the machines.
Quick tooling change-over maximizes the versatility and flexibility of the machine, allowing boring and surfacing in
one set-up. F100 Series machines have the capability of Boring, Surfacing, Line Boring, and Universal Machining.
Traveling column and spindle movements are operated by precision ball screws and AC servo motors. Optional
Automatic cycle software and production tooling allow complete block banks to be machined without operator
attendance, once the job is set up and the "cycle start" button is pressed, the operator is free to "walk away" and do
other work while the F100 completes a block bank or main line bore unattended!
Over 20 years ago, Rottler pioneered automation by utilizing electronics and computers. Today, Rottler utilizes
the latest computer technology to make automation easy to learn, versatile to operate and upgradeable for future
software. Windows operating system and touch screen control make a simple operator interface. Touch screen
control allows ONLY the buttons and information required for each operation to be displayed, "hiding" the complex
computer functions in the background. Operators are able to learn advanced machining functions in just a few days.
Common, everyday jobs such as
boring, surfacing and line boring
can be easily automated with
the F100 machines. Operator
attendance is only required for
set up. The machine is able to
bore along a complete cylinder
bank automatically. Likewise, the
machine is capable of line boring
along a main line automatically.
Often when surfacing a block,
more than one pass is required.
The F100 can be programmed
for multiple passes, moving down
the exact amount each pass and
completing with a finish cut for
the required surface finish during
the final pass.
Bore centers are either measured from
the block or from a blueprint, then saved
in the memory. The F100 machine moves
automatically to the exact positions, which
is useful when multiple boring operations
are required for jobs such as resleeving.
For special applications, Optional Renishaw
Wireless Probing can automatically find bore
centers and measure diameters.
When resleeving the lower seal area of wet
liner blocks, it is often required to bore a
diameter larger than the upper diameter.
Rottler's Automatic Lower Sleeve Repair
Software allows the machine to offset so
that the boring tool will clear the upper
diameter, move down, then move back on
center to bore the lower area on center with
the upper bore. Once boring is complete,
the machine will index the cutting tool, offset
the programmed amount and retract and
continue to the next cylinder - automatically.
