What’s the Difference Between Climb and Conventional Cutting?
What is the difference between Climb & Conventional cutting?
Milling tools can advance through the material so that the cutting flutes engage the material at maximum thickness and then decreases to zero. This is called Climb Milling.
Cutting in the opposite direction causes the tool to scoop up the material, starting at zero thickness and increasing to maximum. This is called Conventional Milling. The fewer the teeth, the more space between them. This is called chip space.
