Hi DuzZebra,
I will try to give the difference of these two types of milling in terms of their characteristics.
The width of the chip begins from zero and rises in conventional milling and vice versa in climb milling.
Its tooth touches the workpiece at bottom of the cut in conventional milling while it meets at the top in climb milling.
I hope this will help you!
Never let any mechanical device know that you are in a hurry.

Climb milling requires less power as compared to conventional milling. Tool wear is also very little in climb milling than in conventional milling. From my experience with climb milling I found out that work hardening is greatly reduced. However, due to tool deflection, Climb milling will affect the accuracy by increasing or decreasing the width of the cut.

Thanks guys. It seems like climb milling is promising
Cheers!

Hi Duzzebra,
Don’t just look at the advantages and disadvantages of these two milling options. There are occasions when you should consider using conventional milling and not climb milling. The vice versa is also true.

This is true for sure. I use climbing to rough and conventional to finish passes. This is because there is little deflection in conventional hence producing good finishes.

Thanks once again guys. Seems like I am in a rush. I am doing some micromachining. Which milling option is good for this kind of work?

What’s the rush for?
Due to the deflection in climb milling, you should consider conventional milling for micromachining
