Cross-roll rolling with different rolling routes (unidirectional rolling and reverse rolling) was carried out on a commercial Mg alloy sheets. In the cross-roll rolling, the roll axis was tilted by 7.5 degrees against the transverse direction. As a result of the Erichsen tests at 433 – 493 K, the stretch formability of the reverse cross-rolled specimen was higher than that of the unidirectional cross-rolled specimen. The reverse cross-rolled specimen showed lower average Lankford value compared with the unidirectional cross-rolled specimen. This is likely to be responsible for the enhanced stretch formability of the reverse cross-rolled specimen. The higher stretch formability was attributed to reduction of (0002) texture intensity, which was originated from random grain distribution.
