To identify the relationship between grain orientation and precipitation of MnS/AlN particles during hot deformation, cylinder samples containing columnar grains in electrical steels were prepared with different angles between columnar grain axis and sample axis. They were heated at 1360°C and compressed at 1100°C for 50%. Grain orientations and the precipitation states are determined using XRD, EBSD, EDS and SEM. Results indicate a general behavior of less precipitates in <100> and more precipitates in <111> grains. In addition, more precipitates were observed in samples with grain boundaries perpendicular to compression axis.
