Influences of Rolling Conditions on Texture and Formability of Magnesium Alloy Sheets
The AZ61 magnesium alloy was subjected to the differential speed rolling at different rolling conditions including reduction per pass, rotation speed ratio and rolling temperature, and the influences of the rolling conditions on microstructure, texture, mechanical properties and formability of the as-rolled sheets were investigated. Increasing the reduction per pass results in a more homogeneous microstructure and a relatively weaker basal texture. With increasing the rotation speed ratio, the inclination angle of basal pole toward the rolling direction increases and the stretch formability enhances correspondingly. Increasing the rolling temperature has an effect on weakening the basal texture intensity and leads to the enhancement of stretch formability.
