An EBSD Study of Texture Variation along Pilger Reduced Titanium Alloy Tubes
This study investigates the changes in radial micro-texture via Kearn’s f-factors during single cold pilger reduction of a titanium Ti-3-2.5 alloy as a result of strain path changes from tooling modifications. EBSD results confirm that the texture intensity as well as the radial f-factors can be increased by modifications of pilgering tooling. In addition a switch between the secondary prism planes which lie normal to the pilger direction in the starting tube to primary prism planes after pilgering has been observed.
