Effects of micro flexible rolling and annealing on microstructure, microhardness and texture of aluminium alloy

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The microstructure and texture after plastic deformation are strongly dependent on the corresponding manufacturing process and subsequent annealing which significantly affect the properties of the final products. In this study, 1060 aluminium alloy with a thickness of 464 μm was micro flexibly rolled to a constant thickness ratio of 3.6 by a combined control of the roll gap, the rolling speed and the roll lifting speed. Afterwards, the rolled specimens were subjected to isochronal annealing at a temperature range of 200 to 400 °C for 30 min and isothermal annealing at 400 °C for 10–60 min. Results indicate that the microstructure, microhardness and texture of each thickness zone are distinctly influenced by the rolling parameters and annealing conditions. Specimens annealed at 400 °C for 30 min result in a relatively steady hardness distribution along the transition zones. Typical β fibre texture is observed in the specimens suffered from annealing while S is predominant in both micro flexibly rolled and annealed specimens.
