Deep drawability of aluminum alloys depends strongly on its microstructure, including metallurgical texture. During production of cold rolled sheet of aluminum, upstream processes like homogenization alter the microchemistry of the alloy and have significant effect on the microstructure of the hot rolled coil. Annealing response post-cold working is found to show strong dependence on heating rate when softening processes interact with microchemistry evolution. Different microstructures and textures were observed in material processed with different homogenization and annealing practice. VPSC simulations were used to predict deep drawability of these microstructures. Tensile and Erichsen tests were carried out to validate the predictions.
