It is well known that formation of the strong basal textures in Mg alloy sheets is detrimental to the formability of the sheets during further forming process. Texture randomization by adding rare earth (RE) elements (e.g. Gd, Ce) in Mg alloy has shown potential to improve the ductility and formability. This is related to the unique basal textures with double poles splitting along both the rolling direction (RD) and transverse direction (TD) of the Mg-RE alloys sheets, instead of the single peak basal texture formed in conventional Mg alloys. In the present study, by applying normal-rolling and cross-rolling with intermediate annealing at 200șC, RE-texture components were produced in an AZ31 alloy with a relatively low intensity of the texture. In addition, the final microstructure was uniform and fine with the average grain size of 4 ”m.
