Abstract:The commercially pure copper with dimension of 80 mm×20 mm×4 mm was used for equal channel angular pressing (ECAP), of which their outward appearance coordinate is corresponded with that of rolling deformation modes. Cold-deformed texture was investigated. The results show that the texture character in pure copper processed by ECAP is related with intersection angle (F) of the die channel. When F is 90˚ and the sample is extruded for one pass, its texture consists of α and b orientation lines including mainly C, B, S and Goss components, moreover a little rotated cube is found. When F is 135˚, as extrusion pass increases, the weak texture forms on the scope of deviation from rotated cube (y=0˚, θ=0˚, j=45˚±15˚) and develops to the y=45˚ fiber mainly including rotated cube. When F is 120˚, the texture is y=45˚ fiber mainly including rotated cube that is maintained constant as extrusion pass increases.
