The effects of cold-rolling and annealing processes on texture and plastic anisotropy of copper-containing austentic stainless steel sheets were studied. This study has shown that a cold-rolled and annealed sheet with improved drawability can be produced without annealing aftere hot-rolling. The improved drawability was attributed to the strong texture around (112) [111] orientation. On the other hand, a cold-rolled and annealed sheet with low earing percentage and reasonable drawability has been obtained by the use of a proper combination of intermediate annealing and rolling reduction in the second stage cold-rolling. The rolling texture of this copper-containing austenitic stainless steel cold-rolled at room temperature consists mainly of (112)[111], (110)[001], (146)[211] and (110)[112] type orientations. The annealing texture of this steel is composed of (112)[111], (123)[111], and (113)[332] type orientations. The 45° ears observed in the cold-rolled and annealed sheets may be associated with the texture concentrated around (112)[111] and (123)[111].
