True cross-rolling and pseudo cross-rolling (with only one change of the rolling direction after half of the total deformation degree) was investigated in an alloy AlMn1 up to 93% deformation. The texture formation was studied in terms of ODF. After true cross-rolling (multi-stage rolling) a strong two-component ideal orientation near (011)[322] was found with maximum densities up to 60 times random. Pseudo cross-rolling (two-stage rolling) resulted in weaker, but still strong deformation textures with maximum densities up to twenty times random which were intermediate between unidirectional and true cross-rolling textures. In both cases, the originally present cube texture decreased continuously with increasing deformation degree.
