The textures of different modes of “balanced” cross-rolling were studied in ARMCO-iron. Thereby equal partial rolling degrees are applied in longitudinal and transverse direction. Three modes of cross-rolling were used. In true multi-stage cross-rolling the rolling direction is changed by 90° after each small deformation pass. In two-stage rolling at first all longitudinal passes were done and then all transversal passes. In four-stage rolling four alternate groups of longitudinal and transversal passes were used. The main texture component is {001}‹110› the density of which increases from two-stage to multi-stage. A second coeponent is a ‹111› || ND fibre and finally a minor cube component is observed.
