Interstitial free (IF) steel sheets were cold rolled by the cross-roll rolling mill in which the roll axes are tilted by ± 7.5° away from the transverse direction of the rolled sample. After cross-roll rolling of IF steel sheets, the cold rolling and the recrystallization textures were distinguished from those observed after rolling in a normal rolling mill. The three-dimensional finite element method (FEM) simulation revealed that the operation of a large shear strain ∈ 23 during cross-roll rolling leads to the formation of a distinct cold rolling texture. During recrystallization annealing, a pronounced change in texture components was not observed, which is attributed to the lack of either selective growth or oriented nucleation during the recrystallization process. Cold cross-roll rolling led to the formation of finer recrystallized grains in IF steel sheets.
