Methods of modern quantitative texture analysis are applied in order to characterise the crystallographic texture of various non-oriented electrical steel grades in view of their relation with the magnetic properties of the steel sheet. A texture parameter is defined which quantifies the density of <100> easy magnetic directions in the lamellar planes. An extensive correlation study revealed the relation of this parameter with the hysteresis losses, determined at an induction of 1.5 T, and with the induction measured at an applied external field of 25 A/cm. It is shown that the latter magnetic property is the more texture dependent, whereas the former one is more sensitive to the grain size of the steel. Also various strategies for texture control are critically reviewed. It is shown that the conventional manufacturing process only provides poor tools for optimising the texture of the final product. In order to obtain a quantum-leap improvement of the magnetic quality of the texture, in combination with other important micro structural features, non-standard processing strategies are required, such as cross rolling, two stage cold rolling or surface annealing.
