The invention relates to the processing of metals by pressure, for example, to the production of thin strips and foils of alloys of the system Al-Mg, Al-Mg-Mn and can be used, for example, in the metallurgical industry for the manufacture of thin films, for the production of packaging in the food industry.

There is a method of rolling systems Al-Mg containing cold rolling with intermediate recrystallization annealing, rolling before and after annealing lead with a total degree of deformation of 75-95%, the degree of deformation before annealing is 1-1 .25 from the degree of deformation after annealing (see A.S. 850235, WV 3/6, USSR, 1981).

The disadvantages of this method include:

1. The presence of intermediate annealing that when rolling on stage II does not provide the necessary strength characteristics.

2. The method does not provide high plasticity.

3. A large variability of mechanical properties.

4. Not provide the required level of festoons.

There is a method of rolled Al-Mg alloys containing cold rolling in several passes, in which the rolling carried out with the degree of deformation per pass 40-45%, while the aisles cooling the metal to 70-80°C (A.S. 878386, WV 3/0, USSR, 1981).

The disadvantages of this solution include:

1. Metal cooling between passes complicates the technological process and reduces p is poizvoditelnosti.

2. Implementation of rolling each pass with the degrees of deformation of 40-45% is possible on single-stand mill, but almost impossible to mnogoletija.

3. Does not allow for heavily cold-worked metal to receive the increased plasticity.

The closest technical solution of the present invention is a method for the production of foil by a method of multi-pass cold rolling thin strips of aluminum alloys, where each of the last two passages are rolling with the degree of compression for a given ratio between the tape options


where H is the initial thickness of the strip, h is the desired final thickness of the ribbon, K is a coefficient equal to 0,05-0,07 (see EN 2226437,7WV 3/00 from 10.04.2004), with a total degree of compression, amounting to at least 85%, with a minimum speed of 500 m/min and temperature at the end of the rolling, equal to 140-160°C when the mass of the roll 5 so

The disadvantages of this method include:

The degree of deformation calculated by this formula, is extremely small, which does not provide the necessary heating of the strip during cold rolling.

The task of the invention is to increase the plasticity and stanoevska treated metal and reduction of the scatter of mechanical properties.

The task in the present invention is achieved by way of a cold mnogo ohodnot rolling thin strips of aluminum alloys of the system Al-Mg or Al-Mg-Mn. While rolling is subjected to a fully recrystallized hot rolled billet tape having a cube texture and thickness, 9-10 times the final thickness of the ribbon, while the rolling is conducted with a degree of deformation of 45-57% in each of the last two passages and with the speed of deformation of at least 10 m/s in the last passage with maintenance of the temperature of 140-160°C in the coil by the winding of the tape into a roll weighing not less than 8 tons

When the degree of deformation <45% to be achieved in two passes required temperature at 140-160 degrees With the impossible. If the degree of deformation >57%, the temperature will be higher than necessary and the rolling process will become unstable. When the rolling speed <10 m/s fine stripe does not provide saving achieved the desired interval, when the winding into a roll. Without a fully recrystallized hot rolled billet is not guaranteed that the resource of plasticity required for high-speed rolling without destruction. In the absence of the cubic texture in hot-rolled workpiece has a strong fashionistas.the at an angle of 45° to the direction of rolling. The necessity of keeping the interval ratio of the thickness of, 9-10 times the final thickness of the ribbon, due to the fact that at <9 strength is not obtained, and at >10 occurs intense fracturing and buckling during rolling, and do not provide aceveda required fashionistas.the. For the mass of rolled billets <8 t the rate of natural cooling coil in the air does not provide the necessary residence time in the temperature range needed for the relaxation processes.

The proposed method of cold rolling for the above systems allows you to get a tape with high strength properties, plastic properties and stanoevska and reduce the spread of mechanical properties. For example, the ribbon alloy 3104 (system Al-Mg-Mn) thickness 0,265 mm, manufactured by the proposed method allows to obtain stable following mechanical properties (table 1):

From the presented figures show that the parameter σinthe spread decreased by 4 times, and the parameter σ02- 8 times.

The goal of the invention is tested repeatedly, consistently provided results mentioned above.

The way multi-pass cold rolling thin strips of aluminum alloys of the system Al-Mg or Al-Mg-Mn, characterized in that the rolling is subjected to a fully recrystallized hot rolled billet tape having a cube texture and thickness, 9-10 times the final thickness of the ribbon, while the rolling is conducted with a degree of deformation of 45-57% in each of the last two passages and with the speed of deformation of at least 10 m/s in the last passage with maintenance of the temperature of 140-160°C in the coil by the winding of the tape into a roll weighing not less than 8 tons
