The ENICAB company in Biskra uses the cold drawing process on several types of wires rod of different materials and grades. Our study was carried out on an Al-Mg-Si (AA6101) aluminum alloy wire rod, the most used by the ENICAB company in the manufacture of electrical energy transmission cables. The purpose of this work is to understand the evolution of the deformation texture and the stored energy in the grains during cold drawing of wire, as well as the combined influence of deformation and annealing at 400 °C during different holding time on recrystallization kinetics and evolution of local and global crystallographic texture. Characterization methods used in this work is: Optical Microscopy (OM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Back Scatter Electron Diffraction (EBSD), X-ray diffraction, Neutron diffraction, Vickers microhardness and Chemical analysis by EDS.Keywords: Texture, annealing recrystallization, wire drawing deformation, AlMgSi alloy
