A new way of severely deforming ductile metals in order to refine their microstructure is proposed. It is called incremental angular splitting and originates from the idea of orthogonal cutting. It is intended to intensify plastic deformation in the cutting zone and lead to faster refinement of the microstructure. A laboratory experiment carried out on Al 1070 has proved the technical feasibility of the process. As the first indication of process capability, micro hardness measurements have been used to compare incremental angular splitting and incremental equal channel angular pressing.
