  • Publication number: 20200370200
    Abstract: Provided is a method of manufacturing an oriented steel plate having two or more regions in each of which a crystal orientation is arranged in a specific direction. In the method, at least two single crystal steels are brought into contact with a principal surface of a polycrystalline steel plate so that crystal orientations of the single crystal steels and are arranged in different directions, and heat treatment of the single crystal steels and the polycrystalline steel plate is performed. This causes crystal growth following the crystal orientations of the single crystal steels to occur in the polycrystalline steel plate. Then, two or more single crystal steels having different crystal orientations are formed in the polycrystalline steel plate.
