Rotary swaging processing on commercial as-cast pure Mg has been carried out. Bulk texture variation with the processing passes was investigated using large gauge volume by neutron diffraction, of which results showed a combination of different components such as (00.2) basal fibre and two weak (10.0) and (11.0) fibres. Asymmetric distribution of the basal fibre around swaging direction was observed and being related to the processing parameters. Texture gradient analysis by synchrotron radiation demonstrates a non-uniform deformation of the RS processed pure Mg from surface to the centre.
