A device was designed to apply the directional recrystallization method to Fe-based alloys in order to obtain bamboo-like microstructures. This microstructure is suitable for improving creep properties and resistance to fatigue in some alloys and for enhancing pseudoelastic properties in shape memory alloys. The design and construction of a flat coil are described in detail. In addition, we developed an electromechanical system to control the movement of a wire within the flat coil. The construction details and system performance are presented. Furthermore, metallographic studies taken from the directionally recrystallized low-carbon steel samples are shown. Nearly monocrystalline and bamboo-like microstructures were achieved in the steel wires.
