Superconducting combined function magnets will be utilized for the 50 GeV, 750 kW proton beam line for the J-PARC neutrino experiment and an R&D program has been launched at KEK. The magnet is designed to provide a combined function of a dipole field of 2.6 T with a quadrupole field of 19 T/m in a coil aperture of 173.4 mm. Critical magnet components including glass-fiber reinforced phenolic plastic spacers have been successfully developed. The mechanical design has been verified by a 100 mm long short-cut model, and coils have been wound for the first full-length prototype.
