The major part of the program involves the industrial fabrication of long lengths of full-size conductors and the manufacturing of test coils that will be thoroughly tested in a single test facility (TOSKA, at KfK Karlsruhe, Germany). A total of 3.5 km of 40-kA conductor is required to form circular model coils with an inner bore of 2 m and a peak field of over 13.5 T. Short (5-m) lengths of full-size 40-kA conductors have been manufactured. The present results on the industrial fabrication of 12-T, 40-kA cable-in-conduit conductors for the Next European Torus (NET) indicate that the machine design criteria can be satisfied and that the conductor is suitable for large-scale industrial fabrication
