The KSTAR superconducting magnet system consists of 16 TF (Toroidal Field) and 14 PF (Poloidal Field) coils. Both of the TF and PF coil systems use internally-cooled Cable-In-Conduit Conductors (CICC). The PF coil system, which consists of 8 coils in the CS (Central Solenoid) coil system and 6 outer PF coils, provides 17 V-s and sustains the plasma current of 2 MA for 20 seconds inductively. PF 1-5 coils use Nb3Sn CICC in an Incoloy 908 conduit and PF 6-7 coils use NbTi CICC in a modified stainless steel 316LN(316LN+). The fabrication of PF7L/U & PF6L/U coils is completed at present. The engineering issues and fabrication process, which are related with the KSTAR PF 6-7 coil development, are presented and discussed in this paper. TF and PF coils are in the fabrication stage for KSTAR completion in the year 2006.
