The conceptual design of the ITER TF model coil (TFMC) was produced by the European Home Team based on the ITER TF coil design. The test configuration in the TOSKA facility of FZK comprises the TFMC coupled with the existing European LCT coil by an Intercoil Structure (ICS). The elements of the TFMC are being constructed by European industry under the supervision of ITER European Home Team and are currently nearing completion. The primary objectives of the TFMC program are to gain experience of all aspects of the coil manufacturing process (including QA methods) and to establish realistic manufacturing tolerances for the actual ITER TF coils. At the current state of the project many of these objectives have already been achieved. The various technical problems encountered during engineering design and manufacture have been solved and have produced very useful information which can be applied in the ITER procurement documents for the TF coil system. This paper presents a description of the manufacturing process and related QA procedures.
