Abstract / Description:The Max Planck Institute of Plasmaphysics is building up the stellarator fusion experiment Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) at the branch institute in Greifswald. W7-X continues the line of stellarator experiments at IPP. To allow for steady state operation W7-X has a superconducting coil system with 50 non-planar and 20 planar coils. The coil system is grouped in five equal modules, each consisting of two mirror symmetric half modules. The half modules are assembled from five different non-planar coils, two planar coils and a sector of the coil support structure. All cryogenic parts are enclosed in a cryostat to protect them from ambient temperature. The magnet system was ordered from the European industry. The production of superconductor, winding packs and encasings are under way. The main focus of this contribution aims on the fabrication state of the coil system.
