Complex through technology, developed in JSC VNIIKP for serial production of ITER PF and TF cables and TF conductors, is described. This technology was developed as a result of performing some R&D programs on selecting cabling parameters, definition of automatic TIG welding of seamless jacket section, elaboration of cable insertion, compaction and winding process. Fitting of the complex with technological equipment and control devices are also described. Two short qualification TF conductor samples (on the base of internal-tin superconducting strands and with strands manufactured by bronze technology) were made and successfully tested on ??SULTAN?? test facilities. New technologic complex was developed within JSC VNIIKP for realization of this technology. It consists of: (1) Departments for copper and superconducting strands surface cleaning and Cr- and Ni-plating; (2) Cabling workshop; (3) Jacketing line equipped with full production machinery and test devices. First dummy conductor with copper strands cable was jacketed and tested this year on modified jacketing line.
