The US HL-LHC Accelerator Upgrade Project (AUP) and the HL-LHC Project at CERN are producing low-beta quadrupoles to be used in the Inner Triplet elements of the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC). In the US, coils and magnets are being fabricated at peak production rate and coil fabrication is ~50% complete. Five magnets have been tested in vertical cryostat, and four of them have been accepted for use in Q1/Q3 cold masses. At CERN two prototypes have been assembled and tested in horizontal cryostat. This talk presents main results from fabrication and test of these components. In addition, it discusses main lessons learned and steps needed for large scale production of Nb3Sn accelerator magnets.
