Superconducting magnets are in growing use outside laboratories for example MRI scanners in hospitals. Other applications under development are magnet systems for separation, levitated trains and ship propulsion. The application of cryocoolers can make these systems more practical. Interfacing these cryocoolers to the magnets can be designed in several different ways. The four basic methods will be dealt with. Test results of a realized GM cryocooler-SC magnet system will be shown. It handles about a 1:3 scale MRI magnet of which one of the six coils has been successfully tested at temperatures between 10 and 14 K.
