Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) spotlight at SMM Hamburg the Unitor UPC1041 plasma cutter specifically for marine use .

Compact and lightweight for ease of use onboard, the UPC1041 offers the best performance- to- weight ratio on the market currently say WSS.

Its unique design utilises an active fan control system, reducing dust and dirt inside the cutter and strengthening the system functionality. 
A direct torch connection negates problems usually associated with twisting the torch connection, and double coated electronics further improve reliability. The UPC1041 has a high duty cycle and is tolerant to high ambient temperatures onboard, no matter the working environment.
