The unique ZENA® welding system is:
line of OEM and/or retrofittable commercial-duty, engine-driven, 100% duty cycle, multi-process, DC arc welding equipment in the world!
mobile DC welder can be attached
to the engine of ANY existing vehicle
(saving the cost of a separate/new engine).
You no longer need a huge engine driven welding machine taking up most of the space in a pickup truck bed (and most of the payload as well) to do commercial welding. ZENA's new technology replaces these out dated behemoths with an underhood generator package so small, and so light, that there is:
Though, you will notice a huge reduction in your welding equipment cost!
Installation is simple -- designed for do-it-yourselfers. ALL Parts are modular, wires are color coded, and everything plugs together easily. We even have factory made, bolt in bracket kits for most of the American trucks made during the last 20 years!
Best of all, when you're done, you'll have a brand new commercial duty ZENA welder -- for far less than a worn out used portable welder!
That's right, LESS than the cost of a piece-of-junk welder selling at auction!
And, from one-half to one-fifth the cost of a comparable new engine driven welder!
Don't want to build your own? Factory installed ZENA welders are available!
Our ZENA® hydraulic drive welders are perfect for use on service trucks and lift trucks with hydraulic power and absolutely perfect for use on drilling rigs, and man lifts -- including scissor lifts, boom lifts, basket lifts, cranes, etc.
We have a number of dealers and/or distributors, in the US and Europe who built high quality turnkey, ready-to-go, light weight gas and diesel engine driven multi-process ZENA welders -- even combination service truck workstations providing high amp DC welding current for stick, MIG, and TIG welding; AC power for tools; high current DC battery charging/boosting power; and compressed air!

Making Conventional Engine Driven Welders Obsolete -- A Disruptive Technology
ZENA's patented welding power generation and control technology is a sea change -- a true "disruptive technology" in an industry heretofore dominated by a few big firms who have maintained engine driven welder technology with little, or no, real innovative improvement for more than 50 years.
For example, in addition to being relatively inexpensive to manufacture (with NO need to sacrifice quality to make them affordable), ZENA's welders are incredibly compact when compared to previous technology. Yet they are able to produce far more welding power than old fashioned, engine driven welders more than 5 to 20 times their weight!
Better still, these tiny powerhouses produce remarkably little waste heat and ALL electronic components are MODULAR and COMPLETELY WATERPROOF -- sealed in a high tech plastic. And, since heat and moisture are the main enemy of all electronic products, less heat and/or moisture = longer service life (and fewer problems)!
Put another way, these tiny ZENA welders will work productively, and more reliably, for much, much longer than old technology engine driven welders.
This is not just rhetoric Check out our warranty -- 3 full years -- as long, or longer, than that provided for ANY welders made anywhere in the world. And when have your ever seen a welder sold with a 60 day satisfaction guarantee?
And, thanks to built-in troubleshooting features and modular components, there is no need to ever take a user serviceable ZENA welder in to a service facility -- and pay a huge fee just to see if there was anything wrong in the first place. Just follow a simple troubleshooting procedure, observe the action of a few lights, make a simple resistance or voltage reading and you're done.
Equally unique, ZENA's patented electronic controls add a host of features and capabilities that set the ZENA welders far apart from today's host of existing technology based engine driven welders.
See below, OR CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Last, but far from least, ZENA's new technology welders weld better, and are easier to use, than other engine driven welders:
We're not talking about subtle differences either -- you will notice
Our unique modular power generating technology and electronic controls let you mount multiple independently controlled 150A or 200A 100% duty cycle welders to a single engine --- or combine and synchronize multiple welding power generators to create a single giant power generator producing 800 amps (or more) of welding power.
And, with accessories, your welder can also function as: (more on accessories and models below)
That's not all! Our patented cutting-edge technology puts ALL welding controls at your fingertips -- they're built into the electrode holder! You can even adjust power while welding! Giving you total and instantaneous control of the welding process.
The ZENA welding system features unique (patents pending) welding power generating technology that allows you to make x-ray quality welds, and an electronic control system with a user interface unlike that of any other welder in the world. So good that it will spoil you!
Our controls make welding easier for the novice and yet offer the experienced user unparalleled control of the welding process (particularly when working out of position). These unique controls also incorporate significant safety features which are particularly important when operating in difficult environmental conditions.
However, all the technology in the world means nothing if it doesn't work. Our welders work -- really work! In conditions where conventional welders can't. There's simply nothing like them!
Professionals who have tried ZENA welders (and many were skeptical at first) unanimously report excellent welding characteristics and a very pleasant "feel" -- and both pros and amateurs agree that they are very, very easy to use.
Our half-price flat-rate rebuilding policy further protects your investment. It's simple, we will completely rebuild (or replace) any welder or welder component that we manufacture (including the power generator), anytime, for one-half the cost of a new unit! Even if your pet elephant steps on it -- you're protected!
Built to meet or exceed military and underground mining equipment specifications with sealed / waterproof electronic controls, no other welder better meets the unique maintenance requirements of marine, agricultural, and industrial users as well as others who need access to superior, high-power welding equipment that can be used for repair work anywhere.
Thanks to our cutting-edge technology, all ZENA welders, from our popular 150 amp model to our monster 800+ amp systems, are ultra-compact, producing more power, with less waste heat, for a given generator size, without sacrificing reliability, or performance, in any way.
Compact sizing also makes installation/conversion relatively easy.
A number of convenience and utility accessories are available which further enhance the utility of the ZENA mobile welding system.
We also supply hard to get special purpose welding rods for cutting, or for welding metals such as stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron -- even an array of hard surfacing rods. (Call for info.)

NOTE: Similar engine driven welders are made by Miller, Lincoln, Hobart, Century, Esab, HTP, Mitsubishi, Thermal Arc, and other companies. When comparing specifications, you will find that our 150A unit is comparable to, and will do the same job as, for example, a Miller 225 Bobcat welder, a Hobart 250A welder, a Century 200A welder, or a Lincoln Ranger 8 welder. Of course, 160A, 175A, 180A, 275A, or even 300A, or 400A welders would be also in the same category. MIG and TIG torches made by companies like Miller, Lincoln, HTP, Hobart, Tweco, Ready Welder, and Forney are also compatible with our welders -- when used with the proper adapter.
NOTE 2: Do not confuse our patented welding systems with other underhood welders such as those made by Premiere Power, Mobi-Weld, Stellarc, Ready Welder, and others -- our welders are built from the ground up to weld and feature specifications which conform perfectly to international standards for arc welders -- make a careful comparison.
NOTE 3: In addition to service trucks (particularly popular are Ford Diesels, Chevrolet Diesels, and Dodge Diesels) and all types of 4x4's (including Jeep, International, and Toyota), this welder can also be installed on all types of heavy equipment, including backhoes, skid loaders, front end loaders, track loaders, forklifts, and tractors as well as all types of utility vehicle.
