UPA Technology recently exhibited at the AIST (Association for Iron and Steel Technology) Conference in Columbus, Ohio. UPA jointly exhibited with Infralytic and DaBen LLC to provide information on the Infralytic hand held (NG2 and NG3) and inline (NG03) oil sensors. These oil sensors enable more precise lubricant thickness measurements than any other technology or instrument.


The NG2 Oil Sensor infrared technology was developed by Infralytic and has become the worldwide industry standard, having more than 90% market share in the USA and Canada. The portable Oil Sensor NG2 provides accurate, repeatable lubricant thickness measurements in less than a second.


Used in conjunction with an Oil Sensor NG3, the UV-Mini is an innovative device that measures lubricant films in complex, highly formed parts and pressed 3-D stampings.  The UV-Mini incorporates Ultra-Violet technology for lubricant measurement while the Oil Sensor NG3 wirelessly provides the calibrations for the instrument.


The NG03 uses the Infralytic technology to measure inline for continuous measurement. The inline installations are custom designed to be integrated into the manufacturing process.

Are you having problems with using your Micro Pioneer XRF?  Having trouble remembering how to do some of the tasks you don’t do very often (new calibrations, recalibration)?  Maybe employee turnover has left you struggling?

UPA Technology offers training and demonstrations by Webex remotely!  For an hourly rate, we can schedule training over the internet using our own XRF unit, either as a simple demonstration here, or set up your XRF unit as well for you to try after we show you how!

If you need some refresher training, contact us today to schedule your Webex demonstration.

From the employees at UPA Technology, we hope you have a great holiday!  We also want to let you know that our office will be closed for the holiday season after Friday December 22 and reopening Tuesday January 2.  If you have any questions or service needs, be sure to contact us before then!  We look forward to seeing you in 2024.

UPA Technology is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Version 3 of the Microderm CMS.
