Electric Pot Furnaces

Electric Pot Furnace for Art Glass Studios

Falorni Gianfranco srl has been producing glass furnaces for more than 45 years in Italy. Our company has always tried to bring the best solutions to the market. For many years, we have designed glass furnaces especially for Glass Studios. Our plants are used by Masters in Murano such as Demajo, Ballarin, and by manufacturers such as the French Companies of Baccarat and Lalique. Other Falorni plants are in operation in Denmark, Scotland and many in the USA. The Fully electric Pot furnace is the answer to the request of very high quality of the art glass producers. The main characteristic of the electric heating of the furnace is the very good homogeneity of the mass of glass during the working time.
