Backed by 150 pioneering years, 100s of patents and support from the industry’s brightest minds, every Nikolaus SORG furnace is designed to your exact specifications – with our trademark efficiency, performance and reliability built-in as standard.
Once out of the furnace, our complementary conditioning systems will help you maintain the highest quality and efficiency. From distributors and working ends to forehearths, gathering bays and auxiliary equipment, we’ll design an integrated system that works seamlessly throughout the process to keep everything running at full capacity.
SORG uses mathematical concepts and language to understand the melting process, analyse the effects of different components in glass production, and make precise predictions of the furnace’s design impacts on product quality. Mathematical modelling is today’s most advanced tool to prove and improve the existing design, as well as develop new technologies.
We utilise modern design tools to create furnaces and glass conditioning systems. The key to making the best use of this technology is the operator’s expertise and team collaboration.
The digitalisation of the glass melting process presents many opportunities both for glassmakers and glass itself. From raw materials to glass delivery, SORG is developing innovations that will increase the predictability of melting glass across many applications, to provide a secure future.
