The online wood technology encyclopedia WOOD TEC PEDIA is a freely accessible publication of technical terms, innovations, images, brochures, product information, machine descriptions and series taken from the field of woodworking technology.
The initiator and publisher of the encyclopedia is the Höchsmann company, a leading international trading house for second-hand woodworking machines. In 2016, Höchsmann carried out extensive revision of the encyclopedia which was first released in May 2011 for free public use.
WOOD TEC PEDIA also presents models which are no longer in production.
In the mid-1990’s, the Höchsmann company started to become intensively involved in second-hand machinery.
Whilst compiling suitable and interesting articles for our new company magazine, the idea emerged in 2009 to widely publicize the brochures we had collected throughout the previous years. The result after countless hours of work on the part of our specialist editors and our IT- and marketing experts, is a popular platform used throughout the world, offering knowledge and information on manufacturers, types of machines, machine series, technical texts, images, brochures and videos. In 2016 we reached a total of approx. 50 000 entries.
