Wood Composite Simulations


Technology Advancement for the Panel Industry


WoCS is an internationally operating company located in Switzerland.

We offer simulation-based solutions for the wood panel industry.




The software Virtual Hot Press (VHP) is a simulation platform for process optimization, product development, research, education and training in the wood-based panel industry. VHP is based on a mathematical-physical model developed at Oregon State University (USA), University of Hamburg (Germany) and Bern University of Applied Sciences (Switzerland).


A new version of the stand-alone software VHP with various new features is currently under development. License sales will start in September 2021. Please contact us for further information.




Our competence is based on many years of experience in the wood-based panel industry, together with a solid understanding of the physical and chemical processes relevant during production of MDF, particleboard and OSB. With the simulation software VHP we have a powerful tool which we are happy to use for new developments and optimizations in your plant.




In close cooperation with Bern University of Applied Sciences (BFH) and other partners we offer excellence in research. You may want to conquer new markets through product innovation, or you plan to further automate your production. We would be pleased to use our competence and network for your benefit.
