FOTOBLECH - Software licenses


What does the software do? The FOTOBLECH software converts any images into special perforated sheet patterns with holes of different sizes. The algorithm is a patented in-house development and specially optimized for the possibilities of punching machines. There are also more from 40 pattern generators, which create individual patterns.

With our method, more information can be displayed per area than usual, which makes the images more recognizable. It is constantly being expanded and offered in different versions.

Do you only offer the software or do I also get finished sheets? Both as well. Depending on your wishes, we provide the software, the conversion service or the finished punched perforated sheets.

What do I need to make the software run with me? The software runs in the cloud. This means that no installation or special requirement is necessary - apart from Internet access. Dealing with it is simple and self-explanatory. You can start your project immediately.

Our patented process


Lunova GmbH has held the FOTOBLECH patent since 2013. It allows much more information to be transmitted per area than would otherwise be possible. This enables finer structures, finer gradations and better display quality.

The acquisition of a FOTOBLECH software license includes the right to use this patent.

More than perforated sheets

The FOTOBLECH output formats


PDF. A format for previewing the conversion. Incl. Information on free area and hole density as well as adjustable foreground and background color. All licenses.
DXF. Vector format for use in planning and punching. Only with architect and manufacturer license.
SVG. Vector format for presentation on the web.
CSV. Vector data table. Manufacturer license only.

Finger protection


With certain hole diameters, there is a risk that children can get stuck in it with their fingers.

Wherever children's hands come near the perforated plates, our software should do so with the "finger protection" function certain hole diameters are excluded and converted into harmless hole diameters.

Protection especially for railings

More efficient punching


Due to the special conversion algorithm all images are stamped with a minimum set of punches. That enables us to punch motifs efficiently and without conversion.
