This year's summer event of the Bundesforum Mittelstand e.V. was hosted by OKM Metal Detectors. At OKM headquarters, a golden pyramid within a business park in Altenburg, the manufacturer of geophysical instruments builds premium-quality metal detectors, ground scanners and ground penetrating radars (GPR). All invited guests used the opportunity to take part on a guided company tour, an exciting presentation as well as a little treasure hunt.


This short introduction video for the Future 2018 metal detector gives an understanding of its main features. One very unique characteristic is the turnable measuring probe that can be used in vertical as well as horizontal position. The Future 2018 is the perfect detector for starters but also suitable for any treasure hunter or archaeologist.


The introduction of the Future 2000 in 1998 started a very exciting development of metal detectors, ground scanners, ground penetrating radars and water detectors. Today, 20 years later, OKM celebrates this first milestone with a new 3d ground scanner that fits in everybody's budget. Follow us on an exciting journey through time and see how OKM's metal detectors changed over time. There is only one thing that never changed: all OKM detectors are Made in Germany!


In June 2000 our general manager Mr. Krauß introduced one of his new 3d ground scanners at a treasure hunters meeting in Germany. The Future 2001 (as the metal detector was named) has also been demonstrated in a live field test, that was observed by German television. All interested treasure hunters, gold seekers and archaeologists took the opportunity to get as much information as possible about the new metal detecting device, which is also able to visualize the measure values of the scanned underground in graphical 3d representations.


In 2018 we celebrate 20 years of "Future Series" and therefor we are going to introduce our new metal detector - the "Future 2018". This short sneak preview gives you some first impressions of what to expect soon ...


On June 14th, 2006 Dr. Karl-Heinz Walker, an independent, publicly certified and sworn expert of the IHK Karlsruhe (IHK = Chamber of Industry and Commerce), verified the functionality and reliability of our metal detectors and 3d ground scanners. The field tests have been conducted by utilizing the Future 2005 as well as the eXp 4000 to check if OKM's Geophysical Phase Reader (GPR) technology can detect underground objects under several environmental conditions. The field tests involved detecting gold bars, tunnels as well as non-ferrous metals at different depths.


The Future 2018 is a very special metal detector and 3d ground scanner from OKM's long lasting series of detection technology - the Future Series. It is specially designed for beginners in the field of 3d measurements and offers easy operation as well as advanced scanning features. The Future 2018 metal detector fits in everybody's budget and assists treasure hunters to discover hidden treasures, lost artifacts and buried historical items.


With the help of the geophyiscal measuring instrument Future I-160 this golden stone has been found.


This statue with the height of 15 cm is the result of an archeological excavation in Greece. By using the Future 2005 this object has been found in a depth of 1,10 m, told us the happy finder.


To locate a treasure with one of our metal detector products or geophysical instruments is very easy. Our treasure hunting devices are also suitable for beginners or users with less experience in metal detection.
