I want to express my appreciation for the wonderful time I had with you and the OKM team at the Dealer Summit.

This experience exceeded all my expectations. I assumed the skill level at the Dealer Summit would be too advanced for me. However, the concepts were well explained and I have gained useful knowledge. I have been inspired to become a better dealer and exposed to the huge potential of OKM's technology.

I am proud to have the opportunity to represent you and OKM Americas. I am looking forward to the future and I am excited about the impact OKM Americas will have on many industries in the USA.

Device Diversity, Boundless Exploration

Central to the Dealer Summit was the impressive display of OKM detectors, showcasing the latest advancements in ground scanning technology. From the compact Fusion Light to the versatile eXp 6000 Professional and the powerful Gepard GPR 3D, attendees had the opportunity to explore a diverse range of devices, each with its unique features and capabilities.

Interactive demonstrations and guided tutorials allowed participants to familiarize themselves with the functionality of each device, experiment with different scanning techniques, and gain hands-on experience in a controlled environment. Whether scanning for buried artifacts, prospecting for hidden treasures, or conducting geological surveys, attendees discovered the boundless potential of OKM detectors to unlock the secrets hidden beneath the earth's surface.

Exciting Applications and Interests

The summit buzzed with excitement as OKM presented a professional ground scan project, capturing the interest of every attendee. Allegheny Metallurgical, an American company specializing in coal mining and steel production, sought the expertise of OKM's Frank and Mark to address a crucial challenge.

Seventy years ago, steel pipes were laid to extract natural gas in Volga, West Virginia, buried underground and now hindering coal mining operations. With OKM detectors and 3D ground scanners, the project team embarked on a mission to locate and seal these pipelines' wellheads without disruptive digging. The success of this endeavor not only demonstrated the practical application of OKM technology but also showcased its potential to revolutionize industrial operations.
