In the beginning was a unique idea. Since then, OKM is dedicated to the development and production of exceptional technologies: treasure and metal detectors, geophysical measuring instruments and water detectors.

The detectors are handcrafted at the company's headquarters in Altenburg, Germany, and thus meet the high demands of German engineering. Thanks to continuous innovation, the incomparable detectors by OKM will continue to provide treasure hunters, archaeologists and professional users with state-of-the-art functions in the future.

OKM Technologies take Treasure Hunters to a new Level

Treasure hunting with detectors does not end with an acoustic signal, as treasure hunters are used to from conventional metal detectors. Thanks to unique developments OKM detectors are able to:

Additionally, OKM‘s metal and treasure detectors reach beyond the capabilities of conventional metal detectors in terms of depth: Depending on the nature of the soil and the size of the object, treasures can be discovered at great depths. This is possible by OKM's innovations such as the Super Sensor and the Telescopic Probe. The latter offers a more flexible application and a space-saving advantage in terms of transportation.


OKM Products: Close to the user and up to date

Thanks to continuous innovation, detectors by OKM offer new functions which assist treasure hunters, archaeologists and professional users in their work. The main improvements are greater ranges and more precise measurement results on the one hand, and simple usage of geophysical measuring instruments and software on the other hand. Multilingual user interfaces, multicolored displays and clear menu structures are just some of many user-friendly features offered by detectors developed by OKM. In our fast-paced, networked world, Live Stream and wireless data transmission are standard features of the latest detector generations.
