Officially Tested and Certified Detectors
OKM is the only German manufacturer of 3D gold detectors that has been officially tested by independent technical experts from Germany’s Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK).
During the field tests of metal detection technology by OKM (also known as the „Future Series“) several tests were conducted by Dr. Karl-Heinz Walker. He is an independent physicist and technical expert for measuring and sensor technologies as well as a publicly certified expert of the IHK Karlsruhe (Chamber of Industry and Commerce).All field tests were executed in July 2006. We supplied two of our best-selling products, the eXp 4000 as well as the Future 2005, to be reviewed by Dr. Walker, who picked some of the named devices by chance. The main reason for these reviews was to test the general trustworthiness and repeatability of the implemented detection technology we are using in our metal detectors.
With all the selected products, following tests were conducted:
- Metal detection of several metal objects (iron, aluminum, gold)
- Detection of underground voids (tunnel, plastic barrel)
- Reliability and performance tests (nearby detection, scan resolution, target depths)
After testing our metal detectors on different sites and under different environmental conditions, the technical expert Dr. Walker presented a final field test report and issued an official signed certificate.
Property Rights, Patents and Trademark Registrations
In order to preserve the uniqueness of our detection technologies, OKM initiated trademark registrations and registered numerous utility models, patents and property rights.
Authenticity verification of detectors
Over the last years lots of replicas and fake gold detectors have been introduced to the world markets. Many plagiarists pretend to manufacture 3D detectors “made in Germany”, but actually produce e.g. in Turkey, China or Iran. Be aware of pirate copies and help us to protect gold and metal detectors from OKM against fraudsters.
