Entrust Manufacturing Technologies Launches OEM Production Division

Entrust Manufacturing Technologies, Inc. has launched Vortakt, a new component manufacturing division specializing in OEM partnerships for gundrilling applications. Vortakt leverages the deep-hole drilling expertise and equipment produced by the UNISIG division of Entrust to provide solutions for high-volume production. 

"With an initial focus in the firearm industry, Vortakt offers its services to barrel manufacturers that need a partner to help elevate the quality of their products and provide reliable service using state-of-the-art technology. Vortakt can handle mass production runs. Vortakt's calculated approach to production gundrilling uses a tried-and-true set of processes - as well as manufacturing technology from UNISIG - to offer enhanced gundrilling and the additional steps necessary to produce rifle barrels," said a company spokesperson. 

 Chad Weister leads the new division, with an emphasis on growing its presence in the industry through continued investment by Entrust. An engineer with nearly 15 years of experience in the deep hole drilling industry, Weister oversees a team of expert technicians running multiple production cells. "We are machinists and engineers, not gunsmiths," said Weister. "Our precise processes and extensive data, as well as decades of collective gundrilling, reaming, rifling and manufacturing experience, mean that we do not just make great barrels - we do so consistently." 

 In addition to providing contract production to its firearm customers, Vortakt also assists OEMs in all industries with application assistance and design expertise. Although Vortakt frequently produce components from customer-supplied dimensions or to internationally recognized standards, Vortakt also works directly with customers to help them develop suitable solutions to manufacturing needs.
