Entrust Manufacturing Technologies, Inc. has announced the launch of Vortakt, a new component manufacturing division specializing in OEM partnerships for gundrilling applications. Vortakt leverages the deep-hole drilling expertise and equipment from 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 service. 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 technicians running multiple production cells. “We’re machinists and engineers, not gunsmiths,” said Weister.

In addition to providing contract production to its firearm customers, Vortakt also assists OEMs in other industries with application assistance and design expertise. Although the company produces components from customer-supplied dimensions or to internationally recognized standards, Vortakt has stated that it also works directly with customers.
