FREEPORT, OH—Jan. 11, 2011—Freeport Press continues to make investments in upgrading its equipment in order to improve processes and gain production efficiencies. The combination of the RS 610 horizontal log stacker with the RS 650 log palletizer and a full RS 34 compensating stacking backup system allows seamless, uninterrupted product delivery from the fastest makeready commercial heatset web offset press in the market—Komori System 38S.
