Inserter/infobox

The Inserter (Also referred to as the yellow inserter) is the most basic electric inserter. It is colored yellow and is use to make all advanced inserters.

Inserters cannot pick up moving items from blue belts. They also can't pick up moving items on any turning belt should the item be on the far side. If either of these actions are necessary, use Fast inserters.

Optimal time/item usage: 1 Iron gear wheel factory + 1 Electronic circuit factory → 1 Inserter factory.
