The inserter is notable in that it is used in the creation of [[logistic science pack]], so players must create an automated inserter assembly line. The basic inserter is also used in the creation of both the fast inserter and the long inserter, and serves as the base item for all electric inserters.

For the article encompassing all inserter types, see Inserters.

The inserter can be used to transfer items between entities such as transport belts and stone furnaces. It is the most basic electric inserter.

Unlike the fast inserter, the inserter is not fast enough to pick up items moving on express transport belts, unless it is highly compressed or items have stopped due to a blockage. Additionally, the basic inserter is unable to access items on the far side of a curving transport belt.

The inserter is notable in that it is used in the creation of logistic science pack, so players must create an automated inserter assembly line. The basic inserter is also used in the creation of both the fast inserter and the long inserter, and serves as the base item for all electric inserters.

For more information on mechanics and uses see inserters.
