When [[inserters]] are moving from one [[Storage/Stack]] to another (or loading/unloading trains) they can move more items at the same time. It works only when moving from stack to stack. In other words: If either the target, or the source has no stack, the stack size bonus doesn't work. Which is in most cases when moving from or to a belt.

Template:Technology When inserters are moving items from one stack to another (or loading/unloading trains) they can move more items at the same time after researching Inserter item stack size bonus 1. It works only when moving from stack to stack. This means if either the target, or the source has no stack, the stack size bonus doesn't work. Therefore, the bonus typically only applies when moving from machine/chest to machine/chest, and not from machine/chest to belt or belt to machine/chest.

A slow Inserter with stack size bonus of 4, which moves from chest to chest, can easily keep up with a Fast inserter, moving from chest to a belt. This is why it is recommended to directly move items that are required in high quantities at high speeds during automatic crafting.

This bonus is is also often called "inserter bonus", "stacksize bonus" , "stack bonus", etc.

It is directly related to Logistic robot cargo.
