The '''iron gear wheel''' is an intermediate product crafted from two [[iron plate]]s. It is very important for many basic and advanced recipes, including all levels of [[Belt transport system|belts]], the basic [[inserter]] and [[Assembling machine 1|assembler]], and raw resource extraction equipment such as the [[electric mining drill]]; it is also used in a number of other miscellaneous areas, such as [[Military (research)|military equipment]] (including [[gun turret|turrets]]), oil processing, power, and drones.

Aside from practical items, it is also directly involved in the [[Automation science pack|first tier of science pack]], as well as second and fourth tiers of [[science pack]] (as a component for the basic inserter and [[engine unit]]s, respectively). Gear production is therefore relatively important to continued production.
 
 
 
As gear production requires a sizeable amount of iron, it requires less space to transport the finished product. In some circumstances it may be worth considering transporting the gears, which could save space on infrastructure. Alternatively as they can be assembled from iron in a single step, if a sufficient supply of iron plates is available in the area, making the gears near where they will be used could reduce the number of ''types'' of items being transported there.

The iron gear wheel is an intermediate product crafted from two iron plates. It is very important for many basic and advanced recipes.

History

  • 0.10.0:
    • Changed stack sizes of items to be 10 based, so it fits the inserter/requester count values.
  • 0.7.1:
    • Stack size increased from 64 to 128
