Equipment Gantry

Can insert equipment into an item's equipment grid. Has 3 internal containers for item processing.

Put armor or vehicles with grids in the grid item input, and equipment in the equipment item input. The grid item will be placed into the output slot once 1 equipment item has been inserted or the process fails.

Equipment is put in the grid left to right then top to bottom. Plan the insertion order as part of your gantry assembly line.

Equipment Remover Gantry

Removes equipment from an item's equipment grid. Has 3 internal containers for item processing.

Put armor or vehicles with grids in the grid item input. The emptied grid item is moved to the output slot. All removed equipment is buffered internally and moved to the equipment slot as soon as there is space for it. Another equipment cannot be emptied until the equipment slot is empty.

Intended use cases

Put roboports and power generation in a spidertron before it is used in Space Exploration's spidertron rocket-drop remote colony building.

Put equipment in a vehicle before the vehicle is deployed by AAI Programable Vehicles vehicle deployer.

Remove all equipment from armor before the armor gets used in an upgrade recipe (which would destroy the equipment).

Known limitations

There is currently no way to add or remove items from in-grid equipment, such as a in-grid burner generator.
