An instantaneous way to send items into the core.
Placing a smelter or a crucible next to a router placed on a conveyor will provide all needed items that are placed on the belt. It is the most compact way to make a smelter/crucible system and it will never clog since a router does not give item to an entity that cannot recieve more of this type of item and will just follow its course
(# = router, ◘ = smelter/crucible, > = conveyor)
