The Disassembler is a machine added by GregTech 5. It is used to take apart components, tools, and machines.
It can only take apart GregTech machinery made in the Crafting Table.
When disassembling an item, the disassembler has a chance to return each of the items that went into the original crafting. The chance for each item is equal to 50% + 10% * the assembler's tier. As such, a Basic Disassembler has a 60% chance to return each piece, while an Advanced Disassembler IV will always return all of the items that went in to the original craft.
Disassembling and re-crafting damaged electric tools is an efficient way to repair them.
The time and energy needed to disassemble an item depends on the number of items it was made of, and the number of those items which will be returned. The minimum time required is 80 ticks (4 seconds) if 0 items will be returned. Each additional item to be returned multiplies the time by 1.7. Therefore, if all 9 input items to a recipe would be returned, the machine would take 9487 ticks (474 seconds, almost 8 minutes) to produce its output.
Unlike some other GregTech machines, higher tiers of Disassembler do not operate faster than lower tiers; the Advanced Disassembler IV operates at the same speed as the Basic Disassembler. However, the higher tiers of Disassembler added by GregTech 5 Unofficial (beyond the IV-tier Advanced Disassembler IV) will operate more quickly, doubling in speed for each tier.
