In my factory, this, by far, is the biggest bottle neck.  I would ask for a simple change.  Double the crafting speed and half the screw cost (after the doubled speed, as in, 10 per min costs half as many screws as the current 5 per min).

A lot of things depend on these and on the things built from them.  Even the above suggestion might not be enough of a fix.

Good Afternoon,

I honestly don't think you're supposed to use the regular recipe for hardened plates once you hit mid-game. There are currently two alternate recipes for hardened plates: Stitched Iron Plate and Alt: Reinforced Iron Plate. I have created a list at the bottom of how all 3 recipes stack up against each other.

(All values are in Items Per Minute)

                                              Plates  |  Second Item  |  Out
Reinforced Iron Plate:       20                 120                5
Stitched Iron Plate:            15                  75                7.5
Alt: Reinforced Plate:        25                  60                7.5

Well since you spoiled that might as well say that Stitched Iron Plates use Copper Wire for the second item and the other still uses screws.

Go look for pods and use the M.A.M. on the hard drives you get from them. They give you alternative recipes; Reinforced iron plates has two different alternative recipes.
