The Macerator is a grinding machine added by IndustrialCraft2 and is capable of breaking down blocks and items. It is used to increase ore output and to convert some blocks and items into more useful resources.
- The Macerator grinds down 1 Tin Ore into 2 Tin Dust, each of which can be smelted into a Tin Ingot.
- Cobblestone can be ground down to sand, and gravel to flint.
The Macerator is used to grind one ore into two units of its matching dust. Each of these dusts can be smelted in any furnace to create their respective ingots. For instance, inserting 32 pieces of Gold Ore into the Macerator will produce 64 pieces of Gold Dust, which can be smelted into 64 Gold Ingots. Certain dusts can also be combined to make new types of ingots.
The Macerator can also be used to increase yield when crafting Bones into Bonemeal and Blaze Rods into Blaze Powder. Additionally, it can be used to grind Sandstone and Cobblestone into Sand, Gravel into Flint, Coal into Coal Dust, Clay into Clay Dust and smelted ingots back into dust.
Being a basic machine, it can have upgrade items such as Overclocker Upgrade and Transformer Upgrade inserted to it and be charged with a battery instead of having to connect it to the power generator.
The Macerator can receive up to 32 EU/t and package, unless it is upgraded with a Transformer Upgrade. If you supply it with any more energy than low voltage (32 EU/p), the Macerator will explode! The Macerator consumes 625 EU per operation and requires a minimum of 2 EU/t to operate continuously.

In 1.6.4 Experimental, while using Gregtech, the Macerator Recipe is disabled by default, replaced instead by the Automatic Macerator.
