The ME Export Bus is a block from Applied Energistics that extracts items from a ME Network and places them into an attached inventory. The type of item to be extracted needs to be specified in the interface of the bus.

ME Export Bus can be controlled by redstone signal, if such a setting is chosen in its GUI. Together with ME Level Emitters this makes it possible to create automatic processing machines which will process items only when their amount in ME Network is lower than desired.

If the ME Network has a ME Molecular Assembler Chamber in it, it is possible to use ME Export Buses for crafting by placing an item (which represents the results of crafting) into the GUI of a bus and selecting "Always craft" mode. Make sure the recipe for the desired item is encoded on a ME Encoded Assembler Pattern, which is kept in the ME Molecular Assembler Chamber. The ingredients of the recipe must be present in ME Network for the crafting to work, too.

This way of crafting is different from crafting on request, as this can be automated just like described above: placing a ME Level Emitter and adjusting redstone settings, so that the bus will craft certain items up to a set limit, after which it will turn off. Note that the bus has to be connected to a storage-like inventory (a chest), and the results of such crafting have to be extracted using ME Import Bus.
