Items and blocks can travel along these links.
A Sucker will suck items out of adjacent inventories and output them to the next node.
An Inserter will insert items into inventories.
A Splitter will share the items between multiple outputs.
A Sorter will output the items based upon the filters you setup within the block, you must link the same coloured side to output the items filtered to that colour.
