Question setting up a ssh server


I want to setup a ssh server with the following requirements:

* one ssh server
* many ssh-clients who have to login over ssh, without input of the password. You can force this autologin with ssh-add (when the machine doesn't restart, without giving the passphrase)

But now the problem:

In my setup, the clients aren't persons, but machines. These machines have to login to a ssh-server and put data on it. How can I configure this setup, so the machines can autologin and no one have to type the passphrase on the client side? Is this possible? If not, someone an other/secure way of implementing this setup?
