Nosebar Transfer

A nosebar transfer (or knife-edge transfer) is a smaller pulley used at one or both ends of a conveyor to reduce the space between conveyors and aid in small parts transfers between conveyors or to other machines. Even when conveyors with standard pulleys are placed extremely close together, there’s still a gap equal to the diameter of the pulley. By using a smaller pulley, that gap is reduced.
