Butt end transfer
A butt end transfer is when two conveyors are literally put together in line in such a manner that one chain is short of touching the other chain by at least 1/4". A dead plate or small rollers are placed between the gap to allow the product to run or be pushed across. It is not advisable to use the dead plate transfer for the following applications: Twin sided driven belt conveyors can be used to grip most types of containers (especially with vertical side faces) and laterally carry them over the dead spot on the butt end transfer. Using this technique, high-speed transfers can be accomplished under specific conditions.

Side transfer
A side transfer is when two conveyors are placed side by side so that the package is guided via angled guide rails from one conveyor onto the other. This insures that the package will be controlled and powered from one conveyor onto the next. The items one should consider when designing side transfers are: S-curve transfer
A S-curve transfer is when two conveyors run parallel together in an elongated S form so that the guide rails are straight and the conveyors flex at the transfer. This insures that the package will be controlled and powered from one conveyor onto the next in line with minimal side forces and maximum control. Although, this type of conveyor is more expensive than the traditional side transfer, the control for difficult shapes is superior and guide rail change over to other sizes is quicker and more accurate. The items one should consider when designing S-transfers are:
