The present disclosure is directed to a transfer assembly (100) for transferring discrete articles (102) from or to a moving carrier member (104, 106). The transfer assembly comprises a frame (130) defining a rotation axis(132). The frame comprises a track (134) having a circumferential shape surrounding the rotation axis. The transfer assembly comprises transfer members (112) movably engaged with the track, each having a transfer surface (136). The transfer assembly comprises a wheel (138) engaged with the frame and configured to rotate about the rotation axis. The wheel is engaged with the transfer members. As the wheel rotates about the rotation axis, the transfer members circumnavigate about a path about the rotation axis in correspondence with the track. The shape of the track causes the transfer surfaces to move radially relative to the rotation axis while the transfer surfaces are maintained a substantially constant distance away from the moving carrier member at the point of discrete article transfer.
