- A bypass tray reduces the risk of a paper jam by offering an alternative short, straight paper path. It enables you to copy straight to originals – such as coloured paper, odd-sized paper or card i.e. materials which cannot be fed (or are impossible to feed) from the regular paper tray inside the device. Bypass trays can handle anywhere from 1 – 100 sheets. Bypass trays that can handle more than one sheet are called stackable bypass trays. Larger Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) will have this facility as standard.
