Hmmm, other than the pellets, it sounds a bit like Xerox's (formerly Tektronix) solid ink printers.

"They still run some 650s": The 650 was HP's first color inkjet. Very very old, as these things go.

Re: Xerox's solid ink printers: Yes, rather similar. It's known as "phase-change" inkjet. Been around a long time. The "toner pearls" are easier to feed than the chunky blocks used on the Xerox.

In Europe printer manufacturers do not have the right to require that customers of their printers buy replacement ink from the same manufacturer. The pellets are something that competing ink cartridge manufacturers cannot easily reproduce.
