Not necessarily.  Most xerographic systems (which include laser
printers) normally use heat and pressure to fuse the dry ink into
the paper.  I do not think that the system described is very
different from the system that most xerographic processes use - but
it does sound good in a sales brochure....  If there is a difference
in this system, it is probably minimal.  Most systems can not use
much more heat than 50C because if a piece of paper were to get
caught in the fusing station during a paper jam a fire could be
started.  Although it has been a long time since I had my head
inside a duplicator, I suspect that the basic physics have not
changed much.
