Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / pen mechanism
English term or phrase: propel-repel pen mechanism
propel-repel mechanisms seem to exist in all sorts of dispensing devices these days, there are deodorant sticks with it, I just cannot find a German equivalent.

With more than 21 registered patents, the xxx company soon developed and marketed many important "firsts" in the field of writing instruments. These include the *propel-repel* mechanical pencil, a forerunner of today's mechanical pencils, and the Stylographic pen, the precursor of the ball-point pen by more than 70 years.
