(FR) ARTICLE D'ECRITURE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A writing instrument (20) includes a barrel (30) defining a channel (34), an arcuate cam member (60) coupled to the barrel (30) and a writing element (40) in communication with the cam member (60). The cam member (60) is rotatable between a first position in which a writing end (42) of the writing element (40) is retracted within the channel (34) and a second position in which the writing end (42) of the writing element (40) is extended out of the channel (34). The cam member (60) rotates about an axis of rotation (37) that is transverse to the longitudinal axis (26) of the writing instrument (20). Various features which improve the functioning of the writing instrument (20) or cam member (60) may be provided separately or in combination.
(FR)L'invention concerne un article d'écriture (20) comprenant un corps (30) définissant un canal (34), un élément came courbé (60) couplé au corps (30) et un élément d'écriture (40) relié à l'élément came (60). L'élément came (60) pivote entre une première position dans laquelle une extrémité d'écriture (42) de l'élément d'écriture (40) est rétractée dans le canal (34), et une seconde position dans laquelle l'extrémité d'écriture (42) de l'élément d'écriture (40) s'étend hors du canal (34). L'élément came (60) pivote autour d'un axe de rotation (37) qui est transversal à l'axe longitudinal (26) de l'article d'écriture (20). Divers éléments destinés à améliorer le fonctionnement de l'article d'écriture (20) ou de l'élément came (60) peuvent être ajoutés séparément ou en combinaison.
