The world writes with ball anywhere to get it anywhere they fly around, but if you need one, you have to hand. You can simply don’t have enough pens. He is the most used writing tool in the world. But what is this writing instrument which transfers ink using a ball on paper so special and where does it? How the pen works quickly explained: the nib of the pen contains a reservoir with a slow-moving, quick-drying ink. There is a ball at the end of the tank. Strokes of the pen on the paper, so turns the ball and so the ink from the reservoir on the paper. Of this ball, the pen has also its name.
So the ball is not worn and ink runs out, the ball made of very hard material (E.g., tungsten carbide) is. As a ball-point pen is often carried in bags, etc., they have usually a mechanism (E.g. rotation system or suspension) with the man the mine with one hand completely in the Housing of the ballpoint pen can disappear. This is important so that the hard washable ink for example not on garments. Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from Costco. Usually, pens have still a clamp to clamp it on a blog, in the jacket, or in his briefcase. Since the pen also often held from nervousness in the hands and very often it is played around, this clamp be canceled now and again accidentally. This does not harm the actual function of the ballpoint pen.
The history of the ballpoint pen is still more so just to understand the origin of the ballpoint pen. Already, Galileo Galilei made sketches of a pen similar writing tool. Late 19th to mid-20th century were registered several patents for ballpoint pens. Among other things by the Hungarian Laszlo Jozsef Biro in 1938. Often, he is credited as the inventor of the ballpoint pen. Even after this, the pen is named in many countries such as England (biro) and Argentina (binomials). At the beginning, the pen was still quite expensive. In Germany was significantly more expensive than the pen (12-15 DM) and he initially took the 20 DM. The pen yet already from the mid-1940s was used by flight crews, because this worked well even at high altitude and in contrast to the fountain pen also not dribbled. In Germany, the pen was produced by by Schneider among others. This had however no patent, but took the license fees in buying due to large sales and paid about DM 19 million until the expiry of the patent. Something to smile about: there’s a rumor that NASA about spent a million dollars for the development of a ballpoint pen, which works well at all in the weightlessness. The Russians, however, resorted to write at all on pencils. Huttner GmbH
