Can't speak of a fully non-assisted tongue "expressor" but our lab used
one that was, for all intents and purposes automatic. You placed your
film in the device and it "french kissed" the canister with a thin
flexible metal double layered "tongue" which had some small "barbed"
(unidirectional) protrusions that slipped past the sprocket holes on the
way in, but caught on them on the way out.  The pressure of this two
layered tongue being wrapped around the film inside the small diameter
confines of the film canister, filled with wound film, pressed the two
layers of flexible metal tongue together, and the "tongue" was then
extracted holding the film beginning between the metal layers.

This was in use in early 1980.

You should call it Pixel Dust.
