Component Confusion

I am wondering if a very small component that pushes and pulls back in exists, like a tiny piston, for example like in the diagram. (It would be about 5cm max). Whilst one piston pulls in the other simultaneously pushes out. I am not sure how I would connect them either if this were possible. Thanks!!

It's called a 'solenoid'.

A large(ish) coil of wire around a hollow core that has a plunger that is drawn in as power is appled.
