Tech/Engineering - Manufacturing / Foundry
French term or phrase: tourneur numérique
This is a position at a French foundry company (i.e. metal-related 'tourneur' I would have thought, rather than wood). Loads of references to it in French, but I can't find a recognised English translation. Digital turner?? Doesn't look like it.

Any suggestions much appreciated.
