|German term or phrase: Teilezurichter|
|"Neben den traditionellen Berufen im gewerblichen Bereich wie Technischer Zeichner, Werkzeugmacher, Fertigungsmechaniker und Teilezurichter wird im kaufmÄnnischen Bereich Internationales Wirtschaftsmanagement als Zusatzqualifikation fÜr Industriekaufleute angeboten." This is about a sheet metal company.|
"Zurichter" has the meaning of "finishing, setting up, etc." behind it. While I like sheet metal worker, I am not sure it tells all the story.

metal worker (Teilezurichter)
As so often, as there doesn't seem to be a direct translation of this particular profession, it's probably the safest to use one verion in the text and give the other (translation or original) in parantheses.
It seems that the tasks of a "Teilezurichter" depend on the actual work area, and the term itself covers everyone preparing parts in different areas.
Teilezurichter/in mit dem Arbeitsgebiet Gießereitechnik sind an der Produktion von Gußteilen beteiligt, die in verlorenen Formen (Hand- bzw. Maschinenformen) mittels Kokillen- oder Druckgießmaschinen hergestellt werden.
In the US, the distinction is apparently made according slightly differently:
Wrought Iron Worker Sheet Metal Worker
Painter Cabinet Maker
Metal Cutter Woodworker
Welder Metal Worker

Sheet metal worker among many other things:
Independently fabricates sheet metal parts
"Metal worker" would be a good umbrella term.

metal finisher = metal plating, not producing parts!
The metal finisher is concerned with different plating and other treatment of metallic surfaces.

EPI has been a manufacturer of specialty chemicals for the metal finishing industry since 1954. Specifically, they manufacture proprietary chemical processes used in plating, black oxidizing, phosphating, metal cleaning and rust prevention. The company is based in New Berlin, Wisconsin.
f a metal finisher eliminates cyanide from his facility, this eliminates all the environmental paperwork for cyanide. Another advantage to the alkaline non-cyanide copper and silver processes is that it costs less to waste treat by only using calcium hydroxide (lime) versus sodium hypochlorite (bleach)/sodium hydroxide. So the metal finisher can eliminate another chemical, bleach, from his facility by switching to the processes.
