Tech/Engineering - Metallurgy / Casting / Certificate from ROC Eindhoven
Dutch term or phrase: machinaal verspaner
I am translating a certificate for a 'Machinaal Verspaner' granted by the School for Mechanical Engineering and Metals at ROC Eindhoven.

I have translated it as 'Metals Process Worker' and wonder whether there are any other suggestions out there that would fit.
