Spanish translation:"llanto de hojalata"
Explanation:
tin can be translated as "hojalata" "hoja de estano" pero dado el contexto creo que "llanto de hojalata" es lo apropiado, pero, creo que revertire a nuestros colegas con experiencia en el campo tecnico, a ver cual es su opinion.

Happy translating! ;o)

Explanation:
Se trata de una barra de estaño, no de una lámina u hoja. Por otra parte, eso de "llanto" me parece demasiado literario para un tema técnico. Yo propondría "el rechinar/chirriar del estaño".
