Digital to Metal type

I'll cut right to the chase: I'm to write an academic paper that covers any topic related to lead type in general. Since we're encouraged to research a topic that we know little to nothing about, I thought it would be interesting to delve into the relationship between digital and foundry type, or more specifically, typefaces that were born in the digital and brought to metal post-issue.

The closest that I can find would be our dear friend Jim's Stern, which was simultaneously issued in both metal and digital forms.

So this might be a stretch—given that the skills for producing metal type are anything but common in this age—but is anyone familiar with any such faces or the process that goes into the conversion?


Asking for my friend, I will start with Futura in first Volvo picture. Rest? :D.
She is particulary interested in those numbers.

Thanks
