Yesterday when winding down from work I found this article: https://www.jstor.org/stable/40968162. Although it seems to be written by a non-drummer, the research seems well-intended and provides a good level of detail about Zildjian and Sabian manufacturing methods (certains bits of information may not be that precise though, possibly because of the writer’s lack of background). The “meaty” part of the article starts at page 42.

The fact that the article is from 1989 adds to the matter, as you can see the level of automation present at that time.
