PDM entered the steel service center industry in 1954 with the acquisition of the Proctor-James Steel Company in San Jose, California. In 1955, Kyle & Company was purchased, with facilities in Fresno, Stockton, and Sacramento. With four service centers, PDM was able to provide outstanding service throughout central and northern California.

A36 Hot Rolled ASTM A36 steel is the most common of the hot-rolled steels. It is available in a wide variety of shapes. The hot roll process means that the steel was brought to approximate finished size by rolling at elevated temperatures.Its yield strength is significantly less than 1018 - It will bend much more quickly than 1018 will.

Steel Beams are widely used throughout the construction industry when supporting heavy loads is required.Commonly termed an I Beam because of its shape, beams provide great load bearing support when used horizontally or standing as columns.

the structural steel industry. The advent of the mini-mills essentially eliminated the price pre-mium for the material compared with A36 and many designers have long since made the switch. Now, though, the next generation de facto stan-dard is available.

An A36 W14X605 simply supported steel beam with span L=14.1m carries a concentrated service liveload PLL at midspan. The beam is laterally supported at supports and its midspan. Consider its beam selfweight to be its service deadload, w (use ASEP steel manual for selfweight, w and other section properties).

IPE section used mainly for beams or beam column. HEA, HEB, and HEM sections are primarily used for members subjected to bi-moments or for heavy beam-columns. T-sections are produced by cutting I-sections into two halves. They are used as brackets, truss members or light beams. WIDE FLANGE SHAPESon JFE Steel Corporation's universal mill. Since then, JFE Steel has been supplying superior quality wide flange shapes based on advanced technology, efficient equipment and intensive research and development activities. JFE Steel's wide flange shapes are available up to 1000 mm in web height and 515 mm in flange width.
