The abbreviations appear to be drawing location reference points
Explanation:
Is there a manufacturing or assembly drawing or blueprint associated with the text?
I suspect a drawing will show the locations "PA, BP, PF, PG, PC, PE (w, h, s, f, q, ü)"
of the "Unalloyed structural steels", "Boiler quality plate", "Tubular steel", "Fine-grain structural steel", and "Shipbuilding quality steel" components are to be welded.
