HF stands for High-Frequency (or sometimes referred to as "High Frequency Oscillator") when it comes to plasma cutting. This is a method of cutting thick materials such as steel, stainless steel and non-ferrous metals using an accelerated jet of hot ionized gas or plasma that’s blown through the material being cut. The high frequency creates an electrical arc which vaporizes the material while transferring heat away from the edge of the cut, resulting in minimal damage and distortion to the workpiece. HF also helps start and maintain stable arcs by providing a more consistent current flow; this ensures clean cuts with little slag build up on the kerf walls. It is important to note however that depending on what type of metal or thickness you are trying to cut, different levels of HF may be required for optimal performance and accuracy.

Each part in a plasma torch has a different wear rate and so should be changes at different rates. The cutting tip for instance has different size holes in it. This is so you can use a small hole for cutting thin sheets and get a more precise cut or use a larger hole to cut larger or faster on thinner materials. A sign you need to replace your outer cutting tip is when the hole gets too large meaning your cut isn't as precise. Generally you will change the cutting tip twice compared to an electrode. The electrode has tungsten in the centre to concentrate the arc. After use this wears away from flush when new to indented when used. If the indentation get to much or you have difficulty starting an arc then change your electrode.

Yes you can, but unless the cutting tip is a drag tip, the hole in the tip can block up with molten material meaning less life longevity for the tip. If you need to touch then use drag tips, if you need a precise cut where the torch needs to be close then use a torch guide.

No, differences in copper quality and machine tolerances can effect the life of your consumables. Plasma torches are precision instruments that need the right amount of current and air flow to operate optimally. Cheaper doesn't necessarily mean better!

The short answer is no! each machine has specific consumables relating to the torch manufacturer and cutting amperage. Parts are not interchangeable. Many machine manufacturers though don't make there own torches, they buy from manufacturers such as Trafimet, Parweld etc. This means that many different manufacturers machines could have the same model of torch by the sma etorch manufacturer and this case parts could be interchanged.
