Tablet tooling
There are 2 main standards of tablet tooling used in pharmaceutical industry:
 American standard ‘TSM’ and European standard ‘EU’. TSM and EU configurations are similar to each other but cannot be interchanged.
 
U.S. TSM Standards

TSM standards are the sole reference on U.S. manufacturing specifications for tablets and tablet tooling. Established by the American Pharmacist Association (APhA), TSM is the only published standards for the tablet compression industry.
 
European EU Standards

EU (Euronorm) standard tool configurations are not published or governed by an organization or association. The EU standard is the most common tooling configuration used outside the U.S.
 
Differences Between TSM & EU Tooling Configurations:
- The TSM punch head configurations have an angled top profile versus the domed head profile of EU
- The TSM punch inside head angle for "B" punches is 37° compared to the EU, which is 30°
- Overall head thickness is greater in both "B" and "D" configurations for the TSM in comparison to the EU
- The overall punch length of the TSM tool is 0.010 inches shorter than the EU
