Different from traditional forming process, sheet soft punch process uses only a rigid die and the other tool set is a flexible medium, such as natural or synthetic rubbers. Soft punch stamping process for flow channel in stainless steel bipolar plates of the proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) is an economic and convenient method for mass production. In order to investigate the process of soft punch stamping, a three-dimensional finite element model of bipolar plate is developed to analyze the strain variation during the stamping process and predict the defects.
