This article proposes an analytical model of two perfectly conducting punches acting on piezoelectric/piezomagnetic materials with anisotropy. For six types of distinct or repeated roots, related auxiliary function are obtained. The closed-form solutions of the reduced integral equations are derived for two electrically-conducting and magnetically-conducting flat punches. The stress, electric displacement and magnetic induction intensity factors at both edges of each punch are given explicitly in terms of the distance between the two punches and the width of each punch. Numerical test is done to demonstrate the contributions of the distances between the two flat punches and various material properties on the contact behaviors. The obtained results delineate that at the outer edges, there has stronger strength for the singularities of the surface contact stress, surface electric displacement and surface magnetic induction compared with that at the inner edges.
