This was a very difficult model to achieve convergence. One reason is how long and thin the workpiece is compared with the example where it happened easily. I recommend you change this to an Explicit Dynamics model. That has no problem with convergence.

Note that if you move the die back up to the starting position, the workpiece will straighten out. That is because you have no plasticity in the material model.
