Illustrator file to DXF corrupts file

So we get files from customers who want us to use a big Fiber laser to cut out flat steel parts. These files they send us are often PDF or Illustrator files that we need to turn into DXF format so we can load them into a CAD program to send to the laser. 

 

I have been unable to convert files to DXF without extreme corruption. If I open them in the CAD program the lines are no longer straight but curved.

 

If I open the saved DXF with illustrator again, the lines are broken or have artifacts on them where they are thicker than the 1 line point I chose.

 

Has anyone else had this experience and if so, have you found a solution?
