Default plywood deflection rating

Not an expert on load tables but from what I can understand 3/4" at 4ft
between supports would only be good for about 30lbs ??

I have a work bench made with 3/4" plywood doubled over and supported by
metal legs five feet apart.

On top of that bench I have two machine presses that weight about 50-60 lbs
each and using them creates a hell of a lot of additional downward pressure.

It's been going fine for thirty years with zero problems.
