IRB 1300 - Class-Leading Powerful Performance in a Compact Package

The IRB 1300 offers class-leading lifting ability, reach, and path accuracy, in a faster, more compact package to enhance both productivity and production-line flexibility.

High lifting capacity

The IRB 1300 six-axis industrial robot has the reach and lifting capacity to serve high-load applications in electronics, general industry, food & beverage, logistics, and tier 1 automotive production. Available in three main load/reach versions - 11 kg/0.9 m, 10 kg/1.15 m, and 7 kg/1.4 m - the 11 kg variant offers the highest payload of any robot in its class.

Faster cycle times speed up production

Rapid production is ensured by the IRB 1300’s 27 percent improvement in cycle times. Combined with greater payload and reach, the IRB 1300 can be used for a wide range of tasks in materials handling, machine tending, polishing, and assembly and testing applications.

More production in a smaller space

Meeting the need to maximize production capacity while saving on space, the ABB IRB 1300 is nearly 60 percent lighter and one-sixth the footprint of ABB’s IRB 1600 robot. Occupying just 220 mm by 220 mm of floor space, the IRB 1300 enables more robots to be deployed in a given area.

Advanced motion control

Complex applications such as polishing and machine tending are made possible by ABB’s OmniCore controller, giving the IRB 1300 advanced motion control and best-in-class path accuracy.

Features and Benefits

  • Compact: Design allows deployment in confined spaces
  • Productivity:  Up to 27 percent shorter cycle times
  • Flexibility:  83 percent smaller footprint maximizes space utilization
  • Quality:  Class-leading accuracy for high quality manufacturing
  • IP40 protection

Main Applications

  • Electronics:  Fast and compact and offering class-leading lifting and reach capabilities, the IRB 1300 is the perfect solution for boosting productivity in electronics polishing, deburring, sanding, buffering, assembly & testing, and screw driving applications. Weighing 60 percent less and with an 83 percent smaller footprint than its predecessor, the IRB 1300 is ideal for use in confined spaces, while its 27 percent faster speed, longer reach, and higher payload enable heavier loads to be moved more quickly over longer distances.
  • General Industry:  Rugged and compact, the IRB 1300 can be deployed in machine tending applications to handle multiple CNC machines.IP67 and the Foundry Plus 2 version will be released in 2021 to strengthen IRB 1300's protection capability against harsh environments. The IP67 and Foundry Plus 2 protection will enable customers to pursue various harsh applications, such as polishing, grinding, buffing, sanding, and deburring. 
  • Food & Beverage and Logistics:  27 percent faster than its predecessor and offering a variety of payload and reach options, the IRB 1300 is the ideal solution for ensuring fast and efficient picking and packing in food and beverage and logistics applications. It can pick different size parcels, cartons and boxes from high speed systems.
  • Auto Tier 1:  The IRB 1300 is designed for Auto Tier 1 and automotive electronics applications where operational space is a concern. With its higher payload and longer reach, it also helps to open new possibilities for using small robots for a range of other potential Auto Tier 1 applications for all car parts such as welding, cutting, materials handling, machining, and assembly and testing.
