Key features

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.

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.

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.

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.

Harsh and cleanroom applications

IRB 1300 features IP67, Foundry Plus 2 and cleanroom ISO 4 versions, enabling new applications in harsh and contamination-free production environments. Foundry Plus 2 offers stainless steel on end-effector to prevent rusting.

Enhanced protection

By helping to protect against premature wear, this feature can help to prolong the robot’s service life, minimizing disruption caused by downtime and unscheduled repairs.




Key industries


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, 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 Foundry Plus 2 version are available 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.


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.
