ABB launched the SWIFTI CRB 1300 industrial collaborative robot, bridging the gap between industrial and collaborative robots and providing ease-of-use for those non-robotics specialists.
“Our customers are looking to robotic automation to make their processes more flexible, efficient and resilient, helping to counter labor shortages by enabling their employees to perform more value-added work,” says Andrea Cassoni, managing director for global general industry robotics at ABB. “The latest addition to our SWIFTI family is a highly accurate, high payload cobot that’s up to six times faster than other robots in its class. This means it can be used by both SMEs and large manufacturers looking for collaborative automated solutions to achieve new levels of flexibility and productivity.”
- Combining speed and accuracy with expanded load handling capability of up to 11kg, the SWIFTI CRB 1300 can be used in a wide variety of production and product handling applications – from machine tending and palletizing to pick-and-place and screwdriving.
- Featuring a high-quality design, the SWIFTI CRB 1300 incorporates several features that can improve production efficiency by up to 44% compared to other cobots in its class.
- The SWIFTI CRB 1300 is said to be up to five times more precise than any cobot in its class, making it ideal for tasks requiring consistent accuracy and repeatability.
- The SWIFTI CRB 1300 prioritizes operator safety, with a safety laser scanner integrated with ABB’s SafeMove collaborative safety software.
