    Can I use the IBR 1300 with area scanners if I need a 10kg Payload?
    I guess I am trying to understand how is SWIFTI different from IRB1100 with area scanners?

    @rohan_g Yes, you can use it the IRB1300 with safety scanners. 
    To clarify the difference between IRB1100 and CRB1100, please note that the difference between both robots is:1) branding and collaborative labeling,2) laser scanner and SafeMove included in package with an attractive price3) lead through device,4) interaction light on process hub,5) SafeMove configurator on Flexpendant, plus it has all the features of IRB1100! Additionally, CRB 1100 is running on the new Omnicore controller and is using the new FlexPendant.

    ABB has launched two new collaborative robot (cobot) families, GoFa and SWIFTI, to expand its cobot portfolio and accelerate automation in high-growth segments like electronics, healthcare, consumer goods, logistics and food and beverage.The GoFa CRB 15000 is a 6-axis cobot with a 950mm reach, 5kg payload, and speeds up to 2.2m/sec. It features intelligent torque and position sensors in each joint to enable close human-robot collaboration. 


    GoFa can be programmed via lead-through programming or ABB's new Wizard software using simple graphical blocks
    .The SWIFTI CRB 1100, based on ABB's IRB 1100 industrial robot, offers a 4kg payload and up to 580mm reach. With a maximum speed over 5m/sec, it is designed for intermittent human-robot collaboration in tasks like assembly and polishing. SWIFTI integrates a safety laser scanner and ABB's SafeMove software to enable safe collaboration at higher speeds without physical fencing.Both GoFa and SWIFTI are easy to set up and use, with no specialized training required. They are part of ABB's diverse cobot portfolio, which also includes YuMi and Single Arm YuMi, covering payloads from less than 0.5kg to 5kg. The new cobots are engineered to help businesses automate processes and assist workers amid trends like labor shortages and uncertainty driving automation into new sectors.
