Enhanced range delivers significant performance and up to 20% energy savings

ABB Robotics is expanding its large robot offering with four new models and 22 variants offering more choice increased coverage and greater performance. The next generation models include the IRB 6710, IRB 6720, IRB 6730 and IRB 6740, suitable for payloads ranging from 150kg to 310kg, with a reach from 2.5m to 3.2m, offering customers greater choice and significant performance and energy efficiency improvements.

These large robots are in response to our customers’ need for more choice and greater flexibility and are designed to help customers build consistency and resilience across a range of industries including automotive, Electric Vehicle, general industries, foundry, construction, metal, electronics, food and beverage, and logistics.


High performance

Class-leading position repeatability of 0.03mm, with outstanding cycle time thanks to OmniCore™ motion control

Energy savings

Up to 20% less energy consumption[1] thanks to a lean design that is up to 10% lighter[2], plus OmniCore™ power saving

Greater choice

Modular design enables 22 powerful variants to meet different customer needs

Designed to last

11 of the robot variants are equipped with a LeanID DressPack that eliminates swinging cables and supports off-line programming

Wide range for greater choice

These large robots are based on the same groundbreaking modular design, with standardized components across all large robot platforms, including the base, lower arm, and upper arm. All of the robots now have the same footprint, enabling faster, more convenient, and more flexible installation when changing robots in different production lines.

Robot variants:
  • IRB 6730-270/2.7
  • IRB 6730-240/2.9
  • IRB 6730-210/3.1
  • IRB 6730-220/2.9 LID
  • IRB 6730-190/3.1 LID

Consumes up to 20% less energy

Helping customers operate more sustainably, these large robots consume up to 20%[1] less energy. This was achieved by the robot’s lean design, up to 10% lighter[2] and the OmniCore™ controller’s revolutionary, energy-saving power grid feedback solution.

Unprecedented performance thanks to OmniCore

These large robots are powered by the OmniCoreTM controller and RobotWare, providing best-in-class motion control enabled by ABB’s TrueMove for increased accuracy, QuickMove for high speed, and SafeMove for safe collaboration. The highest level of performance is achieved through numerous performance enhancements, including class-leading pose repeatability of 0.03 mm, and path repeatability of 0.08mm, and outstanding cycle time, and stiffness. These improvements increase productivity by enabling more products to be manufactured in less time. 

The ability to withstand harsh applications

Built to operate in the harshest environments — available with Foundry Plus protection.


Ideal for a wide range of applications, including material handling, high-precision assembly, spot welding, laser welding, dispensing & gluing, and machine tending. In the automotive sector, these robots can support EV battery production of varying sizes (individual cells, modules and complete packages), high-precision car body assembly, as well as spot welding and the ability to enter tight spaces inside a vehicle to install dashboards or seats.
