A robot with a workload capacity of 30kg, will not be able to lift a 30kg box. Here’s why

Because robotics are integrated for their precise repetive motion. But exactly what they do is up to the company. Some robots have welders. Others may have metal grippers or suction cups. All of these tools vary in weight, and will take away from the robot capacity. If the robot has 30kg workload, with a 10kg gripper, you are left with 20kg of workpiece to manipulate
