The purpose of both robots is different. Humanoid robots can be defined for functional purposes, like interacting with human environments. In that case safety is an issue. Industrial robots can run in manual and automatic mode. In automatic mode there is normally no human interacting and safety systems will also disallow this. Without human interacting, robots can run on a much higher speed.

I’d also imagine the power and size has something to do with it. In humanoid robots great pains are taken to put as much of the power and control electronics into the chassis as possible, the need for mobility is also a great concern. Industrial robots on the other hand are stationary and have little to no mobility requirements meaning that their actual frames are just big motors gears and structure. All electronics are external allowing for no limitations on power. Humanoid robots (though I’m no expert) probably have motors operating in the tens of watts maybe a few hundred at most whereas industrial robots tend to have high voltage servos operating in the hundreds of watts up to 4-5 kw and up in the very large systems.
