4Jtech s.r.o. was founded in 2015 as a spin-off company of the Czech Technical University in Prague, Department of Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics. The primary motivation to found the company was the possibility to apply the results of research and development in the field of modern measurement methods in industrial applications.
The working group of measurement devices was the main initiator of the foundation. The group exists at CTU in Prague since 2010 and it took part in numerous projects of contract research in the cooperation with important industrial partners (e.g. Škoda-Auto, a.s., Škoda Electric, Mavel, a.s., Electrolux Inc., …) and also in Grant projects (Competence Centre Advanced technologies for heat and electricity production, Air Cooled Condensers for Power Engineering, Development and application of measurement devices for water plants of small and medium power, …).
Among most important activities of the group was the custom design, testing and calibration of measurement devices and whole measurement systems suited for particular technical applications presented to the group. A portfolio of products has been developed and standardized since 2010 and a part of it has been published. The products have shown to have the potential to be applied in other technical fields then they were primarly designed for.
Since the foundation of 4Jtech s.r.o the company buys the licenses to produce and sell individual measurement devices and whole measurement systems which were (and still are) developed by the team at CTU in Prague.
