The TITAN on-line ion trapping facility at TRIUMF is dedicated to precision experiments with short-lived radioactive isotopes, among them mass measurements. A new approach is to breed the ions into high charge states using an electron-beam ion trap. To counter any increases in energy spread caused by charge breeding, a cooler Penning trap is being developed. Sympathetic cooling mechanisms utilizing electrons and initially cold protons will be investigated. Details of the setup as well as the current status are reported.
