The Two-Sided Cam is a unique part that will double the speed of any spring-loaded mechanism it is used in, without requiring any extra torque or space. For more information, see the attached PDF.

I think that this is a good idea, especially the hole for the high strength inserts. You note that this would double the speed of any mechanism requiring a cam. However, would that not also halve the torque of the cam? If this is desired, this effect can easily be recreated with gearing.
