Absolutely. Telling a muscle it needs to work harder is rarely a bad thing. People often associate speed with sloppy reps, but that's not accurate. I like controlled speed.

Moving a heavy weight from point A to point B is going to require force, and part of that force equation is acceleration (speed).

Force = mass x acceleration.

Even on very heavy weights where you don't feel like you are accelerating much, you are still trying to accelerate, which is improving force output.
